Welcome to Belton ISD, a district which continues to be a leader in preparing students to excel in life. I am constantly reminded of what a great district this is. Parents enroll their children here because of the quality of education and for the unique, caring atmosphere which is provided, and I am lucky enough to work and live here. I can say without hesitation that Belton ISD is one of the greatest school districts in the State of Texas.
Belton ISD has ten elementary schools, three middle schools and two high schools located within the cities of Belton, Temple and Morgan’s Point. We are committed to fulfilling our motto, “Every Kid a Winner” and our mission of providing an education that challenges all of our students to excel.
