In this school kids come first. A major effort is focused on interventions for kids that are slipping through the cracks . There is a balance of athletic programs and academic programs for students to participate in beyond the school day. The staff show concern for students and makes classes warm and positive for learning the best way possible for each student.

This is a great community with great kids that we find a multitude of ways to be involved with limited funds.

I love it. It's a great school, the teachers are'nt like millitary coordinators, but they are'nt too soft. They are just in the middle. I'm in 6th grade right now and im loving it! The gate program treats all gate students the same but challenges them in their own special way. =}

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.
