    "We like this school A LOT better than the local JHS. My only complaint here is that the parent/teacher communication needs to be updated. The planner/note system doesn't work. Email access to the teachers is not available although necessary, and access to grades throughout the year on a website system is also necessary but not available. Other than that, this school made my child much happier than the last. It's also much easier to voice concerns to the administration vs my last JHS. However, I really do wish my concerns about teacher & grade communication would be addressed. Phone call messages into the office and using the planners as a way of communication are not effective long term. The important matter is that my child is much happier here."

    "Well where do I begin? First of all the halls are wayyyy too crammed, we once got backed up in the halls and we had to back up so the eighth grade could get to lunch! The teachers are crazy and disorganized, for example, one of my teachers lost my PROJECT! How do you loose a students project? Another thing is they assign tons of homework in each of the 5 subjects and only one teacher bothers to check it! They don't have any girl sports except cheerleading! A lot of the students are rude and mean. There is wayy too much drama in the school and not enough people to handle it! All I could say is that I'm a sixth grader who expected more from Bell, but now I'm transferring -___-"

    "As a current 7th grader at this school. I love it here. We're like family. Just behave and don't get anyones bad side. I've made so many friends here and we're practically like family. Its a really fun school to be at. We have SEM programs in doing what you like weather its sports, science, writing, art, anything. We have amazing after school clubs like Football, Math, Guitar, and more. When it's assembly time, we have a Bell's Got Talent talent show. It is truly really fun. This school makes time go by really quickly, and I don't want it to. :( I want this school to be a high school, literally. The teachers and faculty are really nice. The school is a bit hectic with the halls and changing every period, since we share the school with PS 169 but that really doesn't matter. Consider coming here. :)"

    "I laughed at the comment below. @Feburary 27th 2011 Lets take a look at why. "BELL we were drilled, yelled at, screamed, threatened and put down. " Well... what did you expect? To be praised and complemented for screaming and yelling? Kids like to have fun yes? IF you're one of the few that choose to cause trouble during these rehearsals, then I expect nothing less for it to be a sad and rather troubling time for you. "Don't behave well due to a lack of discipline." Doesn't this seem counteracting to the statement above? Hmm lets think this through. 1) Students don't behave, this leads to an upset atmosphere during graduation. If the teachers had spoke to them nicely and other stuff like that, do you expect them to stop acting like children with absolute no sense of wrong and right? 2) Sure you're graduation wasn't the BEST one out there, but you have to make put with what you get. If you fee like you're cousin in 4th grade is doing better than you, state the name of the school and lets examine further. Otherwise I enjoyed your grammar. If you had learned this outside of school is another thing, but if you had learned how to type in BELL then I feel they did just fine. <3"
