The Belton School District serves over 4,800 students attending ten schools in northern Cass County, Missouri. In the spring of 2017, the community voted to pass a bond issue creating a comprehensive 9-12 high school in Belton. When the construction of 25 new classrooms, offices, a field house gymnasium, a natatorium, and a performing arts center are complete, Belton will have a state of the art educational facility on W North Avenue.
With continued renovations of other schools throughout our district, Belton schools strive to challenge students and bring them diverse sets of opportunities. Our schools offer courses and activities designed to create the educational outcomes our students and community desires. From project-based, collaborative preschool and elementary coursework, to college prep-level coursework and diverse extracurricular opportunities for upper level students, Belton schools stand for excellence.
BOSCO, a K-12 facility, helps students in Belton and the greater Kansas City area who need emotional, behavioral, and academic support in a smaller environment. Students have the opportunity to flourish with small class sizes, a school-based therapist, and counseling support on a daily basis. The school embodies our promise to deliver the highest level of quality education to every student.
Like many districts across the country, the Belton School District in Missouri is transitioning its traditional high school to an academy model. In this animated video, we explain the academies and why the school is making this transition. The Academies of Belton offer a number of pathways for students to choose from with the goal of personalizing their education. All freshmen at Belton High School take a course called Freshman Academy, in which the focus is placed on learning more about academic & technical skills, career development, collaboration, communication, creativity, critical thinking, digital citizenship, employability skills, ethics, high school 101, information technology application, presentation skills, problem-solving, teamwork, and devising a 10-year plan for their future. All core subject areas -- English, math, science, and social studies -- are taught through the lens of a student's selected Academy and/or Pathway.
