Points of Pride
Bel Air is the only campus in the Ysleta Independent School District that has a Health Magnet Program.
The Center for Health Professions at Bel Air HS is a health care professional preparation program offered to students throughout the El Paso County area. Students must apply to our program. Those who are accepted can choose from seven available pathways where they will gain hands-on experience in a health care setting, and can obtain college credit and/or certification to work in a health care field right out of high school!

A little Bel Air history...
Do you know the story behind the wooden mascot that stands regally at the school’s entrance? The statue was a gift for the school from the class of 1962. They made the decision during the fall of 1961 and money was collected from the class members to pay for the gift. The sculptor, Ramon Rocha, sketched the Drum Major Sandy Smith as the model for the statue. The project was done before the May 1962 graduation. It continues to be one of the defining symbols of Bel Air’s Big Red Pride.
