Poor test scores with reason. The teachers do not challenge their students to reach for the best. The few children who try to be leaders by example are bullied. Uniform polices are NOT enforced. My child went into this school with the expectation of structure and discipline - neither of which he found. No spelling homework. No science. No push for a gifted child to do more. Teachers have been known to take away another child's home lunch (consisting of chicken, fruit, carrots, and juice) in favor of the school provided lunch. Attitudes of the principal and staff are "If you do not like it, take your child to another school." My response is, "O.K. I will."

I have four children at this school and my kids have a variety of needs and abilities. They love their school and all the work they get to do outside of the school through the Expeditionary Learning program they have started in the last couple of years. My kids feel loved and are able to discuss some great issues with us and are learning how to get along with other children through the character development that is throughout the community. There are morning meetings every day with the Principal and my kid tells me she talks to the principal whenever she has a problem and that she can visit the school counselor anytime she needs to. Their staff is always accessible and very kind-hearted. Some of the teachers are inexperienced but you find that at all schools. As long as my kids love learning we will stay here.

This school is AMAZING and I'm thought to be quite a tough cookie when it comes to my approval on schools! We have two children with IEPs and another child who exceeds expectations when challenged. This school is such an enormous contrast from the ongoing battles we experienced at the other schools our children were enrolled in. They are an extremely well functioning school with very caring teachers and staff. SLA offers a close knit community who's teachers and school leadership welcome parental involvement and work as true team! Bullying is nearly non-existent due to small class sizes. SLA offers a personalized, circulating, hands on curriculum. They have gym and Spanish everyday, and they also do a level of whole person building. This school has a diverse population and they incorporate the exploration of different cultures in their daily teaching. The teachers and staff far exceed our expectations on a daily basis. I highly recommend this school for any parent of a child with a disability who is tired of fighting to obtain what their child needs and/or any parents who has a child that is not being challenged enough in school. Moving your children is well worth the adjustmen

Great staff, great support, nice small, tight-knit school. If things change as our kindergartner gets older, I'll amend the review. Always good communications and concerns addressed quickly. Our daughter loves the art & music programs too. Highly recommended.

My son is currently a third grader at Scholars to Leaders Academy. This is his third year at the school and I couldn't be happier! All of the teachers and staff members show great interest in the students and are very willing and eager to communicate with the parents on a regular basis. The programs and courses are great too! I love the fact that Spanish is taught to all grade levels at the school because I know that this is going to look great on my son's resume when the time comes. The reading program is excellent and I love that art, music and physical education are learned along with your math, science, social studies, etc. The teachers and staff also work with the students on social responsibility, which in my opinion makes them a rare gem. This school is not only out to help the student but also the families and community. I would (and have) recommend Scholars to Leaders Academy to anyone and everyone!

My kids went there last year and it was an awsome experience. They would have gone there again this year except we moved out of state. My sons teacher worked a lot with my son to get him caught up to grade level. All the staff helped so much. My daughters teacher worked with her. My daughter is a quick learner and one of the top in her class. And their after school program helped out so much and my kids really enjoyed it. If I could have brought the school with me, I would have. Scholars To Leaders is the best school by far and will be hard to beat!!!

My daughter has been with Scholars to Leaders since kindergarten. She is now going into third grade, and I am contiually amazed at her growth. The level of commitment of the teachers is unparallelled. They care deeply about the students, As a result, my daughter truely loves being at school.

This is one of the worst schools I've ever had to deal with. So glad to be taking my kid to a better school with better programs and better test scores. There is a huge performance issue in this school with teachers, I know my son's teacher was by far one of the laziest people I've ever come across. My child went into this school last year with excellent test scores and had the ability to progress so much further if this school would have put a little more effort into their teaching and nurturing his gift for learning! I'm upset with the attitude I was given when I addressed my concerns for my child, it was completely unacceptable! I am 100% involved in my children's education and I want nothing but the best for them I don't recommend this school to any parent that is actually involved in their child's educational development. This school needs to be shut down, seriously!

I feel this school was going in a great direction last year, but because of low enrollment this year, several teachers have left including the gym and music teacher. They were replaced by well-meaning individuals who are trying hard, but are not proficient in their areas. There is no after school music or drama programs anymore. Unless enrollment improves a lot next year, I don't see an improvement in these areas.

I love the small class sizes. The way teachers treat students is fantastic. The academis are very high quality and the before and afterschoolprograms are great for working parents. This school has a longer school day and school year and the Spanish program is fantastic. I highly recommend it

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.

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.

The different student groups are identified by the Colorado Department of Education. If there are fewer than 16 students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

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.
