This is a great rural school. There are pros and cons to a small school. There are a limited number of teachers and often limited opportunities. At Custer County you have the problem of limited teachers. If your student doesn't like the Spanish teacher there isn't another to chose from, as in a city school. The BIG pro is that the teachers are, for the most part, excellent. They are caring and work to give students the best possible education. WHat I have loved about it as my kids have gone through ( both began in kindergarten) is that there are abundant opportunities. Unlike a city school kids are not pigeon holed into one activity. At Custer County kids are encouraged to try everything and be involved. Kids can be a "band nerd" and a football player....or a "drama geek" and in FFA. There are not the traditional boundaries or cliques. What I think is amazing is the way this district has kept the arts, ag education, building trades and Advance Placement classes in this time of huge budget cuts and declining enrollment. This is a great school. I am glad my children graduated from here and I wish my grandkids had a school as good in the city they live in.

A great place to educate your children and the music program is wonderful. The sports programs for my sons were great especially the baseball program who won state in 2001 and in 2008.

Custer County School is a very good place for your childrens education. The teacher to student ratio is very good, making the learning experience wonderful for all students from quick learners to children who need extra help. There are wonderful music and art programs. Many sports opportunities exist. My children weren't in sports, but their music, art and drama courses are magnificent. Parents in the area tend to have a large amount of participation in all aspects of the childrens education. If you are looking to moving to the area, it is a wonderful school with many caring teachers. There are a number of wonderful opportunities for you children even though it is a very small community.
