High School Future Search: Building A Bold Future | by Will Paradise, Board of Trustees President


will_paradise2015This fall we experienced the power of community coming together to invent a new future for Shining Mountain, first with the Future Search in Estes Park and then again with the Fall All School Community Meeting. All the work we accomplished on the five-year strategic plan is based upon these high impact meetings. In fact I would say that there is no way we could have accomplished this task without the foundation that the Future Search provided.

It is with this great success in mind that we are proud to announce the High School Future Search in which the SMHS community will come together to develop a powerful vision of the future of our high school.

The event will be kicked off with Future Search with the high school students. Michael Shaun Conaway, BOT Member and Andy Horning will lead students through a four hour Future Search process in an off campus retreat.

The student’s work will join the larger two-day Future Search with representatives of the Board of Trustees, Faculty, Staff and Parent Body.   Together we will create a strategy and vision for the future.   Our intension is to have Shining Mountain High School be known as the leading Waldorf School in program, facilities and faculty in the country.
