About Us

Harrisburg, South Dakota is located just off Interstate 29 in the southeast corner of the state, nearing the borders of Minnesota and Iowa, approximately four hours from Minneapolis and three hours from Omaha.

The Harrisburg School District, consisting of the entirety of Harrisburg and a portion of southern Sioux Falls, is a family-friendly community with a variety of housing options for all income levels in safe, welcoming neighborhoods. As the community grows, new neighborhoods, parks, businesses, and recreational areas are continuously emerging.

Small-Town Living, Big City Access

Our District's location makes access to entertainment, dining, recreation, healthcare and other activities easy and convenient for our staff and residents.

Our Schools

The Harrisburg School District serves approximately 5,900 students over 76 square miles between southern Sioux Falls and Harrisburg, South Dakota. Our District is the fastest-growing in the State and shows no signs of slowing down! Since 2001, our District has grown 651%!

We currently have one high school, two middle schools, and seven elementary schools. In November 2021 we broke ground on a new middle school and a new Freshman Academy, both to be completed in the Fall of 2023. A bond passed in 2022 will allow for a new elementary school to be completed in the Fall of 2024.
