Williston Public School District #1 is a Kindergarten-12th grade public school district servicing the majority of those living in Williston, ND. 

Celebrating Individuality

Part of the vision at Williston Public School District #1 is to celebrate the individuality of our students. All of our students have a required amount of core subjects taught to them every year from Kindergarten-12th Grade, but District #1 students are able to choose elective courses starting at 5th Grade at Bakken Elementary School. As they get older, they have more opportunities, with a bevy of elective courses available at Williston Middle School and Williston High School, including numerous Career and Technical Education courses in the CTE Building of WHS.

English Language Learners 

The goal of the English Learner (EL) Program is to develop each student's academic English to help them be successful in school. In order to qualify for EL services, a student's ability to speak English is influenced by another language. The student doesn't necessarily have to speak another language.

Special Education and Wilmac

Williston Public School District #1 partners with the Wilmac Special Education Unit to offer accommodation plans for all who qualify, whether it be a 504 Plan or an Individual Health Care Plan.
