Since I started researching Wyoming to help my parent's move there, seeing school ratings and hearing about positive community support for school activities is just... it's really nice to see.

Best of luck with the job search!
Government teachers are overpaid and underworked.

At the end of the school year many high schools will have online pictures of the graduates with pictures and a synopsis of their future plans. Take a look. Then ask yourself if you would wish your children to attend a school where the ultimate dream is attending a state university? Sure, there are a select few who go on to top schools, but it's only a few.

That still sounds better than the schooling that I received. My freshman class of over 900 students turned into a senior class of less than 200. Attending the local community college that could only offer a 2 year degree at best, was more than what most of my peers expected to do. And there was absolutely no tangible community support for school events. The only people you'd find at football games were those directly related to the players or responsible for transportation of the team.

Just purely on academic ratings, I haven't found any schools in Wyoming with as low of a rating as the schools that I attended growing up. I think I would prefer overpaid, under-worked teachers to underpaid, overworked ones, because that kind of stress really affects the learning environment. Overall, I think the school system sounds more positive, on average, in Wyoming, than my experiences here in California.

But, then again, what do I know? I don't have any first hand experience with Wyoming either, so I can only compare metrics and hearsay.
