The education needs of the City of Billings are served by three school districts: Billings Public Schools, District 3, and Elder Grove School District. Billings Public Schools consists of 22 elementary schools, 4 middle schools, and 3 high schools (Senior High, Skyview High, and West High).

Elder Grove School District also consists of only one elementary school, that being Elder Grove Elementary.
Billings has a semi-arid climate with hot summers, and cold, dry winters. In the summer, the temperature can rise to over 100 °F (1 to 3 times per year) while the winter can bring temperatures below zero, with 17 to 18 such nights per year. The snowfall averages about 57 inches a year, but because of warm Chinook winds that pass through the region between December and March, the snow does not usually accumulate heavily or remain on the ground for long. The first freeze of the season on average arrives by October 4 and the last is May 7. Spring and autumn in Billings are usually mild, but brief. Winds, while strong at times, are considered light compared with the rest of Montana and the Rocky Mountain front.
