My son truly loves it there. I feel that his teachers there have really cared about the students. The school is very good at keeping in contact with the parents. I love how the school is hands on with the children. I recommend this school to every one.

My daughter just started kindergarten there this year. I was a little apprehensive at first as my older daughter went there for 4th and 5th grades and I didnt care for the teachers or the principal- they didnt care about what was going on in their school- the bullying etc. I have to say that there has been a principal change and it has made a big difference- the teachers are great- the extended hours and kindergarten enrichment program is wonderful. I am very impressed with the changes and the overall atmosphere of the school!

I think this school is great--we moved here from Texas. The teachers seem to enjoy their jobs and the kids. They do not seem stressed over 'state testing' and there is so much emphasis on rounding out the education with art, music, physical fitness, science, community--it has been great for my kids in 2nd and 3rd grades-

This is a wondeful school with a caring and involved staff. I would recommend this school to any parent. They go the extra mile.

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.
