How to Register for School

Student RegistrationWelcome! We are so glad you have chosen to place your child in Bell School, where academics come first. The enrollment process is held each Tuesday and Thursday, 7:30 - 10:30 AM by appointment only.  Office staff will be available to distribute registration packets before  or the day of the registration appointment. Please be sure you have the following documents/forms at the time of enrollment:

1. Verification of Residency

Two proofs of address in the Bell attendance area with the parent/guardian name with which the student lives. This may be:

  • Utility Bill (Gas SDGE, home telephone, cable or water only) Sorry we cannnot accept cell phone statements.

NOTE:  Driver’s license and/or bank account documents are not valid for proof of residency.

If you are living with somebody else and you do not have anything under your name, you will need to bring a utility bill under that person’s name and you will need to fill out the declaration of residency document contained in this packet.
