    Hey there! Was a student at SHS for three years. Graduated in '09. The transition from a big-town high school (I was raised in Denver) to a small-town high school was a rough one. On top of this I was not terribly impressed by the maturity of my fellow peers and for a good part of my sophomore year I spent my time running cross country and otherwise focusing on my studies as my classmates weren't particularly appealing maturity wise. This being said I was also (and remain to be) impressed by the calibre of teachers at SHS. It was through good teachers that I finally got a foothold in the school culture and began to feel more at home. By the time my senior year rolled around I really felt comfortable in my school environment. Don't get me wrong there's a lot of stupidity at SHS. A lot of bigotry mild-mannered and racism is kind of the name of the game with a podunk high school in Wyoming. Sad but true. But I think this is given with any high school. Now that I work in high schools I'm definitely aware of this. Overall I did meet a lot of hard-working nice-mannered kids who -- just like me -- wanted to get through high school with a high GPA and go on to college.

    This school keeps on improving! Excellent band program with the most people admitted for All State Band than any other Wyoming school. Teachers are smart and laid back and I also recommend taking a language class. I have not yet seen extreme bullying and is enforced with appropriate actions. Best scores in state and has won many years in a row of State athletic teams. Go Broncs!

    This school is a joke. It is overpopulated and greatly lacking in good teachers and decent faculty. Bullying is rampant and ignored. Too many teachers and staff members are there only for the paycheck and not for the kids (not all there are a very few good ones). I will travel to another town before I put my remaining children in this high school.

    My kid is doing great in this school. (My other kid is not attending yet). There is plenty of individual attention for my child he does need some. He's smart but sometimes he needs a little extra help. The teachers are good at what they do and provide plenty of feedback to me.

    This school has excellent academics but there is no psychologist on staff. Counseling is done by teachers only. The main office does not answer the phone (it is an automated system) and calls are not returned. It is a wonderful school if your child is a high acheiver due to many AP opportunities and an excellent music program but if your child needs help it is lacking severely in assistance discipline and quality.

    Great academics and high level of academic opportunities!
