Welcome to Cowboy Country, where excellence becomes a way of life!
The clothing, equipment, and work of the cowboy have romanticized the depiction of the singular cowboy in the saddle against a landscape of brush and hills—a lone and rugged individual. Yet, real cowboys displayed true grit through cooperation in that they moved thousands of herds of cattle all with the help of other cowhands and horses.
This same true grit can be seen in Wyoming with the genuine cooperation between community and school. All stakeholders—supportive parents, dynamic students, and passionate staff—work to ensure a brand of excellence, which is why Wyoming High School consistently ranks among the top public high schools in the nation. We continue to strive and grow in the ever-changing educational landscape, developing innovative students who are prepared for the future.
Just as the rugged cowboy is rich with history, so too is Wyoming High School as evidenced by our traditions and successes in academics, celebrated fine art performances, and victories in athletics. We strive to fulfill our mission to provide each student with a comprehensive program that enriches the whole child, which is spurred by our staff's expertise and students' commitment. Roy Rogers once said, “It’s the way you ride the trail that counts,” and our "life on the range" is a testament to our girt and attitude.
You are welcome to visit and be part of the Wyoming tradition: we cannot hide our Cowboy pride.
