“We feel so fortunate that our children are attending at Banded Peak School. There is a true sense of community at the school where values such as leadership, collaboration, integrity, and respect are paramount. Administration and staff clearly love what they do and are committed to ensuring each student achieves his/her full potential. Parents are engaged and encouraged to participate in the school community in a variety of ways including school council, assemblies, field trips, and volunteering in the classroom. Banded Peak School is located in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. Staff ensure that students are able to take full advantage of this unique opportunity to learn in and experience our natural setting through the outdoor education program and activities such as snow shoeing and cross country skiing. The school is committed to providing students with a rich fine arts experience with events such as Fine Arts Day which provides students with an opportunity to work with a number of talented artists each year. We are so grateful to have this “gem” in our community. Thank you Banded Peak School!"
"Tucked quietly away in the corner of a tranquil forest, you’ll find a true educational treasure – Banded Peak School. Most days, you don’t even need to step inside to see students buzzing with new knowledge – discovering, analyzing, exploring, and communicating information about themselves, their environment, and their world. But, if you do walk in, you’ll have the instant sense you simply…belong. Through that perspective, our children, with teachers and administrators reaching out along the way, have grown in ways we could only hope to imagine. What a far-reaching gift this school has given them."
