The professors are knowledgeable and approachable, and do their best for every student they can. There are some hiccups administratively, and some professors are more open and communicable than others.

I have never seen so many unique individuals. Before moving to Durango I was a typical teenage girl who liked boys and obsessed over looking good and being popular. After coming to this school I have come to realize that life is better when you have more experience. Since high school I have gotten a job at a rafting company and a train station. I love living in a tourist town and being a part of a family's good experience.
