On behalf of the Board of Education, faculty, and staff, we invite you to visit our school district and discover the many advantages offered by our district. We believe we provide the opportunities of a large school within a small school environment. We serve a regional population and blend small-town rural values with the advantages of the Brookings – Watertown area.
The district’s strong partnerships and support within the community provides a cooperative, caring atmosphere. In 2000, the district completed a major construction and renovation project.
