Picture of Aspen High School

Aspen High School

From its rugged beginnings in silver mining, the rural mountain town of Aspen, Colorado has evolved into an internationally famous year-round resort known for its intellectual, cultural, and recreational opportunities. The Aspen High School community reflects the town’s diversity of interests and embraces the vision of Walter Paepcke, the leader of the postwar Aspen Renaissance, who emphasized the importance of nurturing the “mind, body, and spirit.”

Our staff, through close collaboration with our students, models habits of mind and body that stimulate our students to challenge themselves to pursue lives of integrity and relevance. A large percentage of our students participate in service and special interest clubs, compete in team and individual sports, and work in the community.

Our academic program endeavors to inspire students to become lifelong learners. Courses are designed to produce resilient, independent, and critical thinkers. International Baccalaureate, Experiential Education, English Language Learning, Special Education, and Vocational Education courses support our standard curriculum to meet the needs of all our students and ensure the opportunity for a rich and purposeful education.
