Belle Fourche School District Reviews
This school district has been amazing for my whole family. We moved here from California and we were welcomed immediately. I would not change schools if I had the choice. The schooling system that they contain is amazing. The teachers here deserve to be paid more. We have many great opportunities to achieve great things. One thing that they should change is the grading scale. I believe that a 5.0 scale is a lot easier than a 4.0 scale. It will also encourage other students to do well in school.
I enjoyed my time here. It was wonderful to be in a small enough school where I knew nearly everyone. However, the administration does not know what is really going on. They are trying to implement student taught classrooms, which don’t work, and do not have students learn.
Belle Fourche School District has some great teachers who really go the extra mile for their students. I feel that more emphasis could be placed on college readiness. Our school district could use more resources. The high school facilities are old and in need of updating.
