What a wonderful school!! We've been in the neighborhood for the last 18 months after relocating to Denver from North Carolina. Our daughter spent half a year in Kindergarten and a full First Grade year at Asbury, and we honestly couldn't be any happier. Personalized education, a school where the teachers actually get to know (and care about) the students, benefits of a small school environment with the access to all the resources of the surrounding Denver/DU area.. Before/After school care offered is also of a very high quality!!

After looking at a lot of different schools for our daughter, I am so happy we decided on Asbury! Although it doesn't get as much attention as Cory and Steele etc. - it's a wonderful small school and we couldn't be any happier. It offers fabulous and caring teachers and staff, music, (drama new next year), art, PE, after school Spanish and art classes. And, my daughter loves it there so what more could you ask for?

My child has a disability diagnosed by Nancy Uhlmann she has 3 masters degrees in teaching special education one of which covers dyslexia as her focus. Yet they say he has brain issues not Dyslexia he has seen the doctor and it is not brain damage. They still insist. They have my disabled child writing I AM NOT SATISFIED on his work. Having a DISABLED child write this will destroy his confidence. I called and after short discussion was hung up on me. my wife called and they said they don't have time to discuss things with parents its not their job. My other son was written up for poking someone with a wire they didn't even call me. i found out about this 2 months after it happened when they got around to disciplining him. When asked why 2 months later she told my wife they didn't have time. When asked how he got a wire they said they don't have the time to check the classrooms. last yr my oldest was bullied for over a yr and they didn't even notice when it was right in front of them.THIS IS A SCHOOL WITH NO TIME FOR ME OR MY KIDS...OR EVEN CHECK THE SAFETY OF HIS CLASS. ISN'T THIS THE SCHOOLS JOB? I have had so many problems. My kids will NEVER go there again EVER

My daughter is thriving at Asbury on every level: scholastically, socially, physically, emotionally, etc. The teachers and staff are dedicated, positive folks who demonstrate their commitment to the school on a daily basis by being such incredible educators and mentors to the kids. My daughter loves her teachers and won't leave for the day without giving hugs and kisses goodbye. And I think that says a lot about *her* great perceptions of the overall culture - more than words could ever convey.

I love Asbury Elementary. The Teachers are all wonderful. I haven't heard one bad thing about anyone of them. The Principal and her open door policy are very welcoming and friendly. My children are afforded some great opportunities here with free instruments and new technology. My oldest is well prepared for Middle school work and responsibility. My children are gifted and the school keeps them challenged.

My kids love school. I think Asbury has a very nurturing environment with excellent teachers. When I am in the hallways, I hear teachers using very positive methods of teaching (no yelling-which was very prevalent at another school where I worked). I feel like the teachers really know my children and care about them personally. The principal has an open door policy and is concerned with getting to know all of the families at Asbury. The PTA is growing and trying to think of ways to increase parent involvement. I think improved networks of communications will help get parents more involved. I don't feel like it is a lack of desire or willingness to be part of their child's education. Asbury is culturally and socioeconomically diverse school that provides a caring learning environment for kids.

I believe this school is amazing. although last year the only complaint i had was not enough paretns got involved when we needed help. and that was a little disapointing.

We love Asbury! This is a small school with fantastic staff and teachers. Everyone knows not only your students name but your whole family. They are friendly and helpful always. We love our teachers and have enjoyed this year. They have a fantastic ECE program and we were very excited to be able to attend. We have used the CHOICE option to attend here and we are grateful that we can continue to attend such a terrific school that cares about their students and guides them so well. Parent ivolvment is one of the evident reasons this school thrives. A stellar PTA makes families welcome and the school year fun.

Asbury is an example of a small and excellent DPS elementary. We have PE, music and art and a great library. The principal knows all the students by name, is very involved and informed. We have an active PTA and the staff at the front desk is just the best! The teachers are creative and have challenged both our kids, who are highly advanced readers. We feel so lucky to have such an excellent, caring and academically solid school within walking distance.

My son is in the E.C.E.(Early Childhood Education) program at Asbury. I attendend Kindergarten there a million years ago! He showed me how to spell his name today, he is only four. We are out of District, but I will try to 'opt' in for Kindergarten (We are currently in Cherry Creek School District #5). I, and we (My son, husband and daughter) feel comfortable here. My son, who is very serious and reserved is excelling at Asbury!
