The Belt School has a great teacher/student ratio. There is low unemployment. New development in the area is increasing home prices and the median income. Belt gets more sunny days than any other town in Montana and has an overall low cost of living. The area is gorgeous and the outdoor recreational opportunities encompass just about everything you can enjoy in Montana.
