Big Sky School District Reviews

1 review
The beautiful, well-financed district doesn't value student time in scheduling or in classes. Tenured teachers are burnt out and beaten down and do the minimum. Administration has changed every two years over the last eight. They blame housing; it is really poor administration, starting at the board level. This school thinks they can cover for lack of substance with cash, style, and winning stupid rankings wars like this, as well as constantly bragging.
