Glenwood Springs High School is an exceptionally successful school for students in grades 9 through 12. The school has won the Colorado Governor's Distinguished Improvement Award in two successive years, one of only 12 high schools to be recognized in 2012-2013. This is indicative of the academic strength of the school, as is the string of Scholars selected from GSHS in recent years, by the Boettcher committee. The intensity with which we pursue academic excellence, however, is matched by our commitment to building student character, promoting healthy physical activity and camaraderie through athletics, and in our passion for the arts. In partnership with parents and our mountain community our mission is to promote the education of our students in the fullest sense of the word.
