The Town of West Yellowstone has homes for sale and for rent. The school system offers music, drama, art, and sports- as would be expected. The difference with a small school is if you want to be on the team or in the band or play, you can! Additionally, West Yellowstone school boasts one of the only school sponsored cross-country ski teams in Montana. There are world class groomed ski trails at the edge of town available to anyone (and used for training by the US and National Guard Nordic ski teams!) The Town also sponsors a model Summer Recreation program for younger children with introduction to T-Ball and Soccer, field trips to Yellowstone, arts and crafts, and more. Then there is Yellowstone Park in your backyard with an amazing variety of adventures to share with friends and family all year around- flyfishing, hiking, and geyser-gazing to snowmobiling, sledding and skiing. West Yellowstone is a small and friendly Town located at the west entrance of Yellowstone National Park only 90 miles from Bozeman, Montana and Montana State University to the north and 110 miles from Idaho Falls, Idaho.

There are definitely homes for sale between West Yellowstone and Idaho Falls, and there are places for rent either seasonally, by the week, month, or year round in West Yellowstone. The area you mention includes the popular resort area of Island Park which has plenty of places for rent, mostly seasonally, and homes for sale as well. In West Yellowstone, there are generally a dozen or more high quality family homes or resort properties available for sale at any one time. If you want more information about West Yellowstone properties you can contact me. Educationally, opportunties outside of the classroom would include not only the natural history of Yellowstone Basin, but wide opportunitues in Bozeman, an hour away. Bozeman is the regional center for symphony, opera, museums, great library, theatre, etc. The other direction...Idaho Falls also offers opportunities. Recent museum exhibits in Idaho Falls include the Dead Seas Scrolls. Although the numbers of students in area schools is smaller, with graduating Senior classes numbering in the 20's and 30's in some schools, the opportunity for excellent (& closely supervised) public education is great.
Thanks for your interst in one of the greatest areas of America.
