    Belcourt Reviews

    Belcourt is a tight nit Community. Everyone is friendly for the most part. Most of the people who live in Belcourt, ND have been there their entire lives. It's one of those small town's where everyone knows everyone. They have two schools because of how big this little town actually is. For the most part it is pretty safe but just like any other town it has it's moments. The cost of living mostly goes on how much income you make. Belcourt's diversity mostly consists of Native American's. Belcourt is also called The Turtle Mountain Chippewa Reservation.
    Review Belcourt
    Its a ok place to live but there are to much drug usage and alcohol and the town community is a very bad leader in many areas. I would like to see more job offers in our area considering that we live in the poorest and highest unemployment rate in the state of North Dakota. I am currently in college taking business management courses. I wish there were more choices for our school when it comes to academic programs.
    I like how the people of Belcourt are all cheery in the morning. If you visit the gas station where people get coffee on their way to work, you can observe this.
