Department Points of Pride

  • Caseload average of 20 students per Learning Specialist-We know the value of time and contact with our students, so we work to keep our caseload numbers at a low teacher to student ratio.  

  • Co-taught Model-The co-teaching model of instruction is a research-based best practice to support student needs in the least restrictive environment.  At Bell, we offer co-taught English Language Arts and Math classes many hours of the day.  These classes are supported by a general education and special education teacher; both teachers work with all students to provide them the supports they need.   

  • Social and Emotional Learning Support-Through our Advisement and Bobcat times we offer social and emotional learning curriculum covering topics such as bullying, substance abuse, task prioritization, and self-awareness.  We have a Social-Emotional Specialist on-site to facilitate lessons and serve as a resource for all students.    

  • On-site school Social Worker-Our school Social Worker is dedicated full-time to servicing Bell Middle School students.  He works with small needs-based groups in a variety of settings.  

  • Growth Data- This past year students at Bell with IEPs showed 52% growth on Math state assessments.  Our current trends indicate we will continue to see impressive growth in Math, Reading, and Writing skills.
