~South Routt Schools- Inspiring the Next Generation~

The South Routt School District is located in rural Northwest Colorado, nestled at the base of the Flat Top Wilderness. Our schools are located on two campuses. The Elementary and Preschool are located in the heart of Yampa, while our secondary campus sits atop the hill and overlooks the quaint town of Oak Creek.

Our mission is to develop career-connected, community-based, and academically prepared students in a safe environment.

We strive to be the best small school district in Colorado, meeting the academic, social-emotional, and future needs of our students.
