Great school and staff. Very carrying and dedicated to their students. It is also nice to see so many volunteers willing to give of their time to help out. The atmosphere in this school is both inviting and friendly.

I have had both of my children in Dos Rios. They have a friendly, caring staff with a desire to see students succeed!

I have a child with some learning difficulties in the 4th grade at Dos Rios. They have really gone above and beyond to give him extra help. They put him in a literacy group that gives puts extra attention on reading and writing. Because of his learning issues he was eligible for to automatically be put in the after-school program, which puts an additional 2 hours towards learning. They also had a counseling group he was involved in for kids who needed to talk about different issues. I am happy with this school.

Lack of extra curricular opportunities. Supervision of students is lousy.

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.
