Star Valley offers the best of both worlds, as it offers vast stretches of undisturbed wild land as well as finely tuned public organizations and institutions including municipal parks, federal lands, governmental organizations, and educational institutions.
Schools in the rustic mountain community of Star Valley fall under the leadership of the Lincoln County School District #2, which covers roughly three-thousand square miles and two distinct communities.
The district serves grades K-12th and boasts an enrollment of over twenty-five hundred students across its finely tuned public institutions.
The goals of the LCSD #2 are to provide a first-class educations resulting in well-rounded students afforded with diverse learning opportunities and extra-curricular activities.
Each school within the district is fully accredited by the North Central Association as well as the State of Wyoming and meets rigorous standards while implementing attainable and challenging academic goals.
All schools in LCDS #2 have gone through the Quality Assurance Review, and comply with provisions set forth by the No Child Left Behind Act.
Test scores are used to measure school performance, and all schools are required to meet their targets in reading, writing, mathematics, and social science.
Education is such a primary goal for the state of Wyoming, in fact, that it is at times subsidized through merit scholarships affording students to continue their educational journeys by enrolling in either the University of Wyoming or one of many finely tuned Wyoming community colleges.
LCSD #2 spends roughly thirteen-thousand dollars per pupil on instruction, support, and mentorship services.
