Excellent, caring staff. Try very hard to help students excel, despite the prejudice of the neighbors on Santa Fe Drive!!!
—Submitted by a parent


Posted May 9, 2012

You all are doing a horrible job of facilitating a peaceful environment. I work in your neighborhood and have to tell you that all you do is attract a bunch of thugs who after class, loiter around, harassing people, creating havoc, and just today I watched on of your students tag the movie theater next door. We are trying to make the Santa Fe Art District a nicer place. As long as your school is here, that is never going to happen. I'm so sick of the deadbeats that hang out on my block every day. I can only hope that someday they'll all go to jail and I'll be able to enjoy my workplace.

Life depends on the choices and initiative a person chooses. The same for East. They have a great new principal who my son, a graduating senior loves. He is real solid leader and knows what needs to be done there. There are many opportunities, mentioned in other reviews. Grab for them.

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.
