Summer CampsAbout Us

Teton Science Schools

Teton Science Schools (TSS) inspires curiosity, engagement and leadership through transformative place-based education. For nearly 15,000 learners per year, our place-based approach increases engagement, learning and community impact. TSS programs include classroom education, field education and educator development.

Our Approach to Education

We believe in learner-centered practices implemented by teachers who are lifelong learners in content and craft. Our approach is place-based, connecting learning with community. We define place as the ecological, cultural and economic aspects of a community.

Our Students

Students at Teton Science Schools are curious about the world around them and look for ways to engage and lead in their communities. TSS is committed to equity, striving for systems that enable access for underrepresented communities. As a core value, TSS embraces inclusion by welcoming people from every socioeconomic status, physical and learning ability, race, color, gender, sex, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status and religious background.

Transformative place-based education can only be achieved through a commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI). Our commitment to DEI makes learning more engaging, relevant, impactful and transferable. It also results in a more effective team of teachers and staff. Additionally, our efforts will make place-based education more accessible for teachers and learners.

I would not be here if it wasn't for my summer experience at Teton Science School. That is where I first saw myself as a scientist. TSS was the single most impactful experience in my life and is the reason why I am passionate about K-6 science education!
