My school is a great place to learn about the world around me. The teachers here are great.

Laredo Elementary is the worst school I have ever taken my children too. The teachers are rude and disrespectful to the students, but demand respect from the kids. Every aspect of that school is geared toward non english speaking Mexican's. The American children are treated like outcast. That's how all there funding is possible. The teachers, principal, lunch lady's, etc are horrible. My fault for moving to this neighborhood with out checking out the school. One thing though. When parents are around they are so nice, its behind the scenes that all the crazy things happen. Put a tape recorder in ur childs book bag, you would be amazed at what you hear!

Laredo is a terrific school. The teachers care, and push kids to be the very best they can be. I know Laredo's state test scores have gone up four or five years in a row, and are the highest they've ever been. They have the top rating of "Performance" from the state, so I don't understand the GreatSchools rating of 2. Also, it has one of the best discipline records in Aurora. It's a safe and happy school for our children.

I am very please with Laredo Elementary school. I know that the teachers work hard and treat each child as an individual. They push my child to succeed to the best he can be and he is doing awesome in school. It is great to be a part of this school with a staff that works so hard.

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.
