|Constructed in 1931, Belleville High School is nominated to the National Register of Historic Places under the multiple property documentation submission, Historic Public Schools of Kansas, as a representative of the City High School property type. The school is significant under National Register Criteria A and C in the areas of Education and Architecture. During the droughts and dust storms, and the economic challenges of The Great Depression, residents of Belleville, Kansas voiced their support of public education and confidence in the future by approving $115 ,000 in local bonds to finance construction of a new high school. The school served the city of Belleville as their public high school for thirty-one years and then as a junior high and later, middle school for fifty-one years. The school is significant architecturally (Criterion C) as an excellent representative of a Collegiate Gothic public school building, a high-style design built in a rural Kansas community in 1931. The school embodies traditional characteristics of the Collegiate Gothic style with its red brick exterior and stone detailing, multiple gable roofs and pointed arches. The design of the school reflects the latest trends in school planning with separate auditorium and gymnasium, and specialized classrooms for the manual training and domestic science departments. Belleville High School is also significant as the work of Wichita architectS. S. Voigt, a talented designer specializing in church and school design.
