Heart Butte Public SchoolsHeart Butte Public Schools

The Montana Schools of Promise – School Improvement Grants Initiative is a partnership between schools, communities and the Office of Public Instruction to improve Montana’s most struggling schools. In communities across Montana, parents, families and caregivers share the hope that their children will graduate from high school and be prepared to go on to college or enter the workforce.

Heart Butte Public Schools is located on the Blackfeet Reservation and serves students Kindergarten through 12th grade in Heart Butte, MT. It is one of the oldest traditional communities on the reservation, with many of the citizens still living on the original allotments that were established in 1915. To the west of the school stands the mountain Moskitsipahpi-istuki (Heart Butte). Minnie Spotted-Wolf, who grew up in Heart Butte, was the first Native American woman to enlist in the US Marine Corps in 1943. After serving our country and earning headline titles like “Minnie, Pride of the Marines, Is a Bronc-Busting Indian Queen” she became a teacher and taught for 29 years.

Action Plan/Timeline


Each School Improvement Grant district was required to organize a team of staff, Heart Butte Warriorsadministration, school board members and students to develop a plan of improvement using designated funds. The plan design is used across all 50 states, but each team develops their own specific needs and how they will work toward an increase in student achievement and graduation. Heart Butte Schools is the final school funded through the School Improvement 1003(g) Grants.

Each identified district created a team of teachers, administrators, school board members, parents and students to create a District Action Plan (DAP). Based on the Federal Guidelines, teams analyzed data and created plans of improvement unique to their district and schools.
