The school is amazing it only four years old in it new building; and it still has the great teachers who would work with the kids after school to help them. Though with the new security measures help us fell safer than the old school. Although, the one draw be is it has windows EVERY WHERE! The school has great at sports exception of the football team. We won the state sweep championship for award in 18-19 school year. The clubs have competed regional, State , national championships. Upmost are education Kelly Walsh is top-notch we are always been in the top 5 in Wyoming for act and national standards as well one of the best graduating rates. With this recognition and many of our students are attending top-tier colleges.

Kelly Walsh High School has been an awesome high school experience. Natrona County School District is a school of choice system, so I got to tour each high school and pick the one I liked the best. KWHS was welcoming and the students were so helpful when I was touring and got lost! I remembered to return the favor to others when seeing young kids checking out our school! KWHS is all about acceptance of others no matter what you look like, if you have disabilities or not, who you love, etc. The only thing I would suggest to change is to have more activities to bring students together and enhance school spirit!
My high school experience has been decent. However, I won't look back and say,"Man, those were the best years of my life!" but it really has not been bad at all. I received pretty good grades and truly did not have much homework to do ever, so that was nice. The people/ other students are the reason my rating is 4 stars opposed to 5. They were just kind of mean and super immature, which I get it, they're high schoolers and practically kids still, but I'm just excited to hopefully be able to move on to a more mature college crowd and get to sort of start fresh and experience new things!
