I had my kids at Montview for two years, in the early grades. Of the 5 teachers we knew: * 2 were saints * 1 was okay * 1 should have retired ages ago -- she was a beaten woman * 1 should have had her teaching certificate canceled for questionable discipline practices in the classroom. The principal -- well, God bless her for taking on making a low-income, high-ESL elementary school; that's dedication. That said, it's clear she's a by-the-numbers administrator: displays against state-mandated testing standards are posted all over the school. My kids were near the top of the class, and they were routinely ignored during lessons so that their teachers could work on the kids that were bringing down the scores (statistically that's the smart thing to do, but a bored kid becomes a troublemaker). So I pulled 'em and put 'em in Vanguard Classical, where they know TCAP is a joke and don't teach to the test. When we were there, we had to fight to volunteer. They had canceled the PTO because they were afraid the "parents would take over". We were discouraged from volunteering in the classroom. They don't seem to view the parents as advocates or allies.

The teachers and staff at Montview are incredibly dedicated, often taking time after school to host clubs such as skateboarding and science club. The students are motivated to become proficient and get better everyday. Come visit!! Also, Montview has won several awards recently. Check it out on Colorado Department of Education or on the aurorak12.org website!

I have had a pleasant experience with this school. There are a high number of second language students. I am impressed with the teachers and their dedication to both the second language and English only speeking students. My child's teacher is very good at paying attention to her spcecific needs.

I love the diversity at Montview! The teachers are great and encourage the child to be responsible for their own learning.

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.
