Our entire community is hoping for a turnover in teachers next year and we will not have to see the same ineffective faces on the faculty website. Walk into many classrooms and you will not see any signs of learning. All the good instructors left in the past when the school year was increase. What's left is a few remaining teachers hoping for that ten year pension.
My family has escaped the Littleton district but every so often I check up on Great Schools to see how districts in the area are doing. Please take my for word for it and DO NOT put your children in this district. Yes, real estate is cheaper in the area and let me assure you, you get what you pay for! I was told my child was beyond help and couldn't learn by the psychologist at Littleton (this was after his teacher told me he was doing well, then changed her mind a day later and agreed with the psychologist). They suggested my autistic son be placed in Life Skills at age 4! His therapist and developmental pediatrician were appalled and disagreed completely. As I mentioned, we have since moved and my son is flourishing and learning new skills every single day in a positive environment now. Getting out of that horrible district was one of the best decisions we have ever made for our family. The teachers and staff at Littleton are lazy bottom feeders. Please do not sell your kids short by placing them in this school or district.
Looks like the AIMS scores went down compared to the previous year. You can see all the score on this website and look at the grade level or the grade your child is in. Please go talk to your teacher if the scores have fallen. From what I can see, it looks pretty bad.
My daughter is now a senior at an accelerated school. She went to Littleton from grade 4-8. The teachers she had where great teachers, they encouraged her to excel, and she was accepted into University High.
I have been attended this school since I was in kindergarten. I just promoted June 12 I am now a freshman. My years in Littleton were amazing !!! Everybody was just so happy about everything. The teachers wow they are so much fun and each and everyone of them has their own way of teaching . Littleton sports not that great :/ ! But Hey ! We had a ton of fun playing sports This school is just simply amazing trust me your child will love it !!!
We're considering homeschooling our children if we cannot get them into another district on a variance or sell our house and move to another district. Yes, that's correct- we are willing to move just to avoid sending our children to this awful district. The teachers are apathetic, the curriculum is lacking and the geniuses (note the sarcasm) in administration extended the school year thinking that would actually improve things somehow. The school year starts in JULY. It's ridiculous. Why not take a look at better districts in the valley (such as Peoria or Kyrene or one of the many others which are WAY ahead of Littleton) and model changes after those obviously successful programs?! I also suspect that one of the positive reviews here was written by teacher at Littleton. A neighbor who's had more experience with this teacher thought the same. It's sad that the teachers and administration have to stoop so low to try to save the school's reputation. Get off GreatSchools.org and try to be BETTER at your jobs!
In reviewing AIMS scores from 2012 to 2013, students grew in 8 out of 12 areas in 3rd - 8th grade reading and math. The average scores are below state averages, but have steadily caught up the last 5 years. Our kids are making excellent progress and we are so proud of them!
