Great school and all the teachers except the tech teacher are wonderful. The staff is great. We came from an out of state top ranked school and they seem to keep the same standards and want the kids to succeed. The tech thing first was very odd, due to other states do not require it and really find it to be useless. The teacher of the tech classes is very rude and arrogant. I have my children in additional classes thru online for tech, foreign language, and advance classes so they will be able to excel and avoid the tech teacher at this school. But the main class teachers are so wonderful and go beyond whats required.

My children have been in this school district for the past 9 years. The teachers & administrators really care about the students. They are constantly working to improve in all areas. It is a small community and a great place for your kids.

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.
