Welcome to Belmont HS

Melanie S. Walter,

     At Belmont, we are honored to provide each child with the opportunity to excel and achieve in all of life’s arenas. We continue to foster a culture where EVERYONE is seen as an individual.  We believe that one’s uniqueness is a gift that is to be treasured.

   As the most diverse high school in the Dayton area, we consider it a privilege to have students from 25 countries. Through cultural collaboration, Belmont has become a place where ALL students can learn from one another.

   We work to customize and target instruction to meet the needs of all Bison, traditional and non-traditional learners.

Our Programs

BHS has many programs and attributes that set Belmont apart from all others.

The Belmont Bison are proud to have a diverse student body of 1050 students, who embrace one another’s strengths and differences, while learning from our vast collection of learners who come from 25 countries around the world!

As a 7-12 school, we encourage a six-year commitment for our students, so they have the opportunity to grow and learn at Belmont from middle to high school.  With a fully-functioning middle school, student in grades 7-8 have the opportunity to participate in athletics and academic clubs, while attending classes in their own wing at Belmont.

The WELCOME BELMONT program provides our Bison with the opportunity to participate in a cultural collaboration through which all students learn from one another.  This program has been nationally recognized by the White House as a Bright Spot!

The Navy JROTC Program is thriving at Belmont.  Our cadets have the opportunity to learn the structure, leadership and discipline that help guide them to success in school and beyond. They engage in classwork and participate in many outside functions, supporting the school and Belmont community.  Each year, Belmont Cadets attend the JROTC Basic Leadership Training in Chillicothe, Ohio.

Belmont has a unique partnership with Sinclair Community College through the Educational Talent Search, which provides interventions and opportunities for our students, along with Dual Credit options for upperclassmen.

The BHS teaching and instructional staff is eager to utilize the strategies, assessments and approaches that are necessary to increase teaching and learning in all areas throughout the school year. 

The Belmont athletic program is emerging as a leader throughout the Dayton area.  The Bison Football Team made the State Playoffs for the first time in history during the 2015 season, and they are sure to continue to be strong contenders. Each of the teams within the Belmont program continue to grow and improve, which demonstrates the dedication and perseverance of Belmont Bison.
