  • This school actually had a large number of great teachers; The problem however is that they have so many student to be able to provide the much needed help.
    Many of the new teachers were former student and hold degrees from Berkeley, Stanford, UCLA, Yale, Harvard, NYU, USC,and Columbia just to name a few. The school may not be preforming at the level that it should, however we must realize that as motivating as these teachers might be, parents need to play a crucial part to raise the bar.
    Once this school becomes a tradition school, we can only hope that Bell will begin to send more students to college.
