BNT@W - Who We Are and What We Offer

Belton New Tech High School @Waskow (BNT@W) is a school of choice in Belton ISD where students learn through projects. Project Based Learning (PBL) focuses on purposeful work, collaboration, and a real-world application of skills that often culminates in showcases for an authentic audience or collaboration with professionals in the community. Students still master the same state standards found at a traditional high school, but graduate with a rare set of skills that creates both a competitive edge for their career goals and a productive leader for our local community.

BNT@W is located in downtown Belton and features a unique campus experience that has a community college atmosphere and provides students with unique opportunities to partner with local businesses and city government.

BNT@W offers 4 Career Pathways: Audio/Visual Production, Digital Art and Animation, Drone, and Legal Studies.

  • Audio/Visual Production - explores the occupation and educational opportunities for audio and visual production in a variety of industries such TV broadcast, advertising, and video production.
