“Midwest School will provide a safe and orderly environment conducive to learning so that all students have the opportunity to reach their goals.”
Midwest School offers a 4-day school week. We are the only school in the district with preschool through 12th grades under one roof. The student population comes from every corner of Natrona County. This unique setting gives Midwest School the reputation of being the “family school.” Bus transportation is available to and from Midwest at several locations within the district.
Midwest School offers a half-day preschool, a full-day kindergarten, and first through twelfth grades. The small population allows for a high level of teacher-student interaction. Individual student needs are accommodated through a Response to Intervention tiered approach for struggling readers, one on one and small group tutoring in math, placement in reading and math groups based on skill level, and a refocus room to help students learn appropriate behaviors and social skills. Our elementary curriculum includes a variety of Reading resources, My Math, FOSS science kits, and supplemental materials to enhance these programs.
Our secondary opportunities include Read 180 to support our Literacy First framework to deepen skills learned in the area of reading. Math 180 is an intervention to target students needing additional support with math. Services and tutoring are also available for our English Language Learners (ELL) whose second language is English.
Midwest offers all classes necessary to meet high school graduation and Hathaway Scholarship requirements. Students can also take advantage of advanced courses through distance learning and BOCES classes for dual credit opportunities. Breakfast and lunch are cooked on-site and served daily.
A variety of extra-curricular activities are offered at the elementary level on Focus Fridays. Clubs are determined each year based on student interest. Elementary clubs may include Jr. Lego Robotics, Spelling Bee, and Reading Club.
Secondary students may have the opportunity to participate in after school homework lab/study tables, Student Council, National Honor Society, Yearbook, Robotics, Band/Chorale, and school newspaper.
