Green Mountain is in my opinion the best school anyone could go to as a public school, not only dose it have a strong community base but the relashionships you can build with teachers us out standing Green Mountain has the reputation of the druggie school but what school doesn't have a drug problem? Our student body couldn't be any better we have a great family feel to it. Honestly it comes down to how hard you try to become apart of this school all my teachers were great to me and helped me when I need trouble those same teachers were the ones everyone said was mean. Green Mountain is no D'Evelen but to succeed here youre going to have to try just as hard as anyone else.

GREEN MOUNTAIN IS AWESOME! It is community based, with tons of parent and community involvement from everything such as its annual Ram Run to the parent run After-Prom Committee! Many of the teachers are GM graduates themselves and genuinely care about their students. They are open to meet with before school,, especially on Wednesdays (starts 8:30) and Thursdays (starts 8:00,) as well as after school. Though the facilities are older, the new Beautification Club has been busy planting greenery, painting, and sprucing things up! There are tons of clubs/activities students can take advantage of, with new ones popping up each year, such as POMS, FBLA, and BIONIC (and MANY more)! With the Academy Program (the only one in Jeffco), students can focus on their interests/future by taking classes in their pathway(s) and then graduate with special recognition for completion. AP and Honors classes are available for numerous classes, providing the student the option as to which classes they would like to pursue with more vigor. Students are very accepting of one another, and there are no specific cliques or exclusions. GM has become my home away from home--I love it here! GO RAMS!

Love Green Mountain High School!! I have a graduate and a current sophomore. The pride and passion for education in this school amazes me everyday, I can't imagine sending my children anywhere else. A fabulous neighborhood high school that has found a solution for all level of students in the Academy Program...this program allows for the high achieving students to excel and for those students who struggle with motivation to find the relevance they need. If you are looking for a quality well-rounded high school education for your student you need to visit Green Mountain!

Green Mountain is by far the best school around. It is Jefferson County's well kept secret. Great close community of teachers, parents, students and unbelievable caring and dedicated principal. The academy program offers a range of classes that no other school in Colorado offers. Kids have the opportunity to take AP and Honors courses, earn college credit and have a weighted GPA. The atmosphere is positive, everyone supports each other and there is a strong parent community. Green Mountain is like a small town nestled in between the city and mountains - great diversity and great kids.

I would not send my children anywhere else and highly recommend Green Mountain to any family looking for a well-rounded quality education for their student. The passion for teaching is amazing. The administration has created a collaboration of community businesses and parents that has become a model for other Jeffco Schools. The school pride and caring student environment is one of their best assets. Green Mountain offers a mix of rigor and relevance that provides the opportunity for students to be successful in whatever they choose to pursue following graduation.

I am one of the many parents that has moved my student to another Jeffco school. Gr Mt is our neighborhood school, but it is horrible. Just as others have stated. The staff are rude or don't care. Parent involvement is only wanted when the school needs money. We tranferred to another Jeffco school. There are many of the same problems, but not as severe.

Honestly I think that Green Mountain is not the best school. The staff are rude and disrespectful.and most of the teachers aren't that great. The school is a dump and really trashy and not very clean. The students aren't that great ethier. Because of bullying issues and beyond. The staff doesn't take care of things like they should. So everyone that goes there is a stoner or higher than their own grades. And staff doesn't take good responsibility and are harsh and rude.

The teachers, most of them are great and caring. The new administration is lacking guidance both for the students and the teachers. The schools enrollment was down 400 in 11/12 school year. This upcoming school year 12/13 many parents are opting not to send their kids back. This school needs a strong principal to get this school back on track.

Overall, this school is good. It has all the same problems that every other public school has (chilches, bullying) just as much as any other school. I have to say though. the comments about cliches are true but bullying is a little less than ordinary. cliches, in my mind , are based totally off economic class or popularity 9sports clubs, going to proir schools w/people before.) There are many opportunities like clubs, AP/Honors classes, but like it everyother school I have seen, the student have to motivate themselves. What parents don't realize also that parents have to play a role and kind-of restrain their chidren, aka parent. Though there have been many changes to the county budget . this school has taken them in stride and hasdone the best with what they have.

Green Mountain high school is undergoing major changes. WIth a new principal and three new assistant principals in 2011, the reviews about poor leadership I have read seem obsolete. The teachers I know care deeply about this school and its students. There are dozens of student clubs and organizations who work to welcome new students, help students in need, build school spirit and get everyone involved. The student body is changing too, and becoming more diverse than ever. I am proud to be a part of the Green Mountain community.

This is overall a great school. As with all schools there are cliches but unlike other schools people have an understanding with each other and there is almost no bullying. Some teachers are very nice and communicate with students and others are in the completely wrong profession for them. Admins are a whole different issue; they are horrible. There is no personal connection and when student come to them with something it is as if its an inconvience for them to help a student. The security really cares about the students though. They get to know them personally and are always looking out for them. For students who truely care about their education the Advanced Placement classes at GMHS are spectacular with teachers that truely know their stuff.

I have two daughters at this school. I think they have received an execptional education, and this would be supported by academic scholarships offered, and scores on the ACT which place my oldest in the top percentages compared to other students across the nation. My experience is that the majority of the teachers do a great job, there are a couple that do not relate as well with the students, or struggle in teaching to different learning styles. Overall, they truly want the students to master content, and are enthused about student learning. My middle daughter has a learning disability, she has had to learn to advocate for herself, but her teacher's do make accommodations that allow her to be a successful student. There are problems in any high school, so much of it for any student, is who they choose as friends, and how much effort are they willing to put forth. We need to learn to support community, through good and bad, if you do our children can learn a lot about perseverance, caring for others, see the resilience within themselves. With their BIOIC club, and other programming, they do want to help develop educated citizens, with great character.

The culture at this school is one where the elite athletes and students rule the school. It is very exclusive, and new kids or different kids generally feel very unwelcome. Unless you are in one of these elite cliches, your kid could be in trouble. A lot of good teachers but the Admin is the worst I've every seen.

Some of the teachers I encountered at Parent/Teacher Conferences appeared mute today. Since Green Mountain High School already has quite a number of negatives, (the school itself is a dump, there is very little school spirit and little leadership), the teachers have usually made up for it's shortcomings. Today, I have to wonder if some of it's teachers are in the wrong business and will certainly do "my homework" to check out all the other educational opportunities in the area..

I think GM is a great school if your student is self motivated and enjoys a challenge. If they have to get motivation from somewhere else, the teachers have so many students and the counselors are spread so thin that your student will recieve no help. The administrators do not understand the students at all and are very rude and distant. There is alot of tension between the teachers and administrators. The administrators tend to treat everyone like children, teachers and students alike. If you want to interact with children I suggest you work at an elementary school not a high school.

I am not impressed nor satisfied with my daughter's enrollment at Green Mountain. I chose to choice enroll her and commute 3 miles farther than her home school because I was told it was a great high school. Not. The teacher's are insensitive, the activity leaders are clickish and standoffish and don't try to include other parents. It's horrible. I am considering withdrawing my daughter from this school.

I cannot say enough about the support of staff at this school. My student transferred to Green Mountain from another local high school where the support was not given. The student is involved in sports and has had to work hard to achieve his academic eligibility status, the support and encouragement received was above and beyond all expectations and I have noted a marked difference in confidence and self esteem. I can truly say thank you to a staff from coaches, athletic director and counselors, and teachers who all did more than their part to contribute to a student being successful and being validated.


Posted January 9, 2009

GM is a good solid neighborhood school. I disagree with the negative comments made here. The AP classes and teachers are exceptional. It is a big school, however, with typical big school issues. My kids have enjoyed the school and their CSAP scores and AP test scores show they are getting a good education.

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.
