Rock Springs High School is a high school campus located in Rock Springs, Wyoming.

Campus[edit]

The Rock Springs High School campus is situated at Latitude: 41.591183 Longitude: -109.20701 within the City of Rock Springs, Wyoming. The school grounds consist of a football field with encompassing track and nearby open field, tennis courts, a student parking lot, a faculty parking lot, a front lawn, and one side access parking lot.[1] Students are allowed to use the front lawn to sit, however game play such as Frisbee is not allowed during school hours.

The school itself hosts a number of facilities besides the classrooms alone including a swimming pool, two gymnasiums, a weights room, a cafeteria, and an "Academic Learning Center," or "ALC." The ALC used to be the school library, however its main function has changed in recent years due to the large lab of over one-hundred iMac computers now housed within the room. The ALC was the testing site for the 2010 PAWS assessment (formerly WYCAS), however due to technical problems, it is likely 2010 will be the last year as well.[2]

School song[edit]

We're loyal to your Rock Springs High,
We're pulling for you Rock Springs High.
We'll back you to stand,
You're the best in the land,
For we know you have sand
Rock Springs High, Rah, Rah.

So pack up that ball Rock Springs High.
We're backing you all Rock springs High.
Our team is our fame protector,
On Boys, for we expect a
victory from you Rock Springs High.
Bring on that dear old flag of Orange and Black,
Go Tigers, Go, Go, Go, and never turn back.
Like men of old with armor, ever protecting,
never pretending,
Go Tigers, Go.

Amid the mighty hills that fortress our land,
For honest labor and for learning we stand.
And unto thee we pledge our hearts and hands,
Dear Alma Matre, Rock Springs High.
Yeah, Rock Springs![3]
