Nestled in the heart of the beautiful Colorado Rocky Mountains, Summit School District provides excellence in public education to students in the diverse resort communities of Breckenridge, Dillon, Frisco and Silverthorne. Serving more than 3,500 students, it is our vision for Summit District students, staff and community members to work together in an atmosphere of care and respect to offer each student an array of educational programs designed to foster his/her unique academic, vocational, and personal Strengths. Our aim is to develop internationally minded people who help to create a better world. We believe in open communication with our stakeholders and appreciate community input. 

Involving our parents and community members in our schools supports our student's development. We encourage the Summit County community to be involved in our schools and offer their gifts and talents to our bright, young stars.


Our Mission
Summit School District creates a safe learning community in which each and every person belongs, grows and thrives.
