The bullying not only by students but also by staff of the district is outrageous. They think they can tell people who and where they can and can NOT talk to people. They don't follow IEP's and they do NOT treat everyone equal for who they are. They choose their favorites and that is the A typical straight A student and the all star athletic students. They say they have bully policies in place and they don't follow them. In "FACT" one teacher said "We don't have bullying here" First sign of denial. The RSO is also the boxing coach and allow HIS students to threaten others with their skills and lets it go. This is the worst district I have ever seen for social and emotional. This is all how I see it with some able to be proven. Do you love your kids? Think about your choices. I do NOT recommend Clear Creek Schools. NOT one of them.

This school needs to be reevaluated! How many kids have dropped out in the last two years? Is the cop the principal & the councelor? Does he have a degree for this?? Shouldn't a school cop be switched every few years to avoid conflict of interest??

If you really want to know how horrible this school is, just ask some locals! I'm sure they'll have alot of valuable information for you! This is a very unfare school, which does not challenge kids at all!!!!

the experience at Clear Creek is complete and comprehensive. Starting with the front office and including facilities maintenance, f you look for a school that will welcome your student this is it.

Clear Creek is a hidden gem. It is located in a beautiful new building off I-70 in Evergreen. Our boys have benefitted from the small class sizes, rigorous curriculum and wonderful, passionate teachers. They are well prepared for college. Plus, they have enjoyed participating in three sports a year. Very warm, community-minded atmosphere.

The new principal is great! The changes in academic offerings at this school and others in the district are challenging all students to become high achievers. The social culture is also much kinder and accepting.

My son goes to this school and he has a learning disability with an IEP and this school has done amazing things to help him become successful.

Both of my kids have gone through this district- one at the top of her class and the other in the middle. BOTH have received the help and guidance they needed to succeed. BOTH are happy to have attended here. This is a good 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.
