Why Box Elder

Student Focused

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.

ConnectEd School

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.

Mental Health Focus

Box Elder School focuses on supporting the whole child through utilizing various mental health supports. Counseling groups, individual sessions, and additional services are available to provide wrap around supports for our students to meet their individual needs.

Box Elder School Garden

Since May, Mr. Eagleman, Mrs. Reichelt & Ms. Miller, along with the help of various students and staff, planned, dug, tilled, and planted our school garden and constructed the green house. We are now seeing the "fruits" of their labor and are excited to see where the garden grows from here!
