Our goal is to create a warm, open environment where students feel safe enough to ask questions, explore and seek answers. We challenge every student to do his or her own personal best and help them through their difficult times. 

We welcome all new students and their families as well as placement agency personnel.

Responsibility for ourselves

NW BOCES has been serving youth in the state of Wyoming since 1970.  We are proud of the over 50 Year of Service to students, parents, school districts, and the Department of Family Services. 

Personal best


At NW BOCES, we approach each child as an individual with their own talents and one-of-a-kind needs. Our goal is to help students transition back to the local school environment and a home environment.
