my daughter is really happy at this school, the staff are all great people. teachers are good in communicating with parents and childrens are safe at the building.. really happy..the only concern my daughter has it is about the food Not good at all. she saids a lot a kids prefer to go back home with an empty stomach after a long day at school because they do not like the lunch menu. hope they can do something about it. this will make it a 5 starz school.

My experience at Chipeta was not so good. I have my child at another school now and we are much happier.

My son started kindergarten in the fall of last year and was reading above the other kids in his class by the second month of school. His teacher was great in communicating with me and discussing any concerns.

Needs so much work! Little to no homework, no accountability for grades given by teachers, no updates for parents on student progress/assignments, no online reporting of grades at all despite capability, but they do promote numerous gatherings and activities and such.

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.
