In a welcoming community, on a spectacular mountain campus, children are challenged and inspired by talented teachers. The mountain ideal of vitality in mind, body, and spirit is at the heart of the program, which balances rigorous academics, creative arts, and outdoor adventure. Children become critical thinkers ready for a lifetime of learning, and a rich arts program fuels creativity. On twice-yearly outdoor expeditions starting in Kindergarten, children become campers, bikers, hikers, skiers, climbers, and paddlers. They grow up with a strong sense of place and a wholesome sense of self.
Confidence, resilience, and joy in learning
The academic choice of the Roaring Fork Valley, Aspen Country Day School teachers build a personal connection with each student. That's intentional, because research shows that relational trust is a powerful fuel for learning. Children feel known, loved, and eager to come to school. They become critical thinkers who know how to investigate, research, read, and think for themselves.

Aspen Country Day School Reviews
Another problem is the obvious favoritism in the teachers. I noticed that the students who have been here since Pre K got privileges from teachers and it was tiring to see and feel constantly excluded.
The academics are good. The Spanish department is very solid (however the head teacher has retired) and I left with very solid spanish skills. However, the school prides itself on things like their physics and chemistry classes, which were high stress and did not prepare me for future highschool classes (1/2)
