Rocky Mountain High School

Rocky Mountain High School (RMHS) is a public high school in Cowley, Wyoming, United States. It covers grades 9 through 12, and is part of Big Horn County School District 1. RMHS serves the cities of Byron, Cowley, Deaver, and Frannie. The school mascot is the Grizzly Bear. Since 2010, Rocky Mountain High School and Rocky Mountain Middle School have been in the same building.

History[edit]

In the fall of 2010 students moved into a new high school-middle school facility on the southeast side of Cowley. The school features state-of-the-art technology, a large commons area and two gymnasiums.

The school building that used to house RMHS was completed in 1956 to house the Byron High School. At that time only students from Byron attended the school. A typical graduating class from BHS had about 20 to 25 students. In 1983 it was decided to consolidate the three high schools in the north end of Big Horn County into one school. These were Byron High School, Cowley High School, and Deaver-Frannie High School.

Academics[edit]

Rocky Mountain High School offers a multitude of opportunities for students through elective classes and extracurricular activities. There is an active music department with both a concert choir and concert band. The art department includes art classes and an art club. Vocational classes include woodworking, welding, foods, home economics and small engine repair. There is also an active Student Council along with chapters of FCCLA, FBLA, and FFA.[citation needed]

Athletics[edit]

RMHS offers sporting opportunities in football, volleyball, cross-country, basketball, wrestling, track, and cheerleading.[2]

RMHS is the home to a state champion dance, boys' and girls' basketball, girls' cross-country, football and volleyball teams.[citation needed].[3]
