We are new to Colorado and this is our son's first year in school in this state. We started out the year with our son attending Maplewood, but after a couple of months realized what a big mistake that was! We started researching other area schools and decided on touring Meeker. Meeker's staff is wonderful and the teachers are, too. We are happy with our choice to transfer him to Meeker!

my kids have gone here to meeker for 3 years now and the first 2 were great I was however not impressed this last year with how the new principal ran things at the school. I am going to be giving them another try this year because I really dont want to change the school on my kids but I will consider moving them next year if this is not any better. On a better note I love the teachers my children have had so far they have all been great!

This school has been wonderful for my kid in the past. But beware the last year has been a rough ride. All the wonderful teachers are being told how to teach, speak , and dress by the representitive of our school district . If we were not almost done I would seriously consider moving schools, and we know many children that are leaving. Meeker does have wonderful teachers, but there are many that are unhappy . This is to the point that all the children and their parents are aware of the distrust between the groups. If they can get an admin thats not out to get the teachers I expect worse things to come,

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.
