Butte Falls SD is similar to other public schools in that the basics are well covered. Reading, writing, and math are deeply ingrained in the curriculum. There is an emphasis on natural resources in all grades. We're located in a mountain forest next to a crystal clear stream. The outdoors is also our classroom!
