About North Routt Community Charter School

We are a small rural PreK-8th grade public charter school. We seek to challenge young lives to explore beyond four walls through expeditions and outdoor discovery. To accomplish this, we strive to educate every child with outdoor education and wellness (OEW), inculcating strong character traits, and using projects that bring together the investigation of important science and humanities topics with the world that surrounds our students.
