About Bellfort Early Childhood Center

  • Purchased by HISD in 1996, this school takes its name from the street on which it is located in southeast Houston. Originally opened as an alternative school, the Bellfort Academy began serving only fourth- and fifth-graders from nearby Lewis Elementary School in 1998. (Lewis served grades prekindergarten through 3 at that time.) It began serving prekindergarten and kindergarten students in 2009.


    We at Bellfort Early Childhood Center believe that each child is endowed with his or her own individual capacities and characteristics; our school, to the best of our abilities, will provide each child the highest level of education in order to help them reach their full potential.
