Telluride Middle/High School
Located at the entrance to the town of Telluride on 10.8 acres, the Telluride Middle and High School campus site was opened in November, 1995. In 2005, the Intermediate School and the 600 person capacity Palm Theatre were constructed. The remote glacial valley in the San Juan Mountains of southwestern Colorado presents a spectacular backdrop to our educational program. Telluride High School has a strong college-preparatory academic focus balanced with a 21st century, hands-on experiential education that reflects the interests, involvement, and profile of Telluride's community.
