Hey I'm a 7 th grader there and this school is amazing !! What the other review was all wrong this school is a good place to learn and have fun . I love it here.


Posted August 5, 2013

Teachers and admin office focus on the wrong things. Instead of encouraging children they seem to dwell on the negative. There's never any homework! And boys are suspended for playing football outside for 1 day due to the fact they seemed to be playing to rough. (silly) Grade score level is low due to the unskilled teachers. Run far away from this school. On a positive note it's a great place to socialize and make friends.

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.
