MMS Vision Statement

MMS Mission Statement
Within a supportive and safe culture, Mountain Middle School integrates technology and project-based learning into a rigorous liberal arts curriculum that prepares students to succeed in the 21st Century as self-motivated, innovative thinkers who seek to resolve challenges collaboratively.
We are a public, free charter school in Durango, Colorado. We offer a rigorous, personalized curriculum that is engaging and meaningful. We deliver our curriculum through projects. That means that our students have the opportunity to apply their learning through relevant, real-world experiences. We have based our school off of a wildly popular and successful model from San Diego called High Tech High/High Tech Middle (www.hightechhigh.org). Thanks for visiting our website and please feel free to drop by our school. Together we are accomplishing great things.
The 8th Grade Humanities Exhibition Mock Trial of Kit Carson was a glowing success. Soon to come on video, the gripping trial and surprising verdict! The students' project made news in Kit Carson County as their persuasive letters and responses from the county commissioners provoked local interest in the project. Click here to read the article.
