The Eagle County School District RE 50J covers 2,500 square miles of mountain terrain in the central Colorado Rockies. The District serves communities varying from the internationally known ski resorts of Vail and Beaver Creek to the small towns of Minturn, Red Cliff, Edwards, Eagle and Gypsum. The ECSD serves all of the county, excluding the Basalt area, with 6 elementary schools, 3 middle schools, 2 high schools and one charter school.
Currently the district is building another elementary school in Eagle, one is Gypsum, and also a middle school in Gypsum. All three of these new schools will open in the Fall of 2001.
Year-round residents believe that "Eagle County is not only a place to make a living; it's a place to make a life." They enjoy a family environment that gets a "Rocky Mountain High" from a close and caring community. While residents treasure life in a small community, they also enjoy the easy access to the outstanding culture and entertainment. Vail is host to the American Ski Classic, the Bolshoi Ballet Academy at Vail, and the AEI World Forum and productions at the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater and at the Vilar Center. Because of the natural beauty, clean water and air, the low crime rate and modern technology, Eagle County is one of the fastest growing regions in Colorado.
Residents take great pride in their dedication to outdoor recreational activities. They enjoy easy access to all of Colorado's internationally famous ski resorts. Eighty percent of the county is public land. Recreational opportunities include alpine and cross-country skiing, golfing, hiking, fishing, outstanding big game hunting, camping and rafting. Residents also take great pride in the area's cultural and ethnic diversity and rich Colorado history and folklore.
