Very competitive school in my opinion which I think helped me strive to do better, some people do not do well with that but I think it pushed a lot of the students in my class. It is in a great location though, were surrounded by the Black Hills and we got graduate at Mt Rushmore which is an amazing experience because we are one of the very few schools that get to graduate at a national monument!

The school district has some amazing teachers and programs for being such a small school. The school is well known for academics in this region and the girls sports teams are very talented. There is a lot of Ranger Pride in Hill City, and the school and community work very well together.
I love most of the teachers, and I think they really are dedicated to helping their students learn. Many of the schools in the area don’t challenge the kids, and this school does.
