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

The Internet can be a wonderful resource for families and children. They can use it to research information for school reports, communicate with their child’s school and teachers, play interactive games, and chat with friends. Experts recommend that families should establish rules for Internet use. Here are some suggestions: 

  • Keep computers in high-traffic areas like the family room or kitchen, not in bedrooms. Children ages nine and under should not surf the web alone. 
  • Older children need to have clear rules about using the Internet alone. Tell children you need to know where they are going online and what they are doing. 
  • Keep track of the files your children download, join them when they are in private chat areas, and ask often who they are chatting with on the internet. 
  • Put time limits on the computer. Children need to allow time for physical activity, homework, and friends too. 
  • Tell children never to trade personal photographs or personal information over the Internet. 
  • Tell children that violating the family Internet rules will result in lost privileges to go online and enforce the rules.

By talking to children about potential online dangers and monitoring their computer use, parents can help their children use the Internet safely.

Preschool

Our pre-K program runs Monday through Thursday from 8:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. This is a free program that focuses on kindergarten readiness learning. We use the "We Can! Early Childhood Curriculum."

We have a "best practice" environment, using learning centers and work areas, with whole group, small group, and one to one teaching. 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. 

Please join us at 414 Meckem St, Dubois. It is open (at no cost to you) to any child who resides in FCSD#2 and is four years old on or before September 15, 2016. We do not provide transportation for this program.

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.
