Posted September 21, 2013

This school really helps to prepare kids for college with a rigorous academic program, but it is lacking in the arts, clubs and extra-curricular activities. They also don't do many field trips or activities outside of sitting in the classroom which is disappointing. There are no lockers, passing periods, yearbooks, school newspaper, dances, school events, or opportunities to socialize outside of class, but there is lots of testing and homework including weekends. As one of the best schools in Denver Public Schools including DSST GVR, this is the trade off. I am hoping they find some balance as the school grows and becomes established.

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.
