Welcome to Sheridan County School District #1
Whether you’re a current member of the Sheridan One family or you are exploring schools for your children to attend, we’re glad you found us. We hope this website is helpful. If you have suggestions for improvements to our website, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
Our school district is located in NE Wyoming and includes the communities of Big Horn, Dayton, Ranchester, and Parkman, as well as the ranches and farm areas beneath the beautiful Big Horn Mountains. With seven schools and an online virtual academy, we strive to provide a top-notch education to all of our students, knowing that each student has a unique path to venture. Our district’s motto: Individual Success Through Education is what drives us. Our dedicated teachers and staff serve a population of just over 1,000 students.
This school year, our school board is working on creating a new vision statement and strategic plan that will guide our district for the next five years. I am pleased to be working alongside them as we prepare our students to be successful along whatever path they have mapped out for themselves.
Sheridan One operates on a four day school week, with enrichment and remediation programs offered throughout the year on select Fridays. Staff members work together one Friday a month for professional development, meeting with their cohorts from across the district to discuss educational strategies and best practices in education. We invite you to stop by and visit us any time and look forward to sharing what our district has to offer.
Finally, we are pleased to announce that this year, we were named the #1 School District in the state of Wyoming by SchoolDigger, an independent group that ranks districts across the nation based on state test scores. We have the #1 (Big Horn) and #10 (Tongue River) high schools in the state, the #11 (Tongue River) and #8 (Big Horn) middle schools, the #3 elementary (Big Horn), as well as Tongue River Elementary being named a Blue Ribbon School. It was an outstanding year for us, and I couldn’t be more proud of all of our school staff and administration. It takes a team approach, and we’ve got a great team.
Yours in Education,
