I have been very happy with this school! The staff are all extremely engaged. I love that since it's a small school, the principal knows all of the kids by name, and there's a great sense of community building. There are exciting things happening here, like the garden, and a new PTO! I also think it's great that it's part of DPS's home visit program. KAISER PRIDE!

My two girls have been going to this school for only one semester and I love it. The teachers and staff are caring and really want the kids to learn. This school has recently recieved poor scores due to math/science/reading. I believe all schools have room to grow, but for this school is awesome. Kaiser Pride :)

This school has remarkable staff, and currently has a great principal. My son is autistic, and this school allows my input and observation on a daily basis, allowing me to participate in his education. This means the world to me.

I have 2 girls that go this school. Overall, I love this school. Being that it's in DPS- kinda worried me at first... but it's really great! All of the teachers are wonderful, incl the music, art, gym and library teachers. They got a new principal this year, and although we loved the old one, this new one is pretty awesome too!!

Both of the teachers my daughter has had in her two years in school have been wonderful. They show great interest in the students, and I see evrey day how much she is learning. I notice the principal is very interested in the students and is very involved.

There are some wonderful teachers at this school and there is a great effort to provide extracurricular activities. However, I'm disappointed with the lack of discipline the instructors have over thier students. The secretary has too many responsibilites and the some of the staff working in the office should be more informed as to how things are run at the school. I have moved to another school district but would suggest more parent involvement and more control over the students.

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.
