They pick and choose who gets in trouble and who doesn't. Once almost got my phone taken for having it out after school hours I put it in my pocket and waited for the teacher to walk away this same teacher dress code kids like crazy and you only get dress coded based on your body type this girl has started drama and bullied many but is still treated like she is innocent the school says they have an anti-bullying policy but usually pass it off as drama my teacher once wouldn't let me go to the counselor because me and this girl were arguing a lot over a science fair project she claimed it was under control and took her side when she brought in the stuff before I had a chance to I have also had some good experiences at this school such as newspaper and art club I had fun in these activities and the teacher were great my math teacher is the only reason I understand math.
My grandson did a 360 change for the good as soon he entered 2 yrs ago. This is a great school, and the teachers are a professional helper to the students. I recommend this school because proved me to be an excellent faculty.
Outstanding school! People move back to Bellmawr just for the schools. Area's of improvement; more money should be spent on the Arts.
