Our School in the News

The founders recognized a need in the community for an alternative public middle school that focused on teacher-student interaction, collaboration, and problem-solving, while using technology for research and production, in a supportive environment. Mountain Middle School’s (MMS) charter was granted through the Charter School Institute, and it currently serves students in grades four through eight, from Durango and surrounding areas.

Mountain Middle School’s structure and programming is adapted from the highly successful High Tech High model, which emphasizes project-based learning. MMS has been well-received in the community, with increasing enrollment numbers each year and a waiting list for enrollment.
