I am very proud to be a parent of 3 children in this district. The District has a very personal touch and a willingness to help everyone succeed. You can see the results in the test scores, but you can't see the quality and the personal relationships found in the faculty without seeing this great school first hand. The quality of co-curricular and extra-curricular activities is top notch and the district has a goal for all to be involved. Bottom Line....They Care about their great students!

The Battle Lake Public School offers a wide variety of activities for not only the students but a great range of adult classes and activities as well. The teachers and staff are wonderful. Every kid counts at Battle Lake! Great School, awesome kids, wonderful teachers.
