Pikes Peak Prep just completed it's most successful year to date. Enrollment was the highest its been, and retention of students throughout the year was strong. This is strong evidence that parents are happy and satisfied with the school. We know parents have lots of choices in Colorado Springs. We believe our K-12 program which includes full day kindergarten and a full early college program in which we pay for real college credits and the textbooks for our high school students sets the school and our students ahead of the pack. We have graduates who earn more than 40 college credits on a regular basis now while attending Pikes Peak Prep. We recognize that the early years of the school were difficult growth years--as is common in most new schools--but we now have a solid foundation and a wonderful outlook. Please join us, meet our terrific and caring staff and start experiencing all that Pikes Peak Prep has to offer this year.
This school is a great example of what creative education can accomplish. Being K-12, it services a high risk population through the love and care of its teachers and administrators. Come take a tour of the school and watch our dynamic staff and our engaged kiddos learning above-average material every day. There's no ceiling to our learning here and we are looking forward to more and more students graduating with college credit and/or associates degrees by the time they are done here at Pikes Peak Prep.
I Iove working in a small school where I know and care about every child. We as teachers have the ability to meet every child's needs because we are flexible with the curriculum, offer a wide range of after-school activities, and offer free tutoring after school for students who need extra help. Our administration has been very supportive, and they allow us to break the mold when planning our lessons in order to meet all learning styles. At this school, every student has the ability to succeed!
I truly enjoy teaching the students of Pikes Peak Prep. Due to our small class size, we are able to cater to more of ourstudents' needs. We do not let our students "slip through the cracks" and they are always held to a high standard. We teach that success is not only attainable, but also expected. Anyone and everyone who interested in learning more about our school should come take a tour!
My daughter and niece began attending this school this year in 6th grade and Kindergarten and I have no complaints. They offer extra-curricular activities, have music programs, and both of their teachers seem genuinely concerned with the girls' well being and meeting their educational goals. The school is a little bit disorganized, however, many of the schools my daughter has attended in the past were just as disorganized or more-so.
My child went to this school the first year it opened. Horrible experience. Went through several principals. Academics were terrible. A waste of half a year. Hope things have improved.
I had four children attend this school. It was a huge disappointment. From the lack of discipline to the non-existent standards, my children basically wasted a whole school year.
I believe our school is great and the principal has opened a lot of doors for all his students We have oppurtunities now, i never thought possible for all my other schools. I've gone there for my seventh grade year and am now in my eighth grade year, Taking classes i didn't have atmy old schools. I'm amazed at how commited our principal is to getting the most out of our educations.
