The Grand County Community: Grand County and Moab, Utah, are located in one of the most beautiful and remote corners of the lower 48 states. 230 miles from Salt Lake City and 110 miles from Grand Junction, Colorado, residents find that they need to be self-sufficient in many ways while enjoying the small-town lifestyle the area has to offer. Moab (pop. 5,253) is the only incorporated city in Grand County (pop. 9,516). Moab, often referred to as “the Heart of Canyonlands”, is the only city in Utah located on the Colorado River. Visitors to the area are offered an incredible display of natural beauty from its adjacent National and State Parks and Forests and public lands. Abundant outdoor recreational opportunities include biking, four-wheeling, rafting and hiking. The former ranching, mining and milling economy of the early and mid-1900's has transitioned to a tourism, service and government sector economy. As a result, Grand County experiences higher unemployment rates and attendant social issues than most of Utah. Not coincidentally, many in the community are also very engaged in seeking solutions to these problems. Moab is reputed to have more nonprofit organizations than any other community in America per capita. Recent public investments with strong public support has brought the following to the community - two new public schools (HMK Elementary and the Technical Science and Arts Center on the High School Campus, (2010), a new regional hospital and extended care center (2011) and the Moab City Aquatic Center (2011). Public highway and bridge improvements and a vigorous bicycle lane construction program have been ongoing for several years.

Our Vision: Whole child, whole school, whole community. We challenge students to become healthy, compassionate, and resourceful individuals. We provide a safe and engaging environment that promotes lifelong learning. Every student will attain a purposeful future.
