I came from New Mexico and Colorado and we have yet to find a better school. The teachers are fun, excellent campus, and bullying is NOT a problem at this school. This is the highest score ranking in Wyoming, so if you want an excellent Junior High education, go here!

Fantastic school with upbeat interested teachers. It's nice to have her in a school where the teachers are enthusiastic. We moved here from California 2 years ago and I was concerned that my daughter wouldn't fit in. But she has made some good friends, is happy in school, and is getting good grades.

This is THE BEST school , out standing teachers and staff, our son was in Montana schools and was a year behind when we came here, with the help of all his teachers he's not only caught up, but on the honor roll, SJHS is the best!!!!!!!!

So far I've been very happy with this school. My daughter excels in all of her classes, even if she doesn't like the teacher sometimes. The only complaint would be the food. The facilities are beautiful and up to date, and there is a wide variety of electives offered. I recommend this Junior High.

Sheridan Juinor High School is truly the best school my children have ever attended. Not only were they challenged academically, but they also were treated with respect and dignity. They are the number one junior high in the state due to the high quality of teachers, and their love for children.
