T.H. Bell Junior High is one of nine junior high schools in the Weber School District. T.H. Bell is located in Washington Terrace, Utah. It serves students in grades 7-9 from Washington Terrace and Riverdale and has an enrollment of approximately 620 students.
The school colors are red, white, and blue and the mascot is the Minutemen. Minutemen were a part of a militia in America's 18th century. The minutemen were a small hand-picked force out of the local militia. Approximately, a third of the men in each militia unit were chosen "to be ready in a minute's notice."
The school is named after Terrel H. Bell who was superintendent of the Weber County School District from 1958-1962. Mr. Bell instigated the building of the new school while he was superintendent. At the time of the dedication he was State Superintendent of public instruction. Later, he was in President Reagan's cabinet as Secretary of Education from 1981 to 1984.
