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

With summer quickly approaching, we begin to prepare for vacations, days in the sun, camping, and rest. It is also the time to start preparing your child for the next school year. I know, you are probably thinking summer has not even started and I am giving you a list of things to do for the next school year. Before you stop reading, most of these are fun activities. I promise! 

  1. Join Your Local Library: Our public library has great programs over the summer. Let your child pick books of interest to them. Reading is fun, and we want them to remember that. 
  2. Connect with School Friends: Connect with students from your child’s class over the summer. Set up a few play dates. That way the transition back to school will be easier.
  3. Prepare a New Work Area: Summer is the perfect time to design and decorate a homework area. We all need a place to focus and work. Spend time this summer painting a desk, picking out new pencil buckets, or selecting new shelves. Start the new school year with a fresh and organized workspace.
  4. Interview an Older Friend: Connect with a student who has just finished the grade your child will be starting. Invite them over for a snack and ask them about their favorite parts of the year and any suggestions they have. They will be a wealth of knowledge.
  5. Start a School Countdown: Frame the start of school as something positive, not as the end of all the fun. Enjoy summer, but help your child to anticipate the first day of school with excitement. Plan a few back-to-school activities (new clothes, a new backpack, or a classroom visit) in the weeks before school starts, and look ahead on the calendar to discuss them. Planning for this transition back to school will make the end of summer a smooth experience.

    Have a wonderful summer, enjoy your family time, enjoy those later evenings, the days at the pool, and vacations. I know we as a staff certainly will!

Our program focuses on the whole child, helping each child develop mentally, physically, emotionally, and intellectually. Building early literacy, language skills, and mathematics academic skills, social studies, and personal and social development. Throughout the year we focus on STEM—science, technology, engineering, and math projects.

    Unique Offerings

    Technology plays an important role at our schools, with laptop computers available for K–7 students and iPads issued to our 8–12 students. 

    Our abundant natural surroundings provide excellent outdoor labs for students, including simulated archaeology digs to study ancient civilizations, water testing through the Dubois-Crowheart Conservation District, and visits to ranches through Ag in the Classroom.
