My student has just started kindergarten and was in the summer KidQuest program at Clayton. I have found the teachers, principals and the director of KidQuest to be absolutely incredible. Everyone knows my student by name and is familiar with his needs and interests. They are organized and communicative and have explained their curriculum and expectations for my son's learning. I would not take my child anywhere else. GO TIGERS!!

I am absolutely floored at how great this school is. From the day my son started, he has had a curriculum tailored to his needs (GT). The teachers are all amazing. We have to move to Parker in the next year or so, and to be honest, I m pretty certain that no other school will ever even compare to what I get from Clayton!

This is a wonderful school with a wonderful group of teachers. They are very involved and caring. My daughter attended pre-k thru 5th. I plan to send my youngest there as well even though we are not in the district!!

I love this school and both my forth and fifth grader attended this school. I recently had to move and I am very sad that they have to change schools. Mr Fore the principle is awsome and Mrs Tribur is one of the most deticated teachers I have ever met! I most definitly reccomend this school to anyone!

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.
