My daughter attended this school from K-2nd grade. It was an awful experience for my family. Although I felt that some of the teachers were well-rounded as far as personality and ability go, there was a strange attitude coming from some of the others. Some of the teachers were plainly difficult to get along with. There was clearly favoritism going on from Kindergarten right on up to Second grade. Students that were more aggressive were called upon more often and were rewarded for their outspoken behavior. If you have a more timid child, I would consider other options. My child was shy and her self esteem plummeted and worsened with each day that she attended this school. Eventually she didn't want to go to school at all and she and I would be in tears frequently. She is in a school now where the teachers and the staff are more positive in their approach and are meant to work with children. The opposite effect has occurred there. She is getting special group help that she wasn't at this school and I feel that the people there really care about her. I don't want to discount the really nice people who work at this school. There are a few.

The administration at this school is rude and uncaring. Teachers and admin have no idea how to work with students that have disabilities or to differentiate instruction to accommodate their needs. They also do nothing about bullying. We took him out after a year. The K-8 concept is tempting but stay away from this school!

My son was a student here from 6th grade through 8th grade. He was encouraged to join activities and the majority of the teachers were outstanding. The principal and other staff are also excellant! My concerns were addressed immediately and overall my son felt respected and challanged. I will send my younger son there for middle school as well.

My son has attended this school since 4th grade. I moved him from a traditional elementary school (with high reviews) because most of time there was spent on preparing the kids for CSAP testing. My son had delays and I felt like they were upset he was pulling their scores down. Winograd has always worked with him at his level and provided support where needed. He now has a 3.8 GPA. I have found it to be important to stay in contact with his teachers. We do this via e-mail and it has been extremely helpful. I do this to clarify homework and to let them know if he is struggling with something, etc. They have even called me when they were impressed by a presentation or project! My child has experienced some bullying. I think this happens at every school. While they say they have a no tolerance policy, I think their hands are also tied due to district policies. I took matters "into my own hands" on a couple of occasions and the problems stopped. Winograd has been a much better option than a traditional middle school for us.

I am currently a student in seventh grade and I have seen on multiple cases of desrespect and sudents talking back to the teachers. The princible is horrible an d I believe she needs to be replaced and this is not because only I want her gone, she is very irisplonsible and treats her students as if we are all kindergarteners. And she is constantly accusing us of things we did not do. We need more discipline and better education. This no child left beyond thing is completely bogus! If one child can't learn then they need to be left behind to be helped on their own. The whole class shouldn't have to be dragged back just cause one kid isn't paying attention let them figure it out.

My child attended Middle school at Winograd and I was unimpressed with the curriculum and how the teachers would go about implementing class lessons. Homework assignments were unclear and left us working on them for hours trying to figure out what the teacher wanted. Bullying was a huge problem for my child and nothing every got resolved. I saw firsthand students being disrespectful to staff and nothing happening to the students. This school claims to have a no tolerence policy for violence but yet when a fight amongst students happend, the instigator only got a day of in school suspension. Luckily my child got into another school, because it is pretty sad when your child doesn't want to go to school to avoid a bully.

Both of my children attend this school, and my husband & I both feel it is outstanding. The school acountability report shows overall academic performance to be 'Average' with the academic growth of students at 'Stable' for the 2006-2007 school year. But we honestly feel our children get a MUCH better education here than they did in their private school when we lived in another town. I have open-enrolled my children here because of the relatively small class size; the amazing, well-qualified teaching staff; and the new books and equipment in the classrooms. I spend a lot of time helping in the classrooms as a parent and I cannot say enough good things about this school. The administrators at this school are also very dedicated and are seen regularly in the halls and on the grounds. We feel so fortunate to have found this wonderful learning environment!

Not the best school, but by far not the worst. I do not think that their is good communication between staff members when it pertains to your child. Its like no one has a clue in this school. Also, just anyone could walk in the front doors and no one would care. I've walked in and no one would be in the office. This has also happened when my husband went to pick up our daughter. He had to walk around the school to find someone to help him. I feel the principal is lazy and doesnt value the students or her job. Almost an 'I dont care, its a job attitude'.

Don't send your special needs child to this school unless you are satified with substandard staff, a principal that does not care about the special needs program and mass chaos in the special needs classroom. They have no idea how to run an autism program and should be shut down.

My daughter is only a kindergartner but what I have seen it is a really good school.

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.

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.

The different student groups are identified by the Colorado Department of Education. If there are fewer than 16 students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

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.
