From the Principal's Desk
Welcome to Lander Valley High School, home of the green and white Tigers! LVHS is a school of excellence in the Fremont County #1 School District. Thanks for viewing our site. We hope that you take the opportunity in the near future to personally visit us in the beautiful Lander Valley of the Wind River Mountains.
The school year has already begun in grand fashion for us as the hard work of the staff and students last year allowed us to make Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) in all categories! Data from the Wyoming state assessment (PAWS) and our district MAP scores show improvement over last year's scores as well.
We are excited to welcome to campus three new staff members this fall. The administration searched long and hard in the surrounding region to add the most qualified staff to the Tiger team. This group of new hires brings an impressive resume to join with our already outstanding group of educators at LVHS. We are confident that our staff will take us to new heights of excellence in the years to come.
The LVHS staff and student body appreciate the continued support of our parents and community and look forward to their presence at our many school events. We want to share our many accomplishments with our Tiger supporters. There is no doubt that the 2010-11 Tigers are ready to earn their stripes and have their roar heard across the state!
With the efforts of inspired students, caring staff, trusting parents, and supportive community, our school will live this year by the motto "LVHS - when only the best will do" as we continue to move closer to our vision of being recognized as the best high school in the state of Wyoming!
