GREAT FALLS PUBLIC SCHOOLS

“All students engaged in learning today…for life tomorrow” is the vision of Great Falls Public Schools
(GFPS). GFPS is the 2nd largest school district in Montana. All 10,220 students are prepared through comprehensive PK-12 programming and extensive extra- and co-curricular offerings. With Malmstrom Air Force Base located within school district boundaries, GFPS works closely with military students and families as they transition to and from Malmstrom. The District focuses on engaging students to include emphases on attendance and customized learning opportunities. GFPS seeks to prepare students for college, career and citizenship.

Pre-Kindergarten through twelfth grade students are served in the Early Learning Family Center, 15 neighborhood elementary schools, two middle schools, two traditional high schools and an alternative high school. The District also provides life-long adult learning opportunities through its Adult Education program at the Great Falls College-MSU. Students are served by approximately 800 highly trained and qualified educators, many of whom have received state and national recognition.

GFPS is part of a community that supports enrichment and fine arts programs as exemplified by the GFPS Music Department being selected as one of the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) Foundation’s 2015 “Best Communities for Music Education.” The department is a five time winner of this prestigious award. The District is also proud of its competitive athletic programs and its Career and Technical Education programs.

GFPS seeks continuous improvement through the execution of a strategic plan. The focus is on “Our Kids, Our Community and Our Future” as it enhances student achievement, stewardship and accountability as well as healthy, safe and secure schools. GFPS enjoys strong partnerships with a variety of community organizations and businesses in its pursuit to accomplish these goals.
