Jeffrey City School
Jeffrey City School is a small K-5 rural school located in the small community of Jeffrey City, which lies 60 miles outside of Lander. We currently have 6 students and one teacher at the school.
Historically, Jeffrey City was a much larger school during the 1970s and 1980s, when the town thrived from uranium mining in the region. As mining interests moved on, the town's population declined steeply to today's level. Today, about 55 people leave in the community.

Today, students at Jeffrey City have a dedicated state 10mbit Internet connection for Internet access, as well as a full videoconferencing system that allows them to receive instruction from specials teachers – such as art, music, and library – at Gannett Peak Elementary.
