As a student of Cache La Poudre, I personally love it! I have friends at most of the other junior high schools in the district. From what I hear and see, students at CLP are very happy. Plus, being a smaller school you can get more help from teachers with assignments. You can also stay after school for Pirate Tutorial, which is basically a two hour study hall. Overall I think the disciplinary portion is adequate. I can't really find a flaw with CLP. I think this is one of the best options for a school.

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.
