At Jackson Hole High School, we are dedicated to helping ALL students reach their full potential in education and life experience. We strive to provide the highest quality of learning to prepare students for the rigors of a university setting. We advise students to consider the Hathaway Scholarship requirements and standards when selecting coursework.

We also recognize that while college is a great opportunity for future growth, there are many paths that best fit students. The school counseling department works hard to provide as personalized an approach to career and college research and selection as possible.
