Good school, but lacks diversity. Lack of diversity leads to problems such as the mainly rich school with very little awareness for equal education.

Having gone to school in Telluride since kindergarten, I have eleven years of experience, and overall, it is very positive. Thanks to dozens of teachers, I have flourished academically, discovered the path I want to follow in the future, and of course, gain new knowledge.
Make it a better place for students to succeed by helping them rather than getting them in trouble for every mistake they make.
