Dubois K–12 School

Dubois School is the K–12 school that educates the Fremont County School District students. We have unique educational challenges that come from living in a small, isolated community. But our geographic location and small population encourage innovative methods of bring the world to our students, and we strive to help all learners reach their goals and their full potential.

While most of our teachers work as a department of one, they engage students in numerous authentic learning tasks to increase student background knowledge and address standards in a real-world context. 

A Message from our Principal

I am a firm believer in the power of the growth mindset, and as a staff, we approach each year with the belief that all our students are capable of learning and growth. What is growth mindset? Simply put, it is the belief that intelligence and ability are not fixed traits or that we are born with only so much of them. Rather, with effort and perseverance all students are capable of academic achievement and growth.

Here are some things you can do to extend and promote growth mindset in your home:

  • Encourage your child to take risks and tackle new challenges at school and home.
  • Praise your child not for the ease with which they learn a concept, but for the amount of effort put into learning it.
  • Emphasize perseverance and effort in activities.

I hope you will join us on this growth-mindset journey. Together we can ensure our students will achieve at high levels!

Below you will find a link to a very brief parent survey. Please take a minute and complete the survey. We value your input and use your suggestions to better serve our students.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving! 

Sincerely,

Dr. Brandon Farris
