Colorado Rocky Mountain School:
The Colorado Rocky Mountain School (CRMS) is a co-educational college preparatory boarding school for students in Grades 9-12, located near Aspen Colorado in the heart of the beautiful Rocky Mountains on a 350-acre working ranch.
Co-ed Boarding School Programs for 9-12th Graders:
A college-preparatory curriculum within a program of the arts, athletics, physical work, service to the community, and enriching wilderness experience. At CRMS, we graduate students who have a strong sense of self-worth and a lifelong passion for learning. Our students are expected to pursue a challenging course of study across our curriculum.
The English department concerns itself with the essentials of college preparation: reading comprehension, vocabulary building, and analytical writing. Courses in English offer varied experiences in reading and writing exercises, with an overall goal of the students' complete engagement with the texts.
At the same time, values are taught through literature, and students are provided with a background and skill level that colleges expect. Students in humanities classes change teachers at the semester.
The History department emphasizes the thematic approach to the study of history. We see history not solely as a continuum of time but as a continuum of competing and complementary values and ideologies.
We also pay special attention to the role of place and environment in hedermining historical narratives, so that history is seen as a confluence of both human motivation and environmental contingencies.
The goals of the Math department are to provide students with the tools to be logical thinkers and to help them gain a solid foundation in problem solving. The department aims to help students become more confident in their mathematical abilities as well as appreciate how the math they are studying relates to the world around them.
Emphasis is placed on both the mastery of mathematical operations and an understanding of the underlying reasoning of the operations themselves.
The focus of the Modern Language Department is twofold: to teach students to use the language they study and to broaden their understanding of cultures around them.
To this end, students are exposed not only to the grammatical structure of the language, but to the literary and cultural aspects of the language as well. In class, students practice their skills in a variety of formats: listening, speaking, reading, and writing.
The Science Department emphasizes experiential investigation of the natural world. Students explore the nature of scientific inquiry and examine the function of models in scientific understanding.
CRMS students use scientific methods to investigate and verify fundamental principles. They utilize computers, library resources, electronic probes, and mathematics to evaluate, quantify, and present their research.
