About the Bruneau - Grand View School District On April 8, 1957, Albert Black, a school board member, offered to provide the school district enough ground for the Bruneau Elementary School. The current elementary school in Bruneau was built on Albert Black’s donated land in 1958. The elementary in Grand View was also built in 1958 and was very similar in design to the facility in Bruneau. The present school was built on the same ground the former elementary school was built on. In 1973 a bond was passed to build the present Rimrock Jr./Sr. High School on a 40-acre site midway between Grand View and Bruneau. Rimrock opened in 1976.

The Bruneau-Grand View Joint School District #365 now serves roughly 300 students from Elmore & Owhyee county. Though our student population is small, we’re one of the largest geographic districts in the state at 5,725 square miles. The parents of our students support our ranching & agricultural-based economy; many are working in the industry in some form. Our largest company-based employers include Simplot, Idaho Power, BLM and the school district.

In the last 5 years, BGV has worked hard to re-define itself with a strong, deliberate focus on the culture and climate of our schools. This has led to a dedicated staff and significant gains in student achievement throughout our District, which we will continue to improve upon in the coming years.
