Sioux Falls has 24 elementary schools, serving grades K-5. Elementary instruction emphasizes the mastery of basic skills along with respect for one's self and others.
We have five middle schools, serving grades 6-8. Middle schools are designed to meet the academic, social, and emotional needs of early adolescents. The middle school format fosters a sense of community and cooperation while allowing plenty of opportunity for exploration - both in the academic setting and through co-curricular activities.
Sioux Falls has three traditional high schools, an alternative high school, a project based learning high school, and a career and technical education academy. Achieving our mission, to educate and prepare each student to succeed in a changing world, hinges on our ability to continually improve the effectiveness of our schools.
