About Us


Evanston is nestled in the foothills of the beautiful Uinta Mountains at an elevation of 6,794 feet above sea level. The community is located on the banks of the winding Bear River in the far southwest corner of Wyoming.

The growing city of approximately 12,000 people is the most southwesterly city in Wyoming. It is only three miles east of the Utah/Wyoming border and only an hour and a half away from Salt Lake City.

Residents say Evanston's location is ideal in that it combines the advantages of living in a big city with the atmosphere of a small town.

Precipitation averages 11.26 inches per year with a mean annual snowfall of 54.7 inches.

For more information about what Evanston has to offer, call the Evanston Chamber of Commerce at 789-0370.



The first public school opened on July 8, 1870 with eight pupils. Today's enrollment averages just under 3,000. Curriculum guides for each course, subject and grade level are continuously being developed and updated by a task force of teachers and administrators. Areas of emphasis are determined by the dictates of the community, students, teachers, administrators, and sound financial management.

The goals of achieving both educational excellence and a strong competitive co-curricular program of activities go hand in hand in the Evanston School Community. Evanston athletic teams are often contenders in State play-offs. During the past few years, several athletic teams have won State Championships. The Evanston School Community boasts award winning bands and choirs, drama groups, and speech and debate teams.
