This is a great school and community to raise your child in. The staff are supportive and nurturing and I have really seen amazing things with the culture and environment. Would recommend this school and school district to any parent that wants an environment where their child is encouraged to be themselves and can talk to any staff member and get help.

I have seen nothing but drama, bullying, disrespect and inconsidoration fromother students and the staff WILL NOT GET A HANDLE ON IT. My daughter ended up seeing counseling due to many of these issues. I am VERY DISSAPOINTED in this school district. I pulled both of my daughters out and put them in Canon City school district. Much better then Florence.

When you look at average test scores, it is important to understand that they are testing kids who have severe physical and emotional issues. They can't talk or walk let alone test at grade level. The Special Education Department does a wonderful job at working with students with disabilities as well as their parents. The staff does a great job communicating with the students and parents. you can go online daily and view the grades. That is a Great School!

I'll admit, im only a 7th grader, but i can already see that there is too much fighting, and cursing going on, on school grounds, i don't understand some stuff in the class but the teacher barely explains, so i dont have a very overall grade in that class, i do keep trying, but it seems my grade just isn't going up

I have had nothing but problems with this school if you have a normal child who can behave all the time then you wont have a problem but if you have a child who is special needs then dont count on them taking the time to teach your child

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.
