Lacking in good communication between some staff and parents at times, but not too bad for a public school. Some teachers are really good though.

Hi, I only went to this high school for my junior year and I LOVED IT!! Moving to Wyoming from Pa was a big shocker for me, My class in Pa was 600 something and in lander 600 something was the entire school. The teacher's were wonderful, they treated you like a 'person' something I wasn't use to in Pa. I would have to say that my junior year at Lander Valley High School was my best high school year, Thank you.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Wyoming administered the Proficiency Assessments for Wyoming Students (PAWS) in reading 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.
