Island Park Charter School was founded in 2019 by Connie Day. With the help of the community and surrounding areas this lifelong dream for many residents was brought to fruition. Currently the school is offering education for Pre K through 3rd grade. Our school has multi-grade classrooms. Students of different ages are in class together. Multi-grade classrooms allow students to work with others of similar abilities. Rather than working at a frustration level too fast or too slow students are able to work at an appropriate instructional level that is not dependent on age or grade. In multi-grade classrooms, students learn from each other. They overhear what others are being taught, which allows them to be introduced to higher concepts before they are expected to master them. Older students become role models for younger students. A strong sense of community is built in the classroom, and life-long relationships are nurtured. Students develop a sense of belonging, caring for each other, respect, and true friendships across grade levels. This will be especially important to our students as they transition to higher grades in Ashton.

Henry’s Fork Wildlife Alliance (HFWA) formed in 2019. We are a group of people committed to protecting healthy wildlife populations in the Upper Henry’s Fork. We love the outdoors. We hunt, we fish, and many of us simply like to watch wildlife. We are residents and taxpayers of Island Park and Fremont County. We volunteer our time, support our local businesses and charities and are your neighbors. We care deeply about Island Park.
Some of our volunteer projects include partnering with Fish & Game on a pronghorn collaring study; helping with wetlands restoration at Henrys Lake; and removing a derelict woven wire and barbed wire fence no longer needed nor wanted by the property owner, which presented a barrier to migrating wildlife. We have supported projects of several local conservation organizations and have partnered with Fish and Game, US Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management and others on several projects
