Telluride Mountain School develops intellectual skills as well as self-esteem, social consciousness and commitment to the community. Twice-weekly Morning Meetings, the frequent review of the school’s Core Values and daily classroom experiences offer opportunities to discuss, teach and model values such as kindness, honesty and respect for oneself and others.
The school maintains standards of behavior that are every bit as high, rigorous and important to our mission as its academic standards. Mountain School students learn that there are rich and wonderful rewards that come from membership in a community of caring faculty, involved parents and a peer group of motivated students. Students learn that personal conduct can reflect proudly upon the school community.
