My child was a student at Ensley for 2 years. I will honestly admit that this school is the reason I decided to move to Jeffco. Overall, I am not knocking the Public schools because I had 2 other kids that were thriving valedictorians) at their respective schools. But at Ensley, there is no discipline in the school whatsoever, even in the hallways. The teachers are uncaring and nonchalant. The principal is as well. The environment was not condusive to learning. The teachers and staff overall were not supportive and encouraging to the students. To me they all had the 'they'll never amount to anything' attitude toward the students, so therefore they didn't try. I thank God that I was able to get my child out of this environment. She is thriving and making straight A's in her new school.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
