    "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"

    "As a student at BELL, what we are learning is not really as academically challenging as I'd like it to be. While I was a 8th grader my cousin was a 4th grader and knew just about the same amount of math and ELA as I did and we were several grades apart! I find myself thinking that maybe I didn't chose the right middle school to go to. It's also very cramped and my fellow students don't behave well due to the lack of discipline. I also was upset about my graduation. While my friends at other schools had an enjoyable time rehearsing for their graduation, at BELL we were drilled, yelled at, screamed, threatened and put down. Definitely not encouraged. BELL cares more about how other people see the school, rather than the students in the school."
