Rural US school has just one student, one teacher

Rural US school has just one student, one teacher

A rural area in the western United States has a very unusual school. The school, in the state of Wyoming, has just one student and only one teacher. İt is called Notch Peak Elementary. The only student is Corinne Gaby. Her teacher is Lisa Geary. Corrine has no brothers or sisters and lives with her parents on a large ranch in a mountainous area.

The school is based on the idea that every child in the U.S. has the right to a public education – no matter where that child lives. But no schools existed in the area where Corinne’s family moved. The closest public school is at least a one-and-a-half hour drive away. And that road is not considered safely passable during the winter.

Her parents also decided that teaching her themselves at home was not realistic. So when Corinne was old enough to start kindergarten, local education officials decided to create Notch Peak Elementary just for her.

A new, separate school was not built. Instead, a classroom area was created on the second floor of a horse barn. Large windows keep the room bright, and a wood stove provides heat.
