Watershed School – Non-Profit Spotlight

Boulder Real Estate - School

At Spaces Real Estate, we love our Boulder Area Non Profits!  Our realtors are involved with many great organizations and one of our favorite core values is:

We Care – We do good while doing well. We are committed to the idea that business 
can and should be a vehicle for social change.”

This month we are featuring the wonderful Watershed School.  Top Spaces Real Estate agent Myriam Johnson is on the board at this innovative school in Boulder and tells this story about why she’s involved:

“We were lucky to find the Watershed School when our oldest daughter was ready to enter high school. When we saw how happy she was and how engaged she became in her education, it was a no-brainer to have our youngest daughter attend as well. Watershed’s approach to education is so innovative and cutting edge that it brings out the best in people who benefit from it. The results of an integrated approach of intense experiences and rigorous academics, are smart and  independent students who are well prepared for college. I am the proud mother of two Watershed graduates, and feel so lucky to be a member of the board of trustees. The school’s approach to education is an inspiration to the board and I am honored to serve and support such a meaningful and worthy organization.”

Here is some additional information from Watershed School’s website:

Watershed School is an independent school in Boulder, CO serving middle school and high school students. Its uncommon approach to education fosters academic excellence and upstanding character through an innovative, rigorous, and effective experiential college prep curriculum. Watershed Students engage in meaningful, exciting work. They learn to apply their education to the real world and have the opportunity to explore their community and learn from what is around them. They are given the opportunity to explore their interests and passions and to learn more about themselves as they approach adulthood.
The school design includes a challenging, engaging, and interdisciplinary curriculum that challenges students to know and care for themselves, their community, and their world. A Watershed School education is an exceptional preparation for college and life!

Watershed School is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, and if you would like to find out more information about its innovative, cutting edge education, visit: www.watershedschool.org or call 303.440.7520 to schedule a visit.
