Approximately 28% of our students include minority populations:

  • 14% Native American

Our Focus

  • We are focused on working together to improve our performance in all Lander schools.
  • We are looking to the future to find opportunities to narrow our focus and make meaningful gains in student performance.
  • We are committed to working with the parents of all students and community members to reach our goals.
  • We have an increasing willingness to ask the hard questions, accept honest answers, and work to address our shortcomings.

Student Performance

Our district values diverse learners and uses varied methods of gathering evidence of learning, and the FCSD #1 teachers and administrators provide relevant and timely feedback to all stakeholders in order to support achievement efforts.

Students in Lander public schools generally perform above national and state averages in the areas of high school graduation, ACT test scores, and nationally and state-referenced reading and math assessments, including the Wyoming Test of Proficiency and Progress (WY-TOPP). The WY-TOPP is a system of interim, modular on-demand, and summative assessments in English language arts, writing, mathematics, and science.
