Student:teacher ratio seems too high for the teachers to cope. Teachers lose track of homework once it's turned in, a problem many parents have noted. Can't say I blame the teachers too much as they're responsible for too many students. Still, it's tough trying to teach your kid to be organized when the teachers aren't providing a very good example.

I have two kids attending Blevens. One is in Jr. High and the other in High School. Both kids complain about hair in their food because the cooks and servers do not wear hair nets. All I can say is "GROSS" How can they get buy with this dscusting practice?

I had 3 students at Blevins Middle School last year and one still attending this year. I was so pleased with the welcome we received when we registered. The office staff was fantastic and friendly, the counselors were involved and the school manages to challenge my talented and gifted student with pre- advanced placement classes as well as offering music classes and sports. It is a great neighborhood school and I see the principal and teachers really striving to make it a fantastic place to learn. Found some really great parents volunteering too!

Blevins Middle School has been such a great experience for my son, being the first 6th grade class to enter Blevins. The staff was well prepared! He is a GT student, and I feel like the staff does everything to provide him opportunities to be challenged and stay engaged. We love it!

My child was a struggling student there that they let fail. As a parent we were not included in any attempts to help turn it around. The staff was not open to discussing any academic help for my kid with me as a parent. I feel that the staff was more afraid of the majority there. A lot of gang activity and no discipline.

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.
