About this school

Rivendell School is the oldest, secular school in Fort Collins. Founded in 1976, it has a rich tradition of individualized education. Student are very successful after leaving and love to return after graduation to visit teachers and see facility updates. The most recent project is creating a natural area on the expansive playground. This involves removing asphalt and creating a variety of areas to spark the imaginations of children at play. There is very little turnover among faculty.
