Insight is about as bad as the last school I attended. I can't access any of my classes right now and my grades have slipped BIG time about it. I have emailed my counselor, and she told me to call support, Never got a response, and now my father is getting emails that I'm not attending school when I kinda can't :/ The teachers are nice but you never get emails directed towards you all their emails goes out to every student.

I have been a student of Insight for this first year in Colorado. I would not say I have had any success in Insight. There have been ongoing technical problems and I have not been able to access the Program. The faculty only contact me once or twice a month about the problem. I suggest parents try the program out before starting this school.

I like insight school of Colorado. Yes, we had problems at the first of the year, but I do believe that they are fixed now. It's a great school, you talked to your teachers once or twice a week and someone called a iMentor. This is Insights first year in the state of Colorado.

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.
