Steamboat Springs Middle School named one of the 5 Schools to Watch in Colorado

Steamboat Schools got a great award today by being recognized as one of five Colorado Trailblazer Schools to Watch on Monday by the Colorado Association of Middle Level Education. Nationally about 300 schools are expected to recieve this distinction.

From the Steamboat Pilot: "Being named a school to watch makes the middle school a model for other schools across the country, Lauer said. She said a couple of aspects above the middle school stood out. If you compare Steamboat Springs to other schools, they have very high student achievement and they have very high growth,” Lauer said. “The teachers and staff at Steamboat are doing the work so students are achieving more and more every year. This is atypical of the state trend and national trend.”

She said that the school’s positive environment, its use of data to create programming, the resources it provides to students who need support or are excelling, and its strong leadership all contributed to its being named a school to watch."

We are very fortunate to have great schools in Steamboat Springs.  Great teachers and staff come here for our lifestyle, parents put a lot of time and effort into making the schools better and people look out for everyone else's kids in our tight knit community.
