If you're wondering why the elementary school says "High School" above the front door, it is because this was originally the high school built in 1895. The building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. There is a lot of work put into keeping up the historic integrity of the building. This school holds kindergarten through third grade. The larger school at the entrance of town holds fourth through twelfth grades, which I will show you later this week. There are around 650 students in the Telluride public school system.
Most moms are relieved to send their kids back to school, but I always have mixed feelings. It is the end of our summer Jeeping, hiking and camping activities. I am happy that all three of my kids look forward to the new school year!
