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.

About the test

The Colorado Reading to Ensure Academic Development (READ) Act, passed in 2012, requires that all Colorado kindergarten through third-grade students be assessed early in the school year to identify potential reading deficiencies. The goal of the READ Act Assessment is to make sure that all students are competent readers by spring of their third-grade year and ready for fourth grade curriculum. The test was administered for the first time in the 2014-2015 school year. The READ Act requires teachers to assess the literacy development in the areas of phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary development (including oral skills), reading fluency, and reading comprehension.
