My child has just started 6th grade and we have always been happy with his teachers. However this school does not stand by it's "zero tolerance for bullying" policy. The bullying was so bad I could have pressed assault charges for physical abuse from a student from a higher grade, but was reassured it would be taken care of. Of course due to privacy laws I could not be told how it was handled. Very disappointed in this school.

The staff at this school should learn basic spelling before attempting to teach children how to spell. "Safe 2 tell is on a national sight to anonymously report anything!" For starters it's site, not sight.

This is not our neighborhood school. We choiced in. The school talks about anti-bullying but we have had problems for years and they don't do much. Otherwise it is a good education.

I have two children attending Grant Ranch. I have nothing but Respect for the entire school. There is such a diverse attendance that I can only imagine how hard it is to keep up with everyone's needs. I have seen nothing but professionalism from everyone involved. It seems to be a friendly environment where everyone steps into the role where it is lacking. Teachers can answer office phones and security guards are helping with children and their homework. It is a loving environment and it shows on the children's faces as they are coming and going. My kids have loved attending and I love the fact that my oldest never had to suffer through that middle school stage. Grant Ranch has met all of our requirements and my children have excelled, since both are gifted and talented.

My kids have always gotten what they need here. One of my kids need above & beyond while the other need extra to keep up. Despite the size, it is a wonderful community where the teachers know all of the kids throughout the school. As a former teacher, I have always been impressed with the quality of education delivered and the dedication of the staff.

I have two children that attend Grant Ranch k8. I am very unhappy with this school. The quality of teaching is very poor. Not because of intellect of the teachers but due to a lack of passion. There is a lack of supprt for children with learning disabilities or dicipline problems. These children seem to be pushed aside and allowed to fall threw the cracks. The IEP department doesn't coordinate the support and communication with the teachers. An explantion of the childs needs and weaknesses are either ignored by the teahers or not communicated to them. The office engages in gossip and is openly judgemental. My child returned home upset that the security guard and vice-principal came to the science class and explained that "they are the worst 7th grade class the school has ever had". This was not true and gave the children a bad attitude toward the school and its teachers. I would not expect a child to recieve a quality education at Grant Ranch.

I am currently in the 8th grade at Grant Ranch. I am a gifted and talented student with my grades above the majority of my class memebers. My 7th grade math teacher paid me and the other GT students no attention, and wouldn't answer our questions or allow us to contribute in class discussions. This school has given me absolutely nothing to challenge myself except for the mathletics program, which was now switched to an all GPA level elective, no longer an invitational extr-ciricular activity. Over-all, I am not happy with my school. They have gotten rid of their GT program due to the fact that it makes other students feel inferior. I hope they never are allowed to become a K-12 school.

I've had 2 students in the middle school and have been nothing but pleased. One has moved on and has easily obtained a 4.1 GPS his first year due to his exemplary preparation. I am looking forward to another great year for my 7th and 4th grader!

I have to DISAGREE with the last comment. The middle school team needs some work; especially the 8th grade team! I may not be a teacher but I am a parent and I have dealt with quite a few schools and with numerous teachers for about 15 years and I have to say that I am not impressed by the GR staff! Someone made a comment about how unhappy they appear to be and I agree wholeheartedly as I HAVE an 8th grader at this school! I have seen some of the behaviors described in other posts FIRST HAND and I find it to be extremely unprofessional and highly unethical! If I had known then what I know now, my child would have never been placed at Grant Ranch. This school is in serious need of change and I hope no other child has to endure what my child has!!!

The parking at this school is completly insane. There is no where for parents to park I have a pre-school child that I have to take in, can not just be dropped off. We had to park 2 blocks way & walk on pure ice because the streets & walks were not salted or plowed. My child fell right in front of a school bus, as did a mother & her child behind be. This is completely unexcusable. Im disgusted at how the school is handleling this situation, and @ 75% of the students were tardy today because of this chaos! NOT ACCEPTABLE!

When we first saw this school that our daughters were going to go to, we were pleased, but the old saying don't judge a book by it's cover is right on when it comes to Grant Ranch. My 4th grader's teacher was absolutely heinous. I asked for a meeting with her for several weeks and when I got tired of waiting for her response, I called her back. She told me that they were planning on having the meeting that day, of course without giving me any notice. She has been extremely rude the whole school year and I feel, since we as taxpayers pay her wage, that we should be looking at the waiting list for a different teacher. My advice, don't go to this school.

Our daughter has been at Grant Ranch going on 8 yrs now, she will be starting 6th grade this year, and has been at Grant Ranch since ECE. It has been a wonderful school for her! Great teachers, great staff. We love the fact that our daughter already knows the middle school teachers , as she has already worked with them in prior years, either through reading buddies, or after school activities. Our daughter has been part of the Gifted and Talented Program, and has been involved in the many after school activities that Grant Ranch offers. We've heard that many Jeffco school do not offer what we get at Grant Ranch , so we feel fortunate that our daughter has had the opportunity to be part of Grant Ranch. Love Grant Ranch and look forward to the next 3 yrs in middle school !

Don't be fooled by the neighborhood. It looks like 70% of the studets are coming from 'other' areas of Denver, even being bussed in! There is a serious lack of discipline and the bullies rule the school! There is also a rumor that they want to go K-12! Its bad enough 8th graders are running over 5yr olds in the hall, can you imagine the already overcrowded parking lot full of high school kids? Ugly.

I have really enjoyed having my kids in Grant Ranch School. All my kids' teachers have been outstanding, and my kids have really flourished. I am really upset that we are moving out of the district, and I have to send my kids to a lesser quality school.

Posted November 2, 2008

I agree with the last two comments. The elementary section is 'ok' but the middle school is awful. My suggestion as a parent of a former student is to get out of this school by the 4th grade and attend the excellent jeffco or littleton schools in the area (especially if your child is gifted!)Mr. Kullhem needs to come back...current administration needs to leave and the middle school teachers (pretty much all of them) need to be reassigned or at least get some training on how to teach!

I pulled my children from this school. I agree with many of the previous comments if the teachers, princple seems to like your child or you, the sky is the limit. Everyone else to bad. They seem to lack a curriculum worth talking about. Yes if your child is struggling you are on your own and on the other end if you have a highly gifted childe oh well. Nice looking school, lots of parent involment, if you are a parent that works and can't be as involved your child pays. Definitely not the best school available in the area!

The elementary part of the school is good, but the middle part is bad. If a teacher doesn't like the child or the parent they treat them unfair. My child was there and a certain teacher did not like her, so if she didn't do the homework to the teachers satisfaction my child had to stay in for lunch, call me, redo the homework for no credit, and if it happened more than 3 times she was suspended from school. I feel that if the child works on the homework they should at least get the credit and if they didn't they get an 'F', not suspension.

I'm not impressed by this school at all! The class rooms are way over packed. The lunch menu is not fit for a K9.

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.

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.
