High Schools in the Aspen Area: Beacons of Hope for Public Education

It’s no secret that America’s public education system is going through a period of accelerated change, reform, and even struggle. Across the country, school districts are delicately trying to walk the line between increasingly tight budgets and rising state and federal requirements for excellent test scores and teacher accountability. While schools in other American cities and suburbs have greeted these changes and requirements with resistance and even teachers’ union strikes, many high schools in the Aspen area have instead embraced change as an opportunity.

In particular, the Aspen School District has managed to rise to the top of Colorado’s public high schools in terms of its scores on Colorado’s state-mandated standardized testing. The school district, which has always been one of the stronger performers throughout the state of Colorado, has managed to best other high schools in the state by a significant margin.
