School Notes:

  • Telluride Mountain School, accredited by the Association of Colorado Independent Schools, was founded to provide a challenging academic program that combines college preparation with outdoor education and community service. From a starting enrollment of 6 in 1998, the school today serves over 100 day boys and girls in Preschool to Grade 12. A newly renovated 14,000 square-foot facility that houses all grades opened in 2006. The values-based curriculum is designed to develop well-rounded young citizens of a global society. The program begins with a Montessori preschool, phasing into a more traditional approach for the upper grades. The core curriculum centers on reading/writing and language arts, math, science and social studies, with technology used throughout the disciplines. Spanish, music, visual and dramatic arts, and physical education are also integral to the curriculum. A Winter Sports Program capitalizes on the school's setting in prime ski country and includes instruction for all ability and interest levels, from the recreational skier/snowboarder to the aspiring Olympic competitor. Experiential learning trips and community service expand learning beyond the classroom locally, regionally, nationally and internationally.
