Amount of homework: Disagree

Students are given one math page and 20 minutes of reading every day and no more.

Develops character: Strongly disagree

Principal does not care one bit about staff or students so she refuses to speak with parents on any level or ignores parents all together when spoken to about students.

Not only did my son end up with a concussion at the bus stop after being pulled off the special ed bus and me telling the transportation personnel about the problem child, but I was not allowed to even have a meeting with the bully's parents at the school. The principal was unable to communicate with me and the assistant principal continued to protect the bully student. My son could have died on their watch at the school as it took over 4 hours to finally hear from the school about his odd behavior. I would not send my dog to this school. Choice into a better school especially if you have a special needs child or a child that has issues with other kids bullying them.

Teacher effectiveness: Neutral

Despite having straight As at this school, he ranked low on his social studies testing and is currently struggling in his new school year. He rarely had homework and is behind in most of his school subjects.

The guidance counselor at this school feels that when incidences occur, all parties should be held responsible for outcomes even if your child is injured from another child's bad behavior.

I'm sorry, but the people who left negative reviews may be children and possibly from other schools. Their sentence structure, grammar and spelling is terrible. Over the last 12 years, I've known many children who attended this school. They and their parents rave about it! Remember that schools can only be as good as the parents are at parenting. It's always a good idea to visit your neighborhood school before making a final decision on where your children will attend.

Over all great school! The Principal is very supportive of the students and parents concerns. Love the after school clubs they have and fun nights the Ora put together for the kids! Keep doing fun stuff for the kids to be engaged with the school

This is our second year, first full year and our LAST, absolutely HORRIBLE ADMIN!! The teachers are great and they are leaving in the masses, this year alone my son was supposed to have one 3rd grade teacher but on day 1 she got another job and left her replacement was a 23 year old fresh out of college who we worked with but had NO help from the admin, she was over her head and her whole class suffered, 4 kids dropped out during the year to be home schooled and we just got notice she is leaving to go else where, along with 3 other teachers. Good teachers leave because of the admin, they don't get involved and are annoyed when you ask them to. There are no clubs except Landsharks and some measly excuses for tutoring, we have choiced out, DO NOT GO HERE. I agree with the other post on here, they allow bullying and their positive reinforcement is bull!!

This is our first year at this school and it will be the last. The administration at this school are the absolute worst type of people in charge. My child had a few incidents with bullies at the beginning of the school year and as a result of that has been unfairly singled out if anything else has happened where my child has been involved. Meaning he has been labeled a "trouble causer" when he was the victim and has been unjustly treated ALL YEAR LONG. My input on his consequences for the many things were he was a victim not the instigator, has fallen on deaf ears. The assistant principal rules with an iron fist and thinks she is god at this school and her word is the final one. The current principal is of the same mind. The administration has meetings with your kids when there is a supposed "incident" that you won't find out about from them only from your kids, this is very troubling and inappropriate to me. RUN as fast as you can from this school and this district for that matter. There is no accountability at any level and zero transparency and communication. If you try to speak to the superintendent you get the run around. D-20 is touted as the best in Colorado Springs but that is the polar opposite of what my kids and I have experienced in one school year. The administration needs to be fired and charged with harassment.
