Hi my child attends the high school at district 22 there is a problem with bulling and the school does nothing to stop this. Kids are mean to each other and once they get caught is a slap on the hand but they keep bulling.. It seems the school has No disciplinary act. The hand book is thrown out the window students are allowed to use their hoods during class some teachers don t follow through with discipline. I believe the school needs to take action and step up and stand behind the teachers that do try to follow the rules.

Hi I am a student at Ellicott Senior High School, and even though the test scores or only average, the teachers do teach us we are supposed to know. It is just that some of my fellow classmates do not wish to get the knowledge that they are teacher us. So if you are going to blame anybody, blame the students, that wish not to learn. The teachers are doing an excellent job.

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.
