Posted May 9, 2013

The schools in Ignacio are terrible. I was a student from K-12, and my education suffered, big time. Few of the teachers care, the cirriculum is bogus, I got NO help when I tried to talk to a counselor about college options, and was told throughout high school I wasn't worth the effort because I "wasn't going to graduate anyway". I learned most things on my own, outside of the schools. I WANTED to learn - they just don't have much to offer.

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.
