Greybull Elementary School is a school in the midst of achieving excellence. The staff is young and young at heart, serving students in the rural Big Horn Basin. This rural tradition is rooted in deep farming and ranching traditions and the hard work of the early settlers transcends to the classrooms of GES. The students and staff have worked hard to achieve consistently improving test scores, accomplished through the implementation of classroom instructional strategies that consistently work, through the various responses to student-focused interventions, and through highly efficient staff development. The instructional strategies, the interventions, and the staff development all focus with laser-like intensity on the goals of the school: To improve academic achievement for all students, including closing any gaps; to ensure a safe and orderly environment, where students feel safe and learning can occur; and to increase stakeholder involvement. The cracks have been sealed, and all students, parents, families, and community members have been invited to sit at the the table of high expectations. This is Greybull Elementary School, home of the Mighty Buffaloes.

I can't help from thinking that the Greybull El. School ranks high because they have a fantastic phonetic and spelling program called VoWac. It starts in Pre- K [Early Beginnings] and runs through 3rd grade. Their Lang. Arts scores, I am sure, have sored since this program began. I believe most schools do not provide a 4 yr phonetic program which I feel is esential. I truly believe that the state should enforce such a program. Too often each room has their own program. There will be a new principal at this school next year. This is a school with very dedicated teachers.
