As a staff, we are committed to developing a rigorous learning environment that fosters relationships
while encouraging students to reach their goals and beyond.

Vail Team teachers have high expectations for academic achievement.

Our instruction is based on Jeffco and Colorado State Standards as well as Common Core. We plan active, "hands on" lessons as part of our instructional strategies, which help make learning fun!  Students will be given opportunities to extend their learning through activities and projects.
