Parents, teachers, and leaders in the community have placed a high priority
on education for its young people.
The first woman teacher hired by the community was Bathsheba Rouse in
1789. From kindergarten through grade twelve, the Belpre City Schools
and local schools in surrounding areas provide a curriculum which is very
solid in education and up-to-date teaching and learning methods.
Outstanding accomplishments have been achieved by students for years as
evidenced by results on the annual Achievement Tests and Scholastic Aptitude
Local higher learning facilities and colleges are situated nearby, where
our young people can get a strong education to prepare them for a lifetime
of learning and achievements.
