The quality of education was excellent, this showed primarily through the the variety of courses available to students at Steamboat Springs High School. The plethora of available sports, extracurricular activities, and clubs, insure that there is something for each student to get involved in, no matter their interests or passion. The staff however, truly make this a great school. I believe that teachers who genuinely care about a student's future is the key to a great education and SSHS definitely has them. I will always cherish the memories and friends that I made attending Steamboat Springs High School.

Steamboat Springs High School is so unique. Nearly everyone cares so much about their general well being, health, and professional success. This school definitely produced some high functioning, motivated and dedicated individuals; some have participated in every Winter Olympics since 2006. There can be some clicks that are very exclusive, but that’s every high school. The quality of the education was unmatchable- the size of the school allowed every kid to feel like they could get help if needed. The staff cares so much about their students, and their overall experience. I’m so grateful to have been able to grow up here and have such an amazing experience.
This high school is an awesome place to learn and be involved with the town! In addition to well structured classes at the high school, students can take classes at CMC with expenses paid. There are also amazing sport and athletic programs that keep students happy and fit!
