ABOUT OUR SCHOOL

Meeteetse School is a comprehensive PreK-12 grade school with 110 students. Our school continually meets or exceeds state performance expectations and has an above average scoring on the ACT exam. We bolster a 95% rolling graduation rate and watch the majority of our graduates move on to college and university (100% in the past two years).

As a school, we are focussing on restoring creativity, critical thinking, and problem solving to our system. Our Friday’s consist of a half day of school where students at all grade levels work on genius projects, receive additional academic support, and have the opportunity to explore real-life learning such as: finances, auto care, fishing, horseback packing, dance, and more. Students have experienced state and national recognition for their work in the arts and sciences.

As a staff we have been reading Creative Confidence by Tom & David Kelley. As a part of our book study this year we are exploring empathy and problem solving while creating an “inherently optimistic way of looking at what’s possible.” We have been challenged to prepare our students for occupations that do not currently exist. To that end, we are currently defining the profile of a Meeteetse Learner within the scope of three areas: Seek, Solve, Serve (#SeekSolveServe). Because of our ongoing academic success we are able to focus on the needs of the whole child and provide consistent individualized instruction.

Our athletic teams (football, volleyball, basketball and track) provide our students with the opportunity to continue their overall learning through teamwork and cooperation. Over 95% of our secondary students are involved with an athletic team. We are currently exploring and defining what our philosophy of athletics is and will be moving forward.

The community of Meeteetse is very supportive of education and the work of our administration, teachers, staff, and especially our students. We have regular attendance at our monthly community meetings where we have invited the community to read Creative Confidence with us and explore the concepts that will make our students more successful. We are located 34 miles from Cody, Wyoming. There are many amazing things for individuals and families to do and explore in the Meeteetse area.
