Posted June 28, 2012

My son was in an accelerated math program until he missed two days due to illness, made up the work, and was still kicked out of that class due to "excessive"absences. My son has also dealt with bullying issues by students AND teachers over the last two years, none of which has ever been addressed or corrected by the principal. Due to the incidents, my son now hates school and has begged me on a daily basis to home-school. Certain teachers here will not allow children to use the restroom at times, causing them the embarrassment of having an accident in the classroom. My son becomes bored with tasks and requires challenge; the teachers have refused numerous times to accommodate his learning style and needs, which causes him to act out in a negative manner during class time. My son was doing better in his previous school where he had homework in kindergarten, as well as second grade-level work to accomplish and he did better in school at that time. We (my son and I) are excited to be moving back to that standard of learning. Homeschooling in Gunnison is the best option for your child.

Common practice of not letting children use the bathroom. Yet, they won't talk about this and have no accountability for their treatment of students. Teachers and administration will not listen to parents concerns at all. Parents are treated as outsiders. They never told me that my child tested a whole grade level above. I received that info. after enrolling my child in an different school.

My son struggles with reading and spelling yet excels in Math and Science. GES teachers have worked really hard to give him extra help he needs.

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.
