The Belpre City School District, as a leader in providing innovative education opportunities, has as its Mission a commitment to excel in preparing responsible, self-sufficient students with the knowledge and confidence to meet the challenges of a changing world through the creative application of resources and technology.
Belpre City School District is one of two “city” school districts in Washington County, Ohio, which also consists of four “local” school districts. Belpre covers a geographical area of 36 square miles and is bordered by the Warren Local School district on its north and western boundaries and the Ohio River on its eastern and southern shores. While the district has experienced a decline in enrollment over the past fifteen years, it seems to be leveling off at approximately 1200 students.
Belpre City Schools operates two main campuses with Belpre Elementary School (K-6) located in the "Rockland" section of the community while Belpre High School (7-12) is situated on some twelve acres in the downtown section. The Washington County Career Center located in Marietta, serves Belpre students interested in vocational training. The school district’s central offices are housed in a former grade school building on 2014 Rockland Ave.
