Yale Elementary is fortunate to have Nancy Klinedinst as principle this year. Her experience and dedication will bring wonderful things to this school as it did at Ames Elementary in Littleton Public Schools. We miss your presence, your knowledge and your kind, encouraging words, Ms. Klindinst! Best wishes to you and your students at your new community, Yale Elementary!

I just wanted to say I think your choice with Mr Mix this week has been very opening for my son, he has been more anxious to larn since Mr Mix has given simple yet useul ways to make learning easier and fun for the kids.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Colorado used the Transitional Colorado Assessment Program (TCAP) to test students' skills in reading, writing and mathematics in grades 3 through 10, and in science in grades 5, 8 and 10. The TCAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Colorado. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test. The TCAP replaced the CSAP as Colorado's state assessment program effective for the 2011-2012 school year.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
