I do not find administrators (with the exception of Mr. Chuck Kern) to be helpful, particularly the school guidance counselors. They seem very unwilling to help students in a timely manner and don’t listen. I also think that the support for anything other than sports is lackluster. Many kids in the music department have worked at mastering their craft since they were six years old. Parents spending hundreds of dollars per month on lessons, buying new instruments, the time students spend learning, etc... More support is needed! Laramie is #1 in the state for music, they deserve new uniforms, they deserve a new tuba, a new viola.. Support the arts!

As with anything, we will find both good and bad lumped into what seems to be a whole. Overall, growing up in this school district was beneficial, and one thing was certain: the teachers cared about their students. Of course, there were a couple “bad eggs” but overall, most disagreements stemmed from lack of conjugation with teaching patterns and ways of learning—it can be easy to carry negativity to a teachers name when they were not able to teach in a way that appealed to your learning nature. It wasn’t until I was older, however, that I realized I never saw a teacher give up on a student: consistently jumping to a teaching opportunity and outsourcing to fellow teachers and peers in order to improve.
I spent 3 great years here, the teachers are phenomena, encouraging me in every way to be the best me I could be, both academically and socially. I am happy to see as a graduate from there how much the school has grown in the last six years and that one of my best former teachers is now the principal!
