History

Blue Mountain School was founded as a parent cooperative in 1981 by families seeking alternatives to public education. The school remained a cooperative, run by the Parent Council, until 2009, when BMS parents voted to change the organizational structure of the school to reflect the evolving needs of school families and the wider Floyd community. Since that time, BMS has been run by a Director, who manages the daily operations of the school, and a Board of Trustees, which has responsibility for the long-term health of the school.

Throughout our history, there has been a respect for family, community, and nature as great teachers, colleagues, and partners. By integrating academics, play, art, music, and life skills presented in nurturing contexts, students have found the resources they need to become caring, conscious, effective citizens in our rapidly evolving world.
