Box Elder School District resides in a rural community bordering the boundaries of the Rocky Boy's Indian Reservation. We serve students in grades K-12 from the Rocky Boy community, with a total student population of approximately 400 students from year to year.
Box Elder boasts class sizes with student to teacher ratios that range from approximately 15:1 to 22:1 throughout Elementary, Junior High & High school. Each grade level in the elementary has a paraprofessional designated as support staff to provide small group assistance, classroom assistance, and additional support for students.
Through the Apple ConnectEd Grant, which we received in 2014, students from kindergarten to twelfth grade receive an iPad for school use each year. Teachers are trained to integrate technology in a way that amplifies teaching and learning. Since 2019, all 9-12 grade students receive a MacBook Air to use as well.
