Head of School Welcome

Welcome to the Jackson Hole Community School!

Jackson Hole Community School (JHCS) was founded in 2004 by a group of talented and dedicated educators that believed in developing a dynamic, inspiring and personal institution for learning. This tradition continues today and students at JHCS thrive within a supportive and rigorous academic environment. Students are empowered to pursue their passions and delve deeply into the questions that matter most.  Our approach fosters a sense of commitment, open-mindedness, and civic engagement.  At JHCS, we recognize that learning is not limited to the schoolhouse and our students and teachers embrace leadership opportunities, community service projects, and experiential learning to further the ways in which we responsibly interact with our community. We are a learning community where the free exchange of ideas, diversity of thought, and creativity are not just accepted but strongly encouraged. 

Integrity and respect are foundational principles of all that we do at JHCS.  I am so thankful to be a part of this amazing school and serve alongside a faculty that is truly dedicated to lifelong learning and the highest ideals of teaching. All of our students are known, cared for and respected.  We look forward to sharing with you the many aspects of our school that make us truly unique.  


Warm regards,


Manish N. Bhatt
