About Us

"Inspiring Excellence" This is our goal, our mission and our responsibility each and every day.

The School District of Black River Falls serves over 1,750 students with over 300 exceptional staff that are knowledgeable, dedicated and highly skilled at their craft. Individuals have been recognized both throughout the state as well as nationally for their contributions to the noble profession of education. The surrounding Black River Falls community shows its support for education and the work that we do through many business partnerships, co-op job placement opportunities, volunteerism, parent involvement and much more.  We have the privilege of working with these partners to assist us in realizing this vision of excellence for all of our students.

SDBRF boasts the programs and opportunities that typically come with much larger districts; this is due to sound fiscal management, extensive community support, and a school board dedicated to providing individualized experiences whenever feasible.  

We currently operate five school buildings.

  • Forrest Street Early Learning Center:  early childhood, 4-K, K & 1st grade
  • Red Creek Elementary (Brand new building in 2016):  second through fifth grade
  • Black River Falls Middle School:  sixth through eighth grade
  • Black River Falls High School:  ninth through twelfth grade
  • Gebhardt School houses several of our alternative school settings: Phoenix Program and WINN.

School safety is a high priority in our district.  Through a recent successful referendum, each of our schools has a secure entrance which allows us to carefully monitor all visitors to our schools while still welcoming families.

SDBRF is a leader in educational technology.  There are interactive SMART boards in all elementary classrooms and many at the secondary level.  Students and teachers at the high school utilize a one-to-one laptop program, where every student is given a laptop for use at school and at home.  iPads are integrated into classroom activities beginning at the earliest levels with Chromebooks available for all students starting in the second grade.  Innovative educators continue to provide incredible opportunities for our students through technology!

Our student population is rich with diversity, which is a beautiful reflection of our community.  We believe we have an incredible team of professionals that work collaboratively to serve the needs of our students. We highly encourage you to arrange for a building tour and enroll your child!  We’d love to partner with you to Inspire Excellence for your family.
