The staff at Charles Hay are amazing they go out of their way for our children. The class sizes are small and I feel my children do not get lost in the shuffle.

There aren't enough good things to say about this school. A caring and devoted teaching staff, fantastic curriculum (now International Baccalaureate) and a well maintained building. My son (and his parents) loved this school and were very sad to move away and miss it very much. Our new school doesn't even come close. I cannot say enough good things about Ch. Hay. Any child that goes to this school will have a wonderful experience.

I have two children that have been going to charles hay since kindergarten. They both have very different learning needs. Although it took until the third grade to realize my daughter was having serious learning problems, they were right on top of it. Thanks to the wonderful third grade teacher we will soon have her right on track. My son is more advandced and the school has been very great for him as well. We recently moved to the other side of town and other schools are closer. We choose to drive a little extra to keep them at this great school. The teachers are very easy to talk to and pay attention to your needs. thanks for listening.

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.
