The teachers are truely there for the kids. They go above and beyond the the students each and everyday! Next year we will have a smaller school that will close down and merge in with out students. This closure came from the staff up- because it was best for the students. Teachers and staff will be lost, but they understood this risk and accepted the challange! Next year Bauder will be bigger, stronger and more diverse. We are lucky to have Bauder be out Neighboorhood school!

My child attended Bauder. I was disappointed in the education he received. Most of what he learned he had learned in his previous school in another state. If this is quality education Fort Collins is way behind. The children have no acceptance of children from other areas. My child will attend a private school where hopefully people from other states are accepted and are not put down because they were not born here.

Bauder is an amazing school with a high level of community involvement. The teachers are well-educated, creative, and fun. The small school feel and seperation of age groups into pods makes it a safe and age appropriate environment for all of the children attending. The principal is always available and interested in parent imput and thoughts and willing to try different steps in educating the children. I have been so impressed by this school and am proud to have two daughters that will attend here! Don't let the small size scare you - this is a great school!

I have had 4 children go through Bauder and still have two attending. I love this school and the teachers. Many of whom have been teaching for years! And I mean years two of them were my teachers. They still are the best and love the kids and what they are doing. I have never seen a tight knit environment. My kids love to go to school everyday. There are teachers who will stay after school and help even if they are not their teacher. I love going in there and seeing everyone they make you welcome and part of the family. I would not want my kids to go anywhere else! I feel very blessed to have this school in our lives!

I have two children in Bauder Elementary. My children enjoy learning in a positive atmosphere where the teachers are always doing their best, and reaching beyond. During all the grades so far, my children have received individual attention, and I as a parent have had a continuos communication with their teachers. Great school with exciting art and music programs encouraging active parent-involvement!

My daughter just started there. Seems ok so far - she comes home every day excited about what she has done.

My step son's teacher is often unresponsive.

I like my son's teacher, but when I tried to be involved in the Halloween party I never heard back from anyone. The communication is definately not what it should be.

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.
