I feel like this school is a great learning environment! But the discipline system is not very well! My daughter attends this school. There has been several life threatening students that did not get a punishment what so ever! I feel this school is very wonderful. But often my daughter feels scared to go because of some boys who say very threatening things.

The school is some what fine, there is a teacher there that is getting away with calling kids names as well as assigning kids 5 hours or more of homework. There has been plenty of complaints about this teacher yet she is being allowed to be a tyrant.

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.
