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.
Our Mission at Bellfort Early Childhood Center is to create a safe, positive, and challenging environment that will enable students to achieve their highest potential academically and socially.
