Enrollment Q&A

If my child attends a feeder school, is my child automatically enrolled at Bell? 

Yes, all 7 elementary feeder schools are automatically enrolled at Bell.  If your student is attending your elementary school on an Inter-district Permit, they will need to reapply for the secondary level. They will need to complete the application with their residence school district. They will be asked for a current proof of address when we pass out the update packets for our feeders and return students in August. Our feeder schools are Perry, Penn, Paradise Hills, Pacific View, Boone, Zamorano, and Freese.

When do I register my child at Bell?/When does registration begin? 

If your child is coming from a feeder school, No need to register, they are in our system already.  But, Ms. Dean will send out information pertaining to this later.  The most important thing you can help us with is to make sure all student have the correct address, phone number and email address in the system.  This way they will receive all the information for orientation and correspondence from Bell to start the new year. If your student is new to our neighborhood or district, please contact Ms. Cathy Dean for more informaiton.

Who should I contact with enrollment questions? 

 Ms. Dean, [email protected] or 619-430-1000 ext. 3019.
