We Welcome You!
The Billings School District serves 383 students in grades K-12. The district has one elementary school and one junior high/high school. We are one of the few schools remaining with all schools located on one campus, which provides a unique opportunity for our students to meet and get to know others outside their particular grade level. Our instruction is excellent, yielding a high ranking APR score of 99.8%. Our motto is "Rich in Tradition. . . Preparing for the Future." Our goal is to create an exemplary school district that is recognized for the caliber of our students, the quality of our teachers and staff, and the excellence of our instruction. We believe in the value of integrity, hard work and quality education.
"The Mission of Billings School District, which is progressive and rich in tradition, is to provide a student-centered educational experience guaranteeing our graduates are prepared, confident, and willing to creatively and effectively meet life's challenges."
What makes the Billings School District so special? I would have to say, I fell in love with our children, faculty and community from the moment I first met them. The people in this school and town are what make it stand out above all districts. This community is responsive to, and supportive of, our community school. The cornerstone at the entrance of the building reminds me of the pride that is never ending. Once a wildcat, always a wildcat! One great example of this overwhelming community support is with the construction of our new FEMA Building. The shelter was on our long range plan and bucket list, but it was the faith and trust the community that passed the bond issue. This support gave the district our required 25% to apply for the grant and make the whole idea come to life! To me this is huge! This facility may save lives for years to come. I am forever grateful for the support of this community and for their dedication to our children!
Our community sets a high emphasis on the education of its children. Community partnership is a key component of our schools' success. I am grateful that our teachers are dedicated in providing the finest educational opportunities for their children. Teacher expectations are high, and you will see evidence of this throughout the building.
There are many ways one can measure the quality of education in a district. We are confident that our success can be seen in our caring parents, dedicated school board and faculty members, and the outstanding children in the Billings R-IV School District!
