Fort Washakie High School

Fort Washakie High School (FWHS) is a small accredited Wyoming public school, located in Fort Washakie on the Wind River Indian Reservation. It is the only high school in Fremont County School District #21. With a large Native American population, personal and school pride is strong among our Eagles.

Our History

In the spring of 2012, the state school board approved unification for FCSD #21. Our K–8 school district with a charter high school became 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 a genuine high school facility that will allow our students a more equitable experience as that of most Wyoming public high schools. 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 FW Charter School and FW High School. We are proud of our students’ accomplishments and have high expectations for their futures.

Sports & Activities

We believe that participation in sports and extracurricular activities strengthens the mind and body, develops leadership skills, and teaches critical social skills. See what we offer at FWHS.

  • Athletics
  • Basketball
  • Cross Country
  • Track & Field

To participate in Wyoming High School Sports, we require an annual sports physical and a medical release per season for the Wyoming High School Activities Association.

If students have the desire to participate in sports we don’t offer at FWHS, we may make agreements with surrounding schools, pending student and guardian agreement and administrator approval at both schools.
