Welcome to Telluride School District R-1

Mike Gass

Thank you for visiting Telluride Schools.  We are gearing up for another great school year.  2017-2018, without a doubt, proved to be a banner year for our schools in the valley.  We support a 5-star rated Dual Immersion preschool as a true foundation to our K-12 system.  Our Pre-K through 12th grade program is loaded with high quality professionals from around the globe speaking both English and Spanish to honor the cultures and languages we share through our programming. 

Students attending Telluride schools have the honor of attending one of the best school systems in the state, if not the country.  TSD continually shines when stacked up against some of the most innovative programs across the country.  We administered over 270 Advanced Placement tests in our High School last year, our arts programs have national qualifiers, and our Knowledge Bowl teams are always state level contenders.   Telluride schools foster the physical spirit as well.  We have a large array of varsity and junior varsity teams that are often highly competitive in their respective conferences. 

We partner with many different outside organizations to allow students to experience life outside of the box canyon.  We currently have eighteen students in the Pintern program through the Pinhead Institute. Many are traveling the United States working alongside some of the best and brightest in their professional fields.  Rotary Exchange is always popular with many of our juniors traveling abroad to experience cultures and locations that open their minds for life beyond Telluride.

All of these experiences feed into our growth mindset for students.  We are striving for growth for all students.   We are also studying our school culture and safety of students as it relates to social issues such as cell phones, substances, and making good choices for a healthy lifestyle.  We enjoy our work and continue to look for improvement in every domain.  Have a great school year!
