Rocky Mountain High School, or RMHS, is a public high school in Byron, Wyoming, United States. RMHS, which covers grades 9 through 12, is part of Big Horn County School District 1. RMHS serves the cities of Byron, Deaver, Cowley, and Frannie. The school mascot is the Grizzly Bear.
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 three schools were Byron High School, Cowley High School, and Deaver-Frannie High School.
Nearly seven years ago the state facilities commission announced that a new high school would be built. The school board voted that the new building will be in Cowley. The new school is under construction now and is scheduled to be finished before the 2010-2011 School year.
Rocky Mountain high school has different opportunities for students in their 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. There are many vocational classes for students to choose from: Woodworking, Welding, Foods, Home Economics, Auto Body, and Auto Mechanics are among some of the choices. There is also an active student council along with chapters of FCCLA, FBLA, and FFA.
RMHS is the home to a state champion dance, boys and girls basketball, girls cross country, and football teams.
