Character Counts

Character education prepares students to come face to face with the realities of life, equipped and capable of making ethically sound decisions and responsible choices in a world of challenge, opportunity, and change. Character education provides a foundation upon which the educational community can share in a commitment to the academic, emotional, and social well-being of young people.

Belleville East High School has partnered with two local organizations to further our character education mission within our school and community, the City of Belleville’s BASIC initiative (Belleville Achieves Strength In Character) and the CharacterPlus organization of the greater St. Louis Region.
