PURSUING EDUCATION IN GUNNISON CRESTED BUTTE
ROOM TO ROAM. ROOM TO GROW.
The Gunnison Valley has extensive educational opportunities to choose from, highlighted by Western Colorado University and a top-rated public school district. The Gunnison Valley only has a population of about 16,000 people total. However, the learning opportunities for individuals of all ages rival larger cities in caliber and outright win in terms of intimacy and accessibility. Average educational attainment of our citizens in this Valley is far higher than the state average.
From the Gunnison Observatory and Western State Colorado University in the south end of the Valley to the Rocky Mountain Biological Laboratory and the Adaptive Sports Center in the north end, opportunities for educational experiences here in the Gunnison Valley are one of our greatest assets.
