The school requires more credits then the state, teachers are not capable of helping their students to learn the new Core Curriculum, administration isn't proactive about releasing students do to weather conditions, Ag Classes are being phases out and money from the Ag students fundraising efforts aren't being used for their program, teachers aren't tolerant of the Ag Students and their travel schedule for the program when they are competing at a National Level and setting an excellent example for their school. I am very disappointed with how things are handled and the personal contact with the students and teachers.

The school and principal involvement is not so great. Not enough help is being provided to the students in the school with the subjects they have difficulties with.

I am the Marine Instructor with the Marine Corps JROTC at Sturgis Brown High School. I started teaching during the 2003-2004 school year. I moved my family from the Kansas City area to accept my current position. I had never even visited the state of South Dakota prior to my interview for my current position. I quickly realized that the Black Hills of South Dakota is a diamond in the rough. Sturgis is a typical small town and Sturgis Brown High School is a wonderful place to educate a young adult. The cadets of the Marine Corps JROTC program are some of the best students at Sturgis Brown High School. These kids really care! My perceptions of the other students at Sturgis Brown High School are quite positive. All in all, it's a real pleasure to be around and teach the leaders of tomorrow at Sturgis Brown High School.
