11/23/2013 - I'm just back from the NE Wyoming Honor Band and Choir concert in Gillette, WY and have to comment that the Riverton HS band director, Aric Hageman is fantastic!!! He was the guest conductor and had an amazing control and leadership of the band. I can't say enough about his talents. Their third tune was "The Witch and the Saint". Look it up on YouTube. It is a showpiece for a lot of reasons and sounded fabulous in the Gillette HS gym. Big positive slamming tympani, wonderful fluid melodies, soft sections, tight and sharp timing. Move to Riverton just so your kids can be in the HS band. Disclaimer: I don't live in Riverton and don't know anything else about the town.

Riverton High School has a great reading incentive club. Wolverine Readers Club lets students read on their own, and earn wonderful gifts. This is reading above the classroom assignments, I was just told yesterday that Tyler likes to read now. He was able to read what he wanted and gets rewarded for it. Great!!

I totally agree with the comments about the absolute lack of community support for the school system...and it is absolutely true about the horrible attitude that the parents have encouraged. I was born and raised in Riverton and graduated from this school and nothing has changed...but i blame the community and of course the laziness that plagues the community is evident in School District 25. If you want your child to get a good education live in Lander, they have way better schools and a much better loving, caring community attitude.

In a town where community support for the school and its programs is slim, RHS does its best to overcome the difficulty of stubborn students who's parents have raised them to rebel against school authorities. The teachers are somewhat competent, and the management is of the highest quality. No matter what, if the child is willing to seek guidance, there will always be someone here to push them in the right direction. However, they may have to look hard for that person. On the whole, however, I do not hesitate to recommend RHS.

Joanne Flanagan is the greatest principal ever and I loved having Lars Flanagan coach me at basketball. They are both amazing people.
