Aspen Middle School

Dedicated to Excellence

  • Aspen Middle School Mission Statement:

    We nourish the mind, body, and spirit to empower lifelong learners who contribute to making the world a better place.

    We achieve this through:

    ideasRigorous International Baccalaureate (IB) classes in eight subject areas. 

    exercise naturePhysical activity, wellness education, and time in nature.

    heartConnecting with our community, reflecting on one’s actions, and learning through service and outdoor education.

    *Our school mission is built on the foundation of the Aspen Ideal, a place where mind, body, and spirit flourish, in addition to supporting the Aspen School District mission, and embodying the International Baccalaureate mission.

    *We support the development of the IB learner profile attributes in students. These include balanced, caring, communicator, inquirer, knowledgeable, open-minded, principled, reflective, risk-taker, and thinker. In addition, the AMS students of 2022 voted to add “creative” to the learner profile.

    *We teach students “approaches to learning” in self-management, communication, social, research, and thinking skills through all of their classes and learning experiences.

    Aspen Middle School is a candidate school for the Middle Years Programme. This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy- a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education- that we believe is important for our students. Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme (DP), or the Career-related Programme (CP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted. For further information about the IB and its programmes visit http://www.ibo.org
