Brandon, South Dakota is a small town. Only 8,705 people live there, but the Brandon Valley School District is amazing! As Brandon has been growing more schools have been built and more extremely qualified teachers have been hired. Once everyone reaches the Brandon Valley High School they are greeted and in the hands of very qualified teachers. The teachers at Brandon Valley want their students to succeed. They want to be able to prepare them for a college, a tech school, or a job right after their time at Brandon Valley High School. Every year at Brandon Valley there is a theme. Last year it was Be BV meaning representing what Brandon is all about in and out of the classroom. This year's theme was BV Invested. The district was making a point that the staff is invested into the student's education and commitment to the student's well being. Brandon Valley is truly one of the best schools in the country!

I have loved my experience at Brandon Valley! We have done so many different things and had so many different opportunities throughout my four years. I love the staff that I have interacted with during my years here. BVHS is different than other schools because we have ideals that have been instilled on us to be not only great students, but also amazing people. Overall, I think Brandon is a great place for students to be and I would not want to go anywhere else.
Brandon Valley High School is a stunning school for student involvement, safety, and academic achievement.

Brandon Valley is even rated the number one school district in South Dakota for this year. Overall, Brandon Valley is the perfect school for student involvement, safety, and academic achievement.
