My daughter transferred from Cherry Creek HS and enrolled at Accelerated Schools during her freshman year. The later start times, the decreased homework load, and the caring and compassionate teachers and staff at Accelerated were exactly what she needed. Removing her from the rat race and stress at a public high school (start times at 7:10am, 5 hours of homework/night, faculty who didn't have a care about their students' well being, and oversized classrooms) was the answer to a happier and more balanced teenager. I can't say enough about Jane Queen, Marianna Bagge, Bryon Gentry and the faculty. They truly care about the students and are warm and welcoming. They will never give up on any student that walks through their doors. The faculty and staff put their hearts and souls into this school. The students are their #1 priority. They care about the kids' education and social/emotional well being. The students are prepared for the ACT and SAT. The college application process went smoothly and my daughter was accepted to 75%of the colleges she applied to, all of which were well respected schools and highly ranked. It is never an easy decision to change schools, but we took a chance and it worked out better than we could have imagined. I highly recommend Accelerated Schools to any parent trying to find a better educational fit for their child. The faculty and staff at Accelerated are exceptional human beings and will impress you beyond belief.

I was a student at Accelerated Schools in the late 80s. I cannot say enough good things about my time there. It taught me skills that I use today with my own teenagers that I never would have learned otherwise. I was delighted to see that Jane Queen was still the director there! I have so many wonderful memories of her. There was never a time she wouldn't make herself available, no matter what the reason. I would have sent my children to Accelerated Schools if we lived in Colorado.

Jane Queen is a genius and a genuinely compassionate person. Anyone would be lucky to be under her tutelage.

Terrible does not fully describe the education (if you could call it that) in which Accelerated Schools of Denver provides.

I didn't think my daughter was performing at our local public school, so I took her here. The school is awful, PLEASE DO NOT SEND YOU CHILD TO THIS SCHOOL, it was a waste of 24,000 and has left me in economic ruins.

Accelerated Schools gave me the impression my student would be successful and cared for and for $24,000 per year I thought he would. Come to find out there is no agenda, the students have far too much freedom and earn grades simply for showing up to class.

My grandson (9) who lives in Chile was diagnosed ADD last summer but was unable to receive help there. He came to Denver for the month of February and returned a new person. The one-on-one help, the small classes, quality staff and particularly the reward system helped him achieve huge success in such a short time.He knows what he has to do and for the first time, loves school. I would bring him back again if necessary and recommend the school very highly. Kids who need help get it here! They don't slip through the cracks!!

My 7 year old was struggling in public school for the beginning of his second grade year. With an Individual Education Plan (IEP) and an Advanced Learning Plan (ALP), he is considered to be Twice Exceptionally Gifted (2E). With some testing we discovered he had Central Auditory Processing challenges. Now 8 years old, he has attended Accelerated Schools for 2 months and is getting what he needs - help for his disability and challenged beyond what he already understands. He is completing 3rd grade studies, 4th grade math and 5th grade reading. With the daily field trips, daily report cards and the allowance system, he is engaged, motivated and is learning accountability. The staff is wonderful and more than willing to accommodate the work and curriculum to suit his needs. I never expected that we would have him attend private school, but we decided that we needed to provide him with a strong foundation, a positive school experience and increased confidence. For the one on one attention he receives, it is worth the investment. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about this school.

Great high school. You can finish it early wtihin 2 or 3 years. Why to waste time.? School does offer daily fun activities to mingle with the peers, but under adult supervision so no crazy staff. School is small, everyone knows each other.
