Alexander Graham Bell Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

I've loved my experience's for the past 2.5yrs at Bell with my son. Great teachers who are invested and encouraging. A wonderful principle who makes kids feel special & valued!

Pros: some great teachers especially the 5th grade team and the school librarian who educate, grow and inspire students. A new school campus that is accessible, sustainably built & has a great outdoor space. Cons: a campus that is repressive to both staff and students as the Principal has a fear of losing control. Kids have to eat their lunch in a subdued environment and are sometimes limited to one single clap during school assembly. The guidance counsellor would be better suited to working with inmates as she doesn't seem to like kids and is punitive instead of kind. The P.E. teacher squanders his position as one of only two male teachers at school by thinking it's okay to just show up. Opportunities to fine-tune skills and grow children in the area of teamwork and sportsmanship are not taken advantage of. There are many ways to measure a successful school. Academically I would give this school three stars but in social and emotion growth it earns none. When I asked my child why he is thriving at his new school this year, he replied 'they think I'm great'. He is the same child he was for 5 years at Bell, but his environment now is more conducive to self confidence and success.

Overall a good school - but lot of variability. I write as a parent of a student who moving to middle school after 5 years here. 1) Some teachers are outstanding.e.g. 1st, 5th best of the best . 2) Wonderful premises, and parent involvement. 3) 4th grade is weakest. One of the two teachers is v. weak, uses control, unable to adopt to kids who learn differently from her narrow style . A few parents opted out of the school due to her, and numerous parental complaints. . 4) The weakest link is the "new" principal. Loves attention and popularity.. Her first time as a principal and shows. Her actions seem to be make herself look good, but is a poor leader. She seems to have done nothing re: 4th grade control teacher w/complaints; just re-organized and moved a well loved 1st grade teacher to kindergarten without any discussion with the teacher. The teacher is v. upset and moving to a different school in new school year (just a sample of challenges). This success of the school is largely due the culture and structure set by a past principal Mr. Anderson. I worry about the new leadership. My advise - seek mentoring from respected principals (perhaps even Mr. Anderson)..

Once great school, with a lot of heart and soul! I wish the same could be said of the new building leadership. Emotionless and intimidating, she's in the process of dismantling all that once made this building so great. R.I.P., "old" A. G. Bell... You'll be sorely missed...

We moved to the area from out of state and I was used to being in a choice district. When I found out we were assigned to AG Bell and reviewed the test scores I was very worried. But then I visited and was impressed with the warmth of the staff. Well, after being here for six months I can say this school has greatly surpassed every one of my expectations. The principal is amazing - very strong leader, cares about the kids, professional and the teaching staff is putting a lot into adapting to the common core. The best part of the school though is the student body. So diverse, from all walks of life and countries and it makes for a very rich experience for my child. Don't be swayed by test scores. I would rather have my child there and with the quality of administration/teachers/parents/kids than at the many local schools that have high test scores and major issues with bullying.
