My children have been going to this for a short amount of time and I feel this school does not protect my children or have there best interest in heart. My kids get beat up and bullied and nothing gets done they also send my children home from school during breakfast with no phone call or supervision. This is the worst school I have ever delta with

I Love this school it is a really good school that helps kids that don't know english learn it better all the teachers are very helpful and help you in whatever you need help like if you don't understand something they will help you improve. I learned a lot at this school and every year they are adding something new so students will learn more and in 5th grade they really prepare you well for middle school.. I really love and miss this school

the qualitys of this school are great to the students that are joining this school or are in this school for example the music just wants to make the kids want to sing and the art makes the kids want to say i wish it was like this at home the sports are the best part about this school because it makes your kids stay in fit and the grades k-4 do one lap around the field every single day and the grade 5 does 2 laps around the field it makes them want to stay in fit and it makes them stay healthy and the nutrition of the kids is the most important thing that we care about the food is great in knapp elementary school every day the knapp cooking satff takes out fresh cooked food for your children.So pick now were do you want your kids to be.

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.
