    "My overall experience has been a great one. I have been invoked in many activities throughout the years and would do it all over agin in a heart beat. This school is part of a small and tight knit community making it a highly supported school."

    "I have only been here for four weeks and that's all I need to know that I love this school. I came here because my dad was here and I wanted to live with him, as soon as I arrived everyone was so nice and helpful , the teachers are understanding and the kids are of all varieties, I've made so many friends that I am overwhelmed I love it here!"

    "I would not choose this school ever again if I had the chance to choose and do it over again. The main focus of the school is select parts of the athletic programs, specifically football and basketball. There is hardly emphasis on other activities and the budget is obviously not shared equally. Until this year when a new coach spoke out about the problem, the academic challenge team was not funded by the school. This meant coaches would have to volunteer their time to drive students to meets and students would have to pay for all of their meals. The teachers are not focused on seeing their students be successful and it is obvious that teachers who have students in the district will base favoritism in the classroom based on who their child likes or dislikes. This school does not offer any AP classes and does not offer physics or any other foreign language besides Spanish. This is the first year we have had a drama program, but there are no classes in the drama category and only one after school club that conflicts with many sports practice, leading to very few members. The biggest problem with this school is favoritism based on last names and athletic capability. Based on past experience, a varsity basketball player who meets minimum National Honor Society requirements will be selected over an overqualified student who does not participate in sports but participates in other academic activities. If I could do high school all over again, I would never step foot in this corrupt institution."

    "It is easy to schedule classes at this school. However, teachers do not talk to each other and there is often a test in 4 out of 7 classes in one day. The workload can get overwhelming, usually around the end of each semester. The curriculum is limited with no AP courses, only one foreign language class, and no physics class. There is after school tutoring available, but only for "Gear Up Wyoming" students. It is not offered to the majority who is not in Gear Up. Popular classes tend to include metal shop and auto-mechanics."
