HARLEM PUBLIC SCHOOLS DISTRICT

Home of the Wildcats

HARLEM SCHOOL DISTRICT #12-HOME OF THE WILDCATS is located in Harlem, Montana. Our little town is located north of the Little Rockies and adjacent to the Fort Belknap Reservation in the Milk River Valley. The Fort Belknap Reservation is the homeland of two Native American tribes: the Gros Ventre and Assiniboine. We embrace the diversity of each tribe and recognize their unique culture and language differences. We offer Assiniboine and Gros Ventre classes and a variety of cultural experiences throughout the district.

HARLEM IS A K-12 DISTRICT WITH TWO SEPARATE SCHOOLS. Our Elementary School, under Principal Doug Komrosky and Assistant Principal Janet Jorgensen, serves students in grades K-6. Our Junior/Senior High School serves students in grades 7-12 under Principal John Salois and Assistant Principal Doug Komrosky.

WE HAVE A VERY ACTIVE TITLE VII PROGRAM, under the direction of Julie Lamebull, that has created some exceptional curriculum materials that are available to all our staff as well as others across the state. Our school is at the forefront of Montana’s “Indian Education for All” mandate.

THE HARLEM DISTRICT WAS AWARDED A 21ST CENTURY GRANT that provides support services for students and enhances the diversity of our student population. Some of the many activities offered through the program include Reading Club, Beading, Dance Troupe, Quilting, Crafts for seasonal projects, Family Literacy and Math nights as well as a wellness component that allows participation in a variety of physical activities. These programs are under the guidance of Julie Lamebull and Evelyn Bigby.
