When I attended Koch Elementary Mr. Walken and Mr. Aderhold were princpals, in Jr. High it was Mr. (I just forgot his name), then Mr. Smart, in high school it was Mr. Bergan. I can say that I appreciated all of my princpals and teachers that I had in Milbank Schools. Most were excellent. I now see that South Dakota Teachers are amongst the poorest paid..... so I know that they are dedicated and love what they do.
Milbank High School is progressive, yet traditional. It strives to offer a wide variety of courses at varying levels. There are courses for college-bound students, including AP classes in house and web-based. A variety of vocational courses are also available. Several graduates turn these classes into a vocation, choosing to further their training in near-by vocational schools. All students are treated fairly and efficiently by a caring staff, headed by the principal, a former graduate of this school.
