Wyoming High School is a public high school located in Wyoming, Michigan and is part of the Wyoming Public Schools District in Kent County, Michigan. Wyoming High School was formed from the combination of Wyoming Park High School and Rogers High School

History[edit]

Wyoming Park High School and Rogers High School[edit]

Consolidation[edit]

In early 2012, in order to meet the shortfall left by declining enrollment and the risk of reducing academic and elective offerings and laying off several staff members, Superintendent Dr. Thomas Reeder proposed to the Wyoming Public Schools Board of Education that they consolidate the district, saving not only more than $1 million, but also thereby keeping current offerings intact. Through a community survey and meetings with students and parents alike, board members gathered vital information from both sides. At the March 12th, 2012 board meeting, the board voted 4-3 in favor of combining the high schools and re-branding the district.

Beginning in the fall of 2012, 7th - 9th grade will be held at Wyoming Park High School, renamed Wyoming Junior High. 10th - 12th grade will be at Rogers High School, renamed Wyoming High School. The students were able to select and vote on a district-wide mascot (The Wolves) and colors (deep purple and black, with a silver accent), which were later narrowed down to their respective choices by a small committee of students, teachers, and parents, and were then presented to and adopted by the board. A fight song was also later determined by the students.

Involving over a hundred students each year, The Theater Company has been noted on local television and other media sources for its high quality and groundbreaking performances. Jeremy Schnotala directs the Wyoming Theater Company. Mr. Schnotala created The Wyoming Park Theater Company in 1994; when Wyoming Park and Rogers High Schools merged the Theater Company merged as well.
