Belton Independent School District is one of the fastest-growing public school districts in Texas, with families joining our community from across the state each year. As a destination district for many families, Belton ISD has maintained an exceptional reputation for academic excellence, innovative programs and an abundance of extracurricular opportunities.
At the core of our success is the mission to provide an education that challenges all of our students to excel. Our district priorities include focusing on creating supportive campus cultures which prioritize safety, security, inclusive environments and include student voice and participation; focusing on each student’s unique academic, behavioral, and social-emotional needs; increasing student achievement through the use of the district’s curriculum and data to inform instruction; and advancing highest performing academic students.
Belton Independent School District currently serves over 11,885 students on 15 campuses, with three new schools scheduled to open by fall 2020. BISD has one traditional high school (grades 9–12), one non-traditional high school (grades 9–12), three middle schools (grades 6–8), nine elementary schools (grades PK–5), and one prekindergarten campus. In May 2017, voters approved a $149.7 million bond program to fund the construction of two new Belton ISD campuses and projects at two existing facilities to address the continued fast growth of Belton ISD. The 2017 bond program will provide funds to take the District through nearly 15,000 students enrolled by fall 2025.
Located on the NAFTA Interstate 35 highway, Belton is the geographic center of Bell County, one of the nation’s fastest growing areas. BISD draws from a population of 58,000 and serves 12,000 students. The District covers 198.6 square miles including the City of Belton, Morgan's Point Resort, part of the City of Temple, and unincorporated areas of Bell County.
