This is the best high school that I know of. The low number of students makes it easier for the teachers to concentrate on the students that really want to graduate.

It was a great school to attend, I always had help when needed, and there was plenty of one on one time with the teachers. -class of 08 baby, yah!-

My son (who has Bipolar disorder) attends Community Prep. His attitude towards school has changed. He doesn't handle the stress of regular school well, so the option of self paced teacher led classes has been a blessing for us! He was able to complete 16 credits in his first year! The teachers and prinicipals are top quality and will work with your child for success! If your child doesn't like to attend school, this could be your answer. Highly recommend this school for those who don't have success at a reg high school. Students have the oportunity for academic and individual growth with programs such as School to Work and Discovery. Field trips are plentiful too!

Initial take: the school seems very focused on helping at risk students in an alternative learning enviroment to graduate as functional adults. Some special ed available. Full range of academics. Parental involvement encouraged on a monthly basis. Waiting to see how summer school works out. Staff very helpful and encouraging. It has been difficult to find a h.s. that will focus on these particular student needs.

I am a graduate of this school. I had dropped out twice, refused to go back to school, and was basically wasting my life until this program was started. I was in the first class to attend, and graduated in two years. I recommend Community Prep to any parent who feels like they are at their wit's end looking for solutions.

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.
