We are a public, free charter school in Durango, Colorado. We offer a rigorous, personalized college preparatory curriculum that is engaging and meaningful. We deliver our curriculum through projects. That means that our students have the opportunity to apply their learning through relevant, real-world experiences. We have based our school off of a wildly popular and successful model from California called High Tech High. Together we are accomplishing great things!
