I think this is a wonderful school. The teachers and special education teachers/therapists are very caring and dedicated and can always make time to address concerns that I may have and will take the time to keep me informed on my child's progress as well as collaborate with me on new methods and ideas to make my child more comfortable and successful.

Both of my boys attend Scott Elem School. We have some of best experiences with the teachers and staff. Each student is treated individually and receive the attention they require. I don't believe any child is 'Left Behind'. The parent volunteer group is one of the strongest I have ever seen in any elementary school.

I have three kids that are attending or have attended Scott for their elementary years. It is a wonderful school and I wouldn't want my kids to go to any other elementary school. The teachers are caring and awesome! They are never too busy to talk to you about questions or concerns. I highly recommend it to anyone.

Both my children, a boy and a girl, attended all their Elem. years at Scott. I recommend it as a caring, diversified environment!

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.
