About Telluride Mountain School

Telluride Mountain School is a truly unique independent school nestled in the San Juan mountains
serving students Pre-K through 12th. At Telluride Mountain School, we understand that success isn't just measured by grades in the
classroom. We challenge our students to explore their environment and seek out meaningful experiences outside of
the library--which is why you will often find us on the ski slopes, hiking the San Juans or exploring the world
through our experiential education trips. We also recognize the importance of making strong relationships with
teachers and peers, and encourage our students to build lasting relationships that strengthen their sense of
community. So while academics are important here, we believe in a holistic approach to education--one that involves
fostering creativity, curiosity and meaningful connections.
