An awesome school district. I am going to graduate this year and I have been in this district since 1st grade. From elementary, all the way to my senior year, the community, administration, teachers and coaches were a constant support in my growth and education. Wyoming puts a lot of money into their schools and the activities. A great place to go to school and grow up!

Sheridan High School is a wonderful school with an amazing academic program! They have countless extracurricular activities and so many sports. We are one of the top schools in Wyoming and have been holding up to it for years. There is plenty of opportunity for extra help when needed. They have great school counsellors, and a wonderful guidance program to help students plan for their future.
I have been rather pleased with their ability to offer a wide variety of elective classes in order to better satisfy the students' career interests. Also, I personally have had very good experience with my counselor any time I have needed to go there as she is extremely supportive and very understanding. The sports and extra curricular activities are exceptional. Students put forth unbelievable amounts of effort into these things, backed by their coaches and leaders who train them to be the best. The workload per class varies but usually has different average for each subject. Most of the teachers and staff are great to work around, there are a few odd balls here and there but nothing a student can't handle. Student cliques are widely diverse and anyone new that arrives on campus is quickly able to suit themselves into one or many of the divided groups.
