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
Welcome to Dubois Schools in beautiful Wyoming! Our goal is to ensure all students achieve at high levels to meet our vision of a community of enthusiastic, responsible learners. Right from the start, our staff engaged in conversation about service for our students. Prior to the start of school, we affirmed our beliefs and values about a safe, positive climate that supports rigorous learning. Our end game is to guarantee our high school diploma so that students have an easy entrance into their post high school study or career and are confident and secure in their future plans.
We believe that you play a critical role in the success of our students. Parents, guardians, and family members are the best first teachers and know their child better than anyone else. I invite these key people to work in partnership with the classroom teacher and the school. Parent, guardian, and teacher perspectives, working in a close partnership, create the perfect context to support, troubleshoot, and cheer on the success of each student. As a parent or guardian, I encourage you to ask questions, problem solve, and continue to support your student in the challenge of new learning.
On behalf of every staff member at Dubois School, welcome to another year of fantastic learning opportunities. Thank you in advance for support, involvement, and cooperation. Working together, we are confident that our school community and the greater Dubois family will have a positive educational experience. Please refer to Dr. Kim Ibach's website more information.
All the best,
Dr. Kim Ibach

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.

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.
