I have always loved the Montessori style of education. It has been perfect for my child who has sensory Processing Disorder. I am very involved in the school and love all of the staff. This year we have some exciting new changes to the curriculum and a new PE and Music teacher. Very excited for the kids. Now we just need to keep trying to get them the gym they need so much.

This is a great school! Teachers work so hard, parents are always invited, and involved. The kids are nice to each other and eager to learn! This year, the school is showing great test scores, too!

My Daughter Loves to go to school everyday and, even became very sad about her summer break. Everyday she could not wait to tell me all the wounderfull things she learned. If she is not engaged she can lose intrest easily,but the education plans they impliment at this school allow all the students to work at thier own pace! This was important to me to ensure she recieved the best education possible.

My 2 kids have had a wonderful experience here. The teachers are great. The girls are really exceling in this environment. Both are learning how to challange THEMSELVES and excel on their own. This program also emphasizes helping other new or younger kids with the 'work'. an invaluable tool.

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.
