Its Health Professions Branch offers the most transfers, closely followed by Global Enterprises program.Bel Air High School placed 984th on Newsweek 's list of the nation's top high schools based on rankings influenced heavily by the number of students who took Advanced Placement tests the previous year.In October 2006, 12 teachers at Bel Air High School filed a grievance against the Ysleta Independent School District, claiming they were required to work during off-duty hours without compensation. The grievance claimed labor-law violations and harassment from then-principal Daniel Girard and other administrators. In June 2007, two members of Ysleta Independent School District Board of Trustees apologized to the teachers who complained, but the board voted not to compensate the teachers. After the filing of the grievance, five of the twelve teachers had either requested a transfer to another school, or quit. Daniel Girard, who had been Principal of Bel Air High School since September 25, 2005, accepted a job as a principal of Akins High School in the Austin Independent School District. After Daniel Girard left the district an independent investigator, appointed by the YISD, found no wrongdoing on the part of Mr. Girard. Upon Mr. Girard's acceptance of principalship in Austin in May 2007, Marvyn Luckett, who had previously been with the YISD for over 22 years, was appointed Principal of Bel Air High School for the 2007-2008 school year. Since then, school data based on the 2007-2008 school year show that Bel Air High School has not made Adequate Yearly Progress (August 2008).
