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.

I have had an amazing time at Telluride High School. The education has been invaluable, while constantly surrounded by amazing teachers and beautiful scenery. All of the faculty works with the environment to make the classes as interesting as possible while maintaining high academic standards. I would not trade my time at THS for anything else.
Great, engaging teachers, "diverse" but racially segregated, incredibly exclusive. Not a ton of resources either due to the small size of the town
