This school is great. It is safe, fun, challenging (hence the name Challenge School) and has a very close-knit relationship with its students. We have a strong focus on math. Our math teams and classes dominate the state of Colorado. Our school is also small. The size is for the better, because you get to know people better. The only thing the school lacks is sports, we have nothing in the way of after school sports.
I am going to the Challenge School as we speak. This school is the bomb if your smart go here.
I was a student at the challenge school, and I went there from 3rd grade up until 8th. I am now in high school. Challenge is a wonderful school and almost all the students are/were on honor roll. I made a lot of friends and also did well. I would recommend this school highly. I had alot of fun.
Very good acedemic progams, perfect extracurricular activities and a lot of parent envolvement.
The challenge school provides wonderful opportunities in the the arts. As well many of the teachers find creative ways to teach the students to both challenge and engage the children. Communication between parents and faculty appears to be very good,with timely notice of any difficulties.
My child is in 6th grade and has been at this school since kindergarten. Back in 1998 you could get in more quickly, but as the school's reputation has become more publicized, the waiting list has increased. I am very happy with the school except for the activities offered, but you can't expect everything when you've got a public school with the top standardized test scores in Colorado. So we attend activities (band, sports, etc.) elsewhere.
I recently read about your school's program donating hair to help victims of Alopecia. While not a bleeding heart liberal, a person who says,'Ohhh' every time a kitten walks by, or even someone who is prompted to write just to complain, I must commend your students. Their unselfishness, regardless of motivation, has helped people and contributed to the overall happiness in the world, a truly good gesture. Bob Train Aurora Colorado
This is an awsome school! I just started sixth grade here, and I love it. The teachers and staff are nice, we have a great student council who plan good activities, and I just love it! One of the only bad things: it is a real pain to get into the school in the first place! Thanks!
