This school is awesome, I dont care what anyone thinks of it, honestly the teachers are cool and pretty much everyone is, and what I like about it is that we have more attention from the teachers and we learn better and you get to know everyone of our classmates much better and make more friends and we have a lot of breaks lol and the improvment you get from when you were at your old school to coming here now gets way better, i mean look at me i used to ditch everyday at George and now that i come here i go to class everyday and ka grades are so much much better and i raised my GPA again. The teachers here at CLA really do care. =D CLA IS AWESOME!!!

I was a Graduate of C.L.A in 2006. This school is for students who think that graduating is not a option, second chances are what C.L.A represent, if it wasen't for this school I would have never Graduated, and experienced only a GED, but an eduaction is a terrible thing to waste, & I thank the school and staff for all there support, and giving me the oppournity & faith to believe that I am now a college graduate majoring in Criminal Justice.

There are some good teachers, but the leadership is terrible. The administration doesn't seem to care about 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.
