Coordinated support for powerful baseline ability. In the early days cowboy culture embraced rigorous physical labor. Today, the High Ground work ethic is instilled early in the goal-oriented, high-performing K-12 schools across the region, where students and faculty tackle their jobs of learning and teaching with purpose. Students graduate college-ready or immediately career-ready, through career tech tracks and dual enrollment.
Two-factor talent pipeline. The region’s comprehensive network of community colleges and four-year universities means that for high school graduates looking for a career start or adults seeking to upskill, honing abilities and gaining knowledge are always within easy reach. Here in the High Ground, we keep our focus on the horizon.
