There's so many oppurtunitys for sports and extracurricular activities. The teachers are all very good. With Laramie being a college town there are so many oppurtunities to take LCCC classes and AP classes to gain college credits while in high school and the school pays for some of the classes at the college for students interested.Many of our coaches competed at the University of Wyoming and know so much. However, we lack school spirit and culture not very many kids go out for sports such as football and wrestling and not very many people get hyped up for games. This may be because many kids are "1 sport athletes" this is the only downfall of Albany County School District one. Everything else is absolutley amazing we have amazing facilities, Coaches, teachers and academic oppurtunities.

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!
Albany County School District No. 1 has provided me with many resources that have been fundamental to my education. I have done a majority of my schooling under this district and have been provided with a multitude of educational opportunities. I have also gained a commitment to our community. On top of this, I have gained chances to learn from some of the best educators from around the state. Overall, I have had a great experience with Albany County School District No. 1.
