Drake is really nice. Kids and teachers are happy and CSAP scores for 8th grade is best ever and among the top for the whole district, the largest in CO. Wonderful Principal.My daughter is happy and so are we. We could use more parents to get involved in this great place.
The majority of teachers at Drake have made a sincere effort to relate to the students. It has helped my child gain respect for them which in turn gets him to put a bigger effort into his schoolwork. It's as if the Drake faculty is all on the same page regarding what is best for the whole student body while positively molding each individual student at a time. It's a school that I am glad my three sons have all had the opportunity to attend.
My 7th grader is really flourishing here, and Jr High isn't easy to say the least. My average student has blossomed into a smart, funny, caring, conscientious, student with a 4.0 GPA!! I'm so proud, to hear her talk about colleges already just blows me away. They are definitely doing it right, creating a school kids are proud to be smart at. The extracurricular activities are abounding, there are their electives classes, and their 'clubs' for their special interests. Keep up the good work team!!! Sincerely, A very satisfied mama
My 3rd son is now enjoying this wonderful school. It has been a place for each of them to flourish and become more independent. The teaching staff has a wonderful attitude towards each other and the student body. They help students feel included and encourage them to be involved. The clubs have been a great way to try new things and feel relaxed as they are readied for high school.
