Black Hills High School has spectacular staff and faculty. The teachers are very welcoming, and adjust to the needs of every student. When problems arise, Black Hills staff address these problems with individual students, or as a whole school to insure the safety and comfort of all students. Black Hills equally supports and encourages all sports, clubs, cultures, and arts. In addition, Black Hills is very motivated academically. Black Hills strives to unite all of its students, and I am lucky to be a part of the BHHS Wolfpack.
