Telluride High School is an overall great school with great academic classes. Although it lacks in being strict with the students. It is in a small laid back town so the students get treated differently compared if they went to a school in the city. But it isn't always a bad thing, on account of having p.e during the winter the students have ski p.e which consist of them going on the mountain to ski two times a week, with an instructor. It is the best public school in Colorado and most the kids who attend the high school make it to college with the help of an amazing counselor.

I've been going to the Telluride School District Ever since October of my kindergarten year. Overall, it has been very positive. The Academics have been rigorous, yet enjoyable. So far, my favorite class has been Creative Writing. Through this class, I was able to discover the career I wish to follow: Screenwriting.
Everyone in the school honestly roots for your success especially the teachers. They not only guide you to help achieve your goals, but they also encourage you to set new goals and reach heights you didn't even know existed.
