Telluride School District Ranks 9th In State, Tops In Colorado Rockies, Top 500 In Nation

Telluride received news this week from the editors of U.S. News and World Reports’ annual school rankings that the Telluride High School is ranked in the top 10 best schools in the State of Colorado and in the top 500 schools in the United States out of almost 29,000 schools analyzed by the magazine. U.S. News and World Report teamed with a non-profit global social science research firm RTI International to determine the results. The rankings included Public, Charter, Magnet and Stem schools.

The Telluride School District has consistently rated in the top 10 schools in the state of Colorado and among the top schools in America for several years. Having lived here since 1993, and with my wife and I serving on various school and after-school committees and non-profits, I believe it is the result of several factors including strong leadership at the District, passionate and creative teachers with long-standing careers at the District, involved and informed parents advocating for their children and an array of offerings of Advanced Placement classes, among many factors. Details below for Telluride specifically and for all 50 states:

In speaking with the principal of the Telluride Intermediate School last night, he estimates as of now, prior to the 2018 ranking announcement, about 20 families are inquiring about relocating to Telluride and placing their kids in the Telluride Intermediate School for 2018-2019. That does not include the Telluride Elementary School, Middle School or High School. At the same time, some families are moving out of the district for various reasons including international travel and job relocations. Please call me with any questions.
