 Mr. Tony Dunn, Superintendent of Belpre City Schools:

Belpre City Schools is dedicated to being a major influence in helping the city of Belpre and the entire region grow and become an even more desirable place to live and raise a family.  We strive each day to influence our students in ways that challenge them to excel and become critical thinkers and good problem solvers.  We also strive to give them the guidance and opportunities to learn to work effectively with others to come up with ways to make our world a better place.  The work of our public schools is not easy, but good things rarely are, and we need our entire community to work with us to help shape our future leaders.  We must never lose sight of that goal to prepare our children to be productive, contributing leaders.

We strive to provide a variety of experiences for our students that will help them succeed academically, physically, ethically, and civically. The 2016-17 school year will bring more College Credit Plus dual credit classes to Belpre High School than has ever been offered before. Students can remain on our high school campus and receive college and high school credit in English/Language Arts, Math, and Technology classes. More of our teachers are studying at the graduate level to be able to teach college level courses in other disciplines as well, and it is our intention to give our high school students a great head start on their college career and lessen their tuition burden in the future. Many of our students are first generation college students, and are making great strides while still in high school to become college graduates.

We continue to refine our teaching practices and structure at our elementary building to capitalize on the teaching strengths of our staff and new technologies that enhance the classroom experience. Working with our PTO at the elementary, we have increased the number of technological devices so that every child has the opportunity to experience technology in a meaningful way every day. This year we will bring our preschool classes into our elementary building to strengthen the relationship between Early Childhood learning and Elementary school. This will create opportunities for preschool and elementary staff to collaborate more easily and will help those students in the critical transition from preschool to elementary.

While we continue to be challenged by buildings that were not designed to perform in the 21st century, we are constantly seeking ways to make our existing buildings work while we plan for the time when we can afford new facilities. We work hard daily to make sure that our school environment is safe and as comfortable and functional as possible for our students, staff, and community. Our entire staff is dedicated to creating an environment where people want to come and learn and grow together.

We expect that our students, families, and guest have an excellent experience at our schools. We welcome any input that can help us improve that experience and make Belpre an even better place. We hope you will take an active role in helping us create a very bright future.
