Steele County is home to two phenomenal school districts encompassing each of the four cities in the county. Rural schools offer a lower student to teacher ratio, while still fulfilling all of the requirements of the public education system. Classes are offered to teach students vocational skills, which are in high demand in rural North Dakota communities.

Each of the communities in Steele County welcomes new residents. Housing information can be found on the city websites or by contacting any of the local real estate agents. Housing incentives are offered to new residents in Hope and Finley. More information on those incentives can be found on the city websites as well.

Please take the time to visit our community information and schools pages. These are excellent tools to assist you in learning more about the rural communities in Steele County.

This year’s 4-H Achievement Day, by far, has been our largest livestock show in fifteen to twenty years. Static exhibits were also up significantly, as there were over 115 exhibits inside the Hope Legion on Saturday. Our 4-H members and their leaders did a fantastic job, and we are extremely proud of the hard work and dedication they have towards the Steele County 4-H program.
