My kids attended this school after moving to Colorado from the East Coast. They were previously at a private school. I was surprised to find that the level of academics at Aspen was actually more advanced than what they had been accustomed to. The staff is wonderful, principal is great. A true family atmosphere. Both are in middle school now, but I have very fond memories of my kids' time at Aspen.

My kids have been with ACE since kindergarten, I am very pleased with their curriculum. They have the best teachers and principal. Their teachers are so caring to their students they even stopped me during their grocery shopping and chatted with me for half an hour trying to hear my comments on their work and how they can become better. Can't really ask for more. They are the best!

ACE is an excellent school. The principal is hands on involved making sure things run to meet his standards. The teachers too are the best of the best. Its a safe atmosphere where you know your child is getting top notch education and care.

Aspen Crossing Elementary has the best Principal I've ever encountered. The teachers are flexible and push each student to the highest level of learning allowed by their abilities.

We can't say enough good about this school. The Principal and teachers have exceeded our expectations. Mrs. Withycombe and Mrs. Sunstrom have been amazing. They are so good at what they do, and you can feel that they really care about their students and want them all to succeed. We are so thankful to have our kids at Aspen Crossing.

I have a 2nd grader at ACE and have been more than pleased with the quality of education he has received as well as his teachers. Many of the previous reviews talk about how this school needs new leadership, but we did get a new principal this year and I am extremely pleased with how things are going for ACE. Not only does ACE have a wonderful staff, but the curriculum is tailored to the student which has helped my son excel in ways I could have never imagined. I commend the entire staff of ACE on their quality maintainence of a great school.

My two children attend ACE, and love it. We moved from an out of state, private school to Aspen Crossing, so we weren't sure how the transition would go. I have been very pleased with the progress they are making. The curriculum is advanced and challenging; the teachers are outstanding, caring and work well as a team. The children are respectful and model great behaviors for each other. I am very impressed with this public school.

Aspen Crossing Elementary has the potential to be a good school under new leadership. The principal struggles to form relationships with her staff and parents. She fails to establish discipline with the students and lacks the leadership needed to run an effective school.

Leadership needs to be changed here at Aspen Crossing Elementary. Principal is more suited for middle or high school not elementary school. Parents concerns are dismissed and confidentiality is breeched. The teachers are outstanding and caring individuals.

I have been a parent at Aspen Crossing since the school has opened. I am very disappointed with the leadership of the school. They really don't seem to have programs in place for the more able & less able children in their care. They may say they do but it has yet to be seen. If you are a parent that has an advanced child or child that may need additional help in an area or two, I hope your ready to do a lot of it on your own without the schools help. To say the very least I would expect more of a Cherry Creek School. 'Very unhappy parent!'

We have a child in Kindergarten at ACE and we are very pleased with the level of teaching and discipline. The teachers and principle are very involved in the school and it shows. You walk through the halls and the kids are walking quietly and in line (something you don't see in some other schools!) Students are taught responsibility from the get go. Teachers are very accessible willing to talk to parents whenever needed. We selected ACE as our 'school of choice' and we couldn't be happier.

Our daughter is in Kindergarten at Aspen Crossing and thus far, we have nothing but wonderful things to say. The teachers and principal are very involved with student activites and learning. Rarely do you see a school where the principal take her own time to act as a crossing guard in front of the school. Wonderful learning facility.
