Inspired by place, even from a distance.

Mountain Academy of Teton Science Schools provides a unique Preschool through Grade 12 education in the shadows of the mountains on either side of Teton Pass. Faculty on our two campuses – in Jackson, Wyoming and Teton Valley, Idaho – collaborate using a unified learning approach.

Our mission is to inspire curiosity, engagement and leadership through transformative place-based education.

Our dedicated faculty and staff remain grounded in place, and inspired by project-based learning.

You can read about our plans for 2020-21 in our Fall Operations Update from Head of School Dr. Michelle Heaton or our Pandemic Response Plan

The ability to learn how to critically think, work as a team, collaborate with people, and interact with stakeholders is something that's really critical in today's educational environment. We know that when we send our kids off to school, they're going to be loved, well taken care of, educated, and nurtured, and that makes us feel really comfortable as parents.
