BHM Schools: The Place to Dream, Believe and Achieve

Buffalo-Hanover-Montrose Schools unite the communities of Buffalo, Hanover, Montrose and the surrounding townships in Minnesota. Here, students dream, believe and achieve in their unique talents. Ten schools serve over 5,700 students in a district known for its high academic standards, exceptional learning and extracurricular options, and caring teachers and staff. Annually, BHM students score significantly higher than state averages in reading and math. 2016 marked the second time in a row that BHM Schools ranked in the top 30 for large organizations as a "Top Workplace" by the Star Tribune. Feel free to contact any one of our schools for more specific information or contact the BHM Communications Office for more information about the district.
