Why Filer School District?

Low Student to Teacher Ratio

A low student-to-teacher ratio means that your student has the potential for more one-on-one education and more interaction with their teachers during classes. Because Filer and Hollister are small communities, the student-to-teacher ratio in the Filer district averages in the mid-twenties.

Extracurricular Opportunities

There are plenty of opportunities for students to pursue their interests outside of the classroom. Extracurricular activities available through the Filer School District include sports, rodeo, music, art, home economics, and others!

Close-Knit Community

There are plenty of advantages to choosing a small town for your child’s schooling. One of the biggest is that you and your student get to enjoy a close-knit sense of community and connection both with other students and their families as well as with the teachers and administrators of the district.
