Barnes County North Schools

The Barnes County North School District was formed when three schools reorganized in the fall of 2007.  The three schools were:  North Central of Barnes, Spiritwood Public School and Wimbledon-Courtenay School.

We moved into our new school building in November of 2013 and our total enrollment is 300 PreK through 12th grade students. Our new school is located 2 miles west of Leal, ND on Highway #9


Midkota Schools

The Midkota School District serves the communities of Binford, Glenfield, Grace City, McHenry and Sutton and   Our district was formed as a result of declining enrollment, projected reductions in staff, programs and services, and cost/ineffectiveness in program/service delivery and facility usage in the early 1990’s in the Binford, Glenfield-Sutton-McHenry and Grace City schools.
