Watershed School is an uncommon school that fosters academic excellence and upstanding character through an innovative, rigorous, and effective experiential college prep curriculum. Our students experience adventure and wonder as they learn by doing and engage in complex, in-depth and abstract thoughts in written, oral and artistic forms.
Watershed School is proud to host two national conferences on educational innovation in June 2015. These events, which will draw educators from across the country to Boulder, reflects Watershed’s emerging status as a thought leader and nationally recognized innovator.
On June 7-9, Watershed will host Traverse. This event is geared towards teachers and teacher-leaders, with a focus on making schools more like real-life. Watershed is collaborating with the Wonder, by Design educational collaborative, the CWRA+ national assessment, and the nationally recognized Catlin Gabel School to design this hands-on experience. We’ll hear from nationally recognized speakers, share ideas in salon discussions, and go off campus to experience hands-on ways of learning first-hand.

From June 22-25, Watershed will co-host the Trailblazer Conference, a conference geared toward school leaders with an emphasis on leading innovation in schools. A collaboration between Watershed and Leadership+Design, a 501c3 nonprofit that works to create a new culture of school leadership, the Trailblazer Conference will bring school leaders from across the country to Watershed’s campus for four days. We’ll discuss the challenges of innovation, meet with guest innovators from the Boulder community, study creative problem-solving, and work on the interpersonal and interpersonal challenges of leading change.
