Great Schools ratings are total BS. This school is fantastic. The principal on down to the janitor are the best of the best. Last of 3 kids finishing there this spring. They were all extremely well prepared for higher grades and life itself. I rate this school the best of the best in Colorado and we have some great schools.

We love this school. Our 4th and last child is attending now. The older 3 absolutely loved their teachers and the principal. Numbers mean nothing. A huge % of very low income and minority kids with very little knowledge off English and yet after one year they are doing great.

Small classrooms and a dedicated staff make this school run so well. The principal Vernan Raney is very motivated to make it a cohesive working enviroment by supporting the teaching staff and being an excellent listener to parents. Love it!

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.
