Hi. I'm Ginger. I have a 3 yr old named Fern and we are moving to Casper from Guam in 6 weeks! I'm trying to figure out (from 10,000 miles away) where we should live, which would be most likely dependent on where we want Fern to go to school. She is in a Montessori program here on Guam. I know there is a Montessori option there, but what about the public schools? Does anybody have their child enrolled in the montessori program there and what do you think of it?  Is there one public school in particular that may be better than others?  Are there any other alternative education choices that I am unable to find on the internet?   My husband will be working in Douglas, and we are assuming that we will want to live in Casper but we really have NO idea. We have never been to this part of Wyoming and have no idea what it is like.  We will be coming to look at house in about 6 weeks and would love any input. We are super excited about the outdoor recreation possibilities. I love the idea of living backed up against the woods, but would also enjoy living near the action and be able to bike/walk to the farmers market, etc. We have been living in the tropics for the past 8 years and will likely freeze but are super excited about our new adventure. Thanks for all and any help!

Hi Ginger...there are a few casper mamas on the Wyoming for Birth Options facebook page.  You may have better luck asking there :)

Hi,  My daughter is enrolled in the Montessori.  I like it, but really don't have any basis for comparison.  I'm not really "in the know" on any public schools as I will not send my children to them.  I've heard Poison spider is a nice rural school and have heard good things about it. 

 

Good Luck in Casper!
