Crested Butte Community School Reviews
Crested Butte Community had about everything one could expect from the only school in town. There were very few sports and after school programs, but this issue was mostly due to a lack of students to fill those spots. With a world class custodial staff, the school was incredibly safe and clean. The teachers were brilliant; all of them worked tirelessly to be friends to all and foster a convivial and efficient environment for students to learn. Even the less interpersonal teachers had great passion to educate. Students tested extremely well on standardized tests, so from an academic standpoint, all were prepared for college. With an insular approach to "the real world," students learned very few life skills, and options beyond a four year college immediately following graduation were rarely discussed. Outside of an at times narrow-minded approach to education, faculty from top to bottom worked to make Crested Butte Community School a US News gold medal winner year after year.
It's a good school with committed teachers who help you succeed. However, growing up with the exact same kids and always being with them, means I was heavily bullied and rejected.
There's no school like Crested Butte Community School. It is small and therefore able to be quirky. The students work hard and challenge themselves and one another. The teachers are supportive and encouraging of their students. Students there are driven and focused but we still know how to have fun! (There is an incredible athletics program and a student council that hosts fun, creative, community-building activities.)
