From Watershed School

A progressive independent school in Boulder, CO, the Watershed School is committed to a program and school culture that inspires and educates students to become highly capable, healthy, wise, and engaged citizens prepared to take on the world’s great challenges. Our students engage in work that matters -- work that is important to the student and has a positive impact beyond the walls of the school. We believe schools should not just help students develop the skills and habits for future success, but should awaken their curiosity, expand their view of the world, and empower them to make a difference in their local, regional, and global communities.

We're excited to connect with you! Please visit our website to learn more about our program, or schedule a virtual or in-person visit.
