Posted March 22, 2013

This school has the worst drug problems and bullying problems of any school my kids have ever gone to, and as 8th and 9th graders, they have been to a total of 7 different school due to moving often. The school administrators do not enforce policies on these problems and simply try to cover them up. The good students begin to hate school and fear going to it each day. I have two straight A students and they have never had any problems socially until attending this school. They can name several students each day that come to school drunk or high. It's TERRIBLE!

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.
