West Grand School District is a small, rural school system of 434 students in grades kindergarten through 12. We are located approximately 100 miles northwest of Denver, nestled in a quiet valley of the Rocky Mountains between Steamboat Springs and Silverthorne. Historically, our economy was based on ranching, logging and mining. More recently, our economy has diversified and has been strengthened by the creation of governmental agencies, tourism and service providers who have chosen Kremmling as their home. The schools are the heart of the community and the district is constantly searching for ways to better serve the needs of the parents, children and community. Kremmling is home to nearly 1,500 citizens who live in a close-knit and caring community. Residents enjoy a low crime rate, a full range of medical and social services, and look to the schools as their community center.
Our school district hosts a K-8 building built in 2008 and high school housing grades 9-12. The Kremmling Preschool is also located within the K-8 building, making a smooth transition for children to kindergarten. The West Grand High School recently received the John Irvin Award for Academic Achievement and the Governor’s Distinguished Improvement Award. The Board of Education strives to keep a 14:1 class size. Our school district is financially sound even through the decreasing state funding.
