Principal's Message

It is with great pleasure and anticipation to welcome students and parents back to school this year.  The staff at Pagosa Springs High School is looking forward to getting back to a more normal school year.  Unfortunately we were not able to do so many of the things that make the high school experience special last year.  We are ready to bring back the culture building and fun activities that help each student feel connected to school.  

This spring, we rolled up our sleeves and began to look at how the learning experience could look different for the students at PSHS.  This year, we are committed to begin finding opportunities in all of our classes to create more real-world, relevant learning activities.  That, paired with best instructional practices will help us to work towards our mission of preparing for success by continuously improving.  

We have also been working to expand and strengthen our CTE opportunities for our students.  We are excited to be adding a Game Design class to our computer science pathway.  Also, we are ready to begin utilizing the newly built grow dome to offer an expanded horticulture/plant science program.  These new offerings, along with the other career and technical education offerings at PSHS, are examples of our commitment to helping each and every student make progress towards their postsecondary goals.

We look forward to strengthening our partnership with you throughout this school year to help your student become successful and work towards determining a plan for their next step after graduation.

With warmest regards,


Sean O’Donnell
