Thinking of coming to school in Garretson?

In the Garretson School District, we do our best to welcome new students and families into the fold. We like to think about ourselves as a community that has retained the very best characteristics of small town South Dakota while being just a stone's throw away from the state's largest city.

Small class sizes, plenty of opportunities in co-curricular activities that range from sports to music to one of the State's most decorated FFA programs, and a caring staff make the Garretson School District a great place to go to school.

If you're interested in open enrolling, or if you've just moved to town, we look forward to getting to know you and showing you what our district has to offer.

The first step includes a little paperwork. If you do not live in the district, you will need to open enroll. There is a link to the appropriate form on the left. If you are a resident student, please download the registration form and return it to us via email ( or drop it by the office so that we can get the records transfer process started. As always, feel free to give us a call if you have questions at (605) 594-3451.
