Blue Mountain opened in August 2008. The school is located in the heart of the Meadow Mountain subdivision in south-west Longmont, but its attendance boundaries extend to the west and south to include several additional subdivisions. The name was selected to represent a geographical connection to a mountain in the Front Range as well as a combination of the names of the streets that connect the school to the community at large. The school’s mascot, the Lynx, represents an endangered animal that has been reintroduced into the Colorado high country.
