Meet the Superintendent

headshot of Heather Hoyer

As the new superintendent and a longtime member of this district and community, it is my pleasure to extend a warm welcome to you. I am excited and humbled to lead this incredible district, following the hard and dedicated work of previous superintendents. Great Falls is a diverse community enriched by a rich Native American culture, a proud military affiliation, and values rooted in hard work and family. I am proud of the work we do for our community.

I come from a family of Montana educators and believe deeply that the work we do for our youth changes lives and communities. My father is a retired rural Montana elementary educator and coach, and my grandmother was a school cook. My husband is a secondary business teacher, and together we raised two wonderful daughters, both of whom are high school educators. Education is what we do and who we are. I am a proud Western Montana College Bulldog and University of Montana Grizzly!

At Great Falls Public Schools, we are dedicated to providing an exceptional education. Our teachers and staff are committed to nurturing the potential of every student, guiding them toward success in their academic and personal endeavors. We offer a range of programs, including Fine Arts and Career and Technical Education (CTE) designed to empower students to explore their passions and prepare for meaningful futures.

In 2024-2025, we are focusing on several key goals to enhance our educational environment. We are committed to fostering student academic growth, reinforcing the belief that all students can learn and acknowledge that this is positively impacted when strong foundational skills are established in early elementary grades. We are also focusing on behavior and attendance, ensuring they support, rather than inhibit, learning. Our Character Strong program continues to be a highlight in the work we do to prepare students for learning in and out of school.  Additionally, we are developing a comprehensive communication plan to keep our community informed, engaged, and active in our schools.

Thank you for visiting our website. We invite you to explore and learn more about the wonderful opportunities we offer at Great Falls Public Schools and in the Great Falls community.  Whether you are new to Great Falls or have been a part of our community for generations, we welcome you to join us in fostering a spirit of hard work and learning. 

Welcome to Great Falls Public Schools!  Come learn with us.
