Whoever wrote the post in 2007 needs to simma down. Im surprised you even chose to stay at a school that you insulted. GLA has a bad a rep and yes, has made amazing strides to become one of the most respectd schools in the district. This is due to an established culture made by teachers and new directors. Thank you all for staying, and getting rid of RIch Sinclair.


Posted August 31, 2011

I think that this school is growing every year. GLA has had a lot of changes, but I can honestly say every year the academic rigor, community, student behavior and success stoires grow. It is an exciting school to be apart of, and the teacher have close realtionships with their students. There are under 500 students for the whole school, K-12th which adds a real sense of family.

The school is pretty bad! The lunches are not that good, most of the students say everything in that school is cheap! The teachers are also ok...but some are bad! Its true the school is cheap i agree with the students. There is alot of bulling foresure. All u can say is...the school is cheap.


Posted June 24, 2011

It will soon be Fall, 2011 and A LOT has changed since 12/2007 so don't be turned off by the old post below or past years of bad reputation. GLA is a great small school where every student is known by teachers, staff and administration. Students do not fall through the cracks because there are such great relationships being made by teachers who care a lot. Staff work hard to meet the needs of every student. I have personally experienced several students leaving for other schools (for whatever reason) and returning to GLA for the unique and supporting community.

As a student i got next to no home work. Class work was easy and fast. We didn't get books to take home, and no media center. But the teachers where really nice. I loved almost all of them.

Posted December 27, 2007

This is possibly the worst school in the state! The students are totally out of control. There is no discipline from either the teachers or administration. I have been working in education for 14 years, and have never seen such a poorly run school. There have been 8 principals in 3 years, and a revolving door of teachers everyday.

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.

3 This rating is based on composite ACT scores from 2012-13 and four-year adjusted graduation rates from 2011-12. ACT participation represents the percentage of 11th graders taking the ACT. Because the ACT is mandated in Colorado high schools, ACT participation is NOT included in the GreatSchools rating.
