Billings Public Schools strives to prepare our students for the future. Regardless of the pathway they choose, students are engaged in educational and extra-curricular opportunities that support their individual growth towards career, college, and citizenship readiness. Curricular programs emphasize four fundamental growth areas that are essential for student growth:
BPS supports students’ futures with comprehensive K-12 programs that prepare students for both rigorous college readiness and career technical workforce skills. Programs and courses emphasize deep learning through focus on critical concepts and essential skills.
Financial Literacy and Professional Skills
Whether workforce or college bound after high school, students enrolled in BPS have opportunities to learn how to navigate their financial needs and career prospects by developing their skills to obtain and maintain solid work experience. Students also learn how to match their career choices to their financial needs and the quality life they desire.
Civics, Humanities, and Community
Students learn that they are part of a local community that supports their public education and are able to give back through school supported clubs, student organizations, and community service. BPS partners with local business and service providers to allow students to be visible and active members of the larger community.
Innovation and Creativity
Opportunities for music, art, drama, STEM, and literature support students to become the next generation of innovators and critical thinkers. Students grow in their analytic and logical skills in order to create solutions to 21st Century problems.
