Teton Science Schools, a national leader in place-based education, leads our Northern Rockies hub, which is centered around meaningful rural place-based education. TSS has campuses in Jackson, Wyoming and Victor, Idaho, and also serves schools throughout the country with its outreach and educator professional development programs.



The partnership and work of the Northern Rockies hub site centers on Teton Science Schools’ new Place Network Schools (PNTSS) program, a collaborative network of K-12 schools that focus on connecting rural schools and communities through place-based education. The long-term vision for PNTSS is a scalable, rural school K-12 model that centers on student-centered place-based education across all curriculum areas. To better connect the schools, TSS will be developing a digital network for rural school collaboration. RSC will be assisting the PNTSS program in the establishment of Place Network Schools in each hub.

“It takes thoughtful organizations, imaginative students, and innovative teachers to come together to launch projects that enhance student learning, engage the community, and have important public outcomes.” says RSC executive director Gary Funk. “Our new collaboration with Teton Science Schools will allow us to leverage our respective partners to do just that. We are looking forward to expanding meaningful place-based education throughout rural regions.”
