Blackduck is a great school with a lot to offer to the students. They always do well in math compitions, speech, knowledge bowl, and athletics. Academically they are a very strong school. I would recommend the school to anyone who was considering it.

Blackduck high school has high academic performance and does a great job of preparing students for the future.

This is a great school for its size. I wish there was more diversity and openmindedness, but the professors are great. Take Mr. Bechtold for math if you have the chance; he teaches really well. We definitely need to keep Mrs. Parker and Speech. She is a great teacher (take her for Shakespeare if you have the chance!) Also, take Mr. Nissen. He's an awesome science teacher.

I love their staff, but I feel they're having trouble with buget cuts. We need to keep Mrs. Parker and speech. Because of buget cuts their will need to be changes, we also need to keep the quality of the school.
