East is a great school. Their challenge program, which I was in, is AMAZING! You're a grade ahead in everything! I would say that this school is small, but, like they say, less is more! I loved this school and was so sad that I had to move. I would approve this school for anyone!


Posted October 20, 2011

this is a great school. they have many different programs for children with different learning ablities. they have the challenge program for kids that need to be challenged. the teachers are always understanding and try to relate to the kids. mt daughter comes home every day and never stops talking about what happened with the teachers. the also have a time when they do extracircular activities such as photography, current events, or time when kids need help with studies

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.
