Inspiration is in our nature
Connecting Schools and Communities
Teton Science Schools serves current and aspiring educators through a range of professional development opportunities. From an afternoon workshop to our year-long graduate program, our programs are designed to support the development of educators wherever they are in their place-based journey. Our programs are a combination of educational theory, practical applications, innovative leadership strategies, and mentorship.
Whether you take a course with us in the field or online, you will be guided by a passionate place-based educator invested in your professional growth. Because when learning is connected to place, we believe it leads to deeper understanding and the type of experiences that can change your world.

Our Impact with Educators
“The Teton Science Schools experience gave teachers not only knowledge and skills, but more importantly, the confidence to adopt place-based learning as a fundamental approach to their teaching practice and a growing aspect of our overall campus culture.”

At Your School or Location
We partner with schools to provide consulting to faculty and staff in your school.
