We Belong


SSD believes that students must feel belonging, connection, and empowerment in a community in order to successfully grow socially, emotionally, and academically. This foundation enables powerful and deep learning for all students.

Welcome to Summit School District

Nestled over 9,500 ft. in the heart of the Colorado mountains, Summit School District provides excellence in public education to families in the diverse resort mountain communities of Breckenridge, Dillon, Frisco and Silverthorne. 

Committed to a strong academic foundation, we ensure that each student's journey of growth and discovery is enriched by supportive and collaborative learning communities. Our learning, rooted in the global International Baccalaureate curriculum framework is designed to inspire curiosity, foster critical thinking, and challenge students to reach heights they might not have thought possible on their journey to the Graduate Profile.    

The quality of our district and our schools extends far beyond the classroom walls, shaping the vitality of our community. A strong educational foundation doesn't just produce informed students; it nurtures responsible, engaged citizens ready to contribute positively to resilient communities. Our schools with their unwavering commitment to excellence, act as a catalyst, fostering growth, innovation, and a sense of belonging. With a vision aimed at shaping the future, we're dedicated to championing every student's potential, ensuring they're equipped not just to learn but to thrive.
