Peak to Peak is a really great school that provided incredible guidance through my four years, and especially during the college application process of senior year. I loved my time here! The school spirit could be better, but it's definitely improved over the years, and the social scene is characterized by competition and can feel clique-y at times. Overall, the amazing education and general experience I had at Peak to Peak far outweigh the things that I would change. Go Pumas!

I love that we start college prep (Naviance) in middle school so that by high school, we already have a general idea of the college search process. In high school, there are tons of elective classes available for those who enjoy art, music, technology, and those who are passionate about math and science can double up on those courses in place of an elective. There are numerous clubs to participate in- I enjoy being a part of Allies (an LGBTQ+ club), National Honors Society, National Art Honors Society, and Interact Club (part of Rotary). Although we don't have a football or swim team, we do take pride in our soccer and tennis teams who go to state and sometimes national matches almost every year. It's going to be hard to let go of a place that I've attended for 13 years, but since then it's improved so much and will just keep getting better for the future classes.
There is no school spirit whatsoever but they train you to be ready for college. This is an extremely small school, there's probably like 600 students only. This school is very rigorous and has way too much homework. I recommend someone to come to this school if they are prepared on how much you need to try but I feel like it is worth it. This school was also ranked #96 of the hardest schools in America according to the Washington Post. The food is decent, we got dominos either on Friday or Monday every week. The gossip in our school is just about grades so it's not really a regular high school. We also don't have a football team. Some sports get all the funding and some don't get any at all. A lot of other kids that don't go to this school make fun of it but I'm half proud to say that I go to the best school in Colorado.
