dress code is stricter then private schools, and come across as a way for the school to make money, for example the child cant wear t-shirts, sweatshirts, hoodies, or other things unless they are ones purchased with the school logo from the school. Today they pulled a girl out of class because she had one button on her polo shirt unbuttoned. They disrupted a childs learning for one button that did not even show her chest, just her neck. So far not impressed with the staff, the counsler is rude to both children and parents. And the kicker! To keep the kids from being able to let other kids in, they CHAIN THE DOORS SHUT!! litterally chains with padlocks, that has to be a fire code violation.

This school has had a HUGE turnover of teachers and administration during 2012/13 and 2013/14! While the change is needed, it's not a good place to be during transition. Communication with parents has been very poor!

My daughter had excelled since starting at SMS, she now looks forward to each day. When we met with her teachers we felt like they really care about the path the school is going.

All I have to say is this is an amazing school!I had kind of dropped out and I wasnt really going to school at all and my mom took me back there and she talked to one of the guidence counselor and she got me back in and I finished 7th grade. The teacher really worked hard to catch me back up.It was really hard but they stuck by me and now I'm in 8th grade!I highly recomend sending you kid to this school !

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.
