In my opinion, this school is terrible. I attended from Jr High all the way through High school, and it was all in all a terrible experience. The school took on a 'college prep' atmosphere which is ridiculous considering our demographics. The industrial arts program is severely lacking, as are other vocational classes. There are very few extracurricular activities offered, and only 3 sports. There is very little funding for any programs other than sports. A bunch of us girls tried to get a dance team going and were planning on funding ourselves through the help of our families and our own earnings. The principal vetoed it.

About the tests


In 2011-2012 Wyoming administered the Proficiency Assessments for Wyoming Students (PAWS) in reading, writing and math to students in grades 3 through 8 and 11, and in science in grades 4, 8 and 11. PAWS tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Wyoming. The goal is for all students score at or above the proficient level.
