Welcome to beautiful Belle Fourche, South Dakota home of the “Broncs”. We have started a great school year. The School District is composed of five grade level buildings. North Park Elementary, which includes kindergarten and our Early Intervention Program. South Park Elementary, which has grades 1-4, the Belle Fourche Middle School, which has grades 5-8, the Belle Fourche High School which includes grades 9-12, and the Belle Fourche Alternative School, which has grades 10-12.
We have a strong academic program in grades K-12. The School District recently added heavy equipment simulators to our Career and Technical Education department along with an industrial “laser” metal cutter that is computer controlled and can cut patterns in metal up to ¼ inches in thickness. Students can participate in activities such as FCA, FFA, FCCLA, Student Council, Honor Society, Youth Leadership Team (YLT), and Action for the Betterment of the Community (ABC).
The Belle Fourche School District sports facilities are top-of-the-line and include two football fields with a practice field, a newly resurfaced all-weather track, three gymnasiums, a wrestling facility and a fully equipped modernized weight room. The School District offers the sport options of football, basketball, volleyball, track, competitive cheer & dance, cross country, wrestling, soccer and golf. Our student athletes compete in the Black Hills Conference. Our School District also recognizes the club sports of rodeo, baseball and competitive shooting.
Our Fine Arts activities include plays, musicals, a fantastic Veterans Day Programs, marching band, one act play, oral interpretation and choir. These activities give our students the opportunity to showcase their many talents.
Our District uses an Alternative Calendar, which means there is no regular school on most Fridays. The morning of the Fridays we have a program called Intersession where students can come to school for extra academic help. Students can also use the Fridays to work on enrichment projects. Our School District also has vibrant after school programs at all levels K-12, which give students the opportunity to receive extra academic help or to participate in enrichment programs.
