Fort Washakie High School [FWHS] is a small accredited Wyoming public school, located in Fort Washakie on the Wind River Indian Reservation. FWHS is the only high school in Fremont County School District #21. Most of our students are Native American.
In the spring of 2012 the State School Board approved unification for FCSD #21. We changed from a K-8 school district with a charter high school to a K-12 school district. Our high school has been operating out of modular buildings for the last ten years. Unification has allowed us to begin the planning phases for genuine high school facility, so that our students educational experiences will be more equitable to what most Wyoming public high schools can provide. Regardless of the challenges we face, as 11th graders the class of 2013 scored well above the state average on the 2012 PAWS test, giving FWHS one of the highest reading scores in the county.
In nine years of operation, thirty five students have earned their diplomas through FWCHS and FWHS. We are proud of our students’ accomplishments and have high expectations for their futures.
The State of Wyoming provides Hathaway Merit and Need Scholarships to Wyoming students attending the University of Wyoming and Wyoming community colleges. Every Wyoming student who meets the merit requirements can earn a Hathaway Merit Scholarship. FWHS provides courses that meet Merit Scholarship requirements.
