Great preparation for college no diversity , but the teachers are very caring and pay attention to their students. They have small class sizes for a personal experience. Most sports have little funding, so the team or school spirit. Crested Butte Community School has high academic standers for their students, many students take multiple challenging classes and multiple AP classes.

GHS prepares its students academically for college, but lacks in time management training. With lax due dates and forgiveness policies. These policies fail to prepare students for the strict deadlines of college. Sports and clubs were less abundant than many other high schools in the country but other individual programs were offered to make up for the lack of clubs. They provide an excellent outdoor education course, that should be noted as a positive towards the entire school.
Gunnison High School is a place the feels very safe. Because it is a smaller school it is very easy to communicate with your teachers and get involved in school activities. One thing that i dislike about attending this school is that sports aren't taken very seriously and it is very hard to excel in them.
