Welcome to

Bismarck School District

On behalf of the Board of Education, faculty, and staff, we invite you to visit us and discover the many advantages offered by our district.  We provide the opportunities of a large school within a smaller school environment.  Our students have access to some of the best educators and programs in Arkansas.  We focus on creating personal and academic success for each child, because we recognize that we are not only creating learners, but our future leaders.  Our accomplishments are significant, and they did not happen by chance.  They are the result of dedicated individuals who care deeply about the well-being of each and every individual and who are committed to excellence.  Our district is an extension of our wonderful community.  Through our work as a collaborative community, our students will develop the knowledge, skills, and confidence to achieve at a high level.
