Box Elder School District 13-G is located in Box Elder, Montana in the north central region of Montana. The school facilities were first established in 1929, but in 1963 a fire completely destroyed the original building. The existing main building was constructed in 1965 to house a student population of 161. Today the K-12 enrollment is 389 students. With the increased enrollment over the years, several additions have been made to the main building, the most recent being new elementary classrooms.
The school district resides in a rural community bordering the boundaries of the Rocky Boy’s Indian Reservation. Rocky Boy is home to the Chippewa Cree tribe with a total tribal enrollment of more than 5,000. The majority of the students at Box Elder School are American Indians, many of whom are members of the Chippewa Cree Tribe.
