My oldest son who is now 25 years old and an employees college grad. went to JCOS from preschool - 2nd grade. My youngest son(now 18 and going to college) went to JCOS for 7-9th grades. Both of my sons are gifted and needed the freedom to pursue their passions. School is a little weak on the academics so you have to be willing to think outside the testing, grade box.They both had wonderful experiences and gained lifelong skills in interpersonal relationship and self direction. Both have grown into caring, creative adults who have found their own direction. This school is about the people not the test scores. WONDERFUL place!!!

I am a current senior at JCOS. I have been going there for only three years, so I know what a traditional school is like. At traditional schools I spent hours a night working on homework, and dreaming of my future. high school was an experience I had to just get through, not one I planned to enjoy. Switching to JCOS made that enjoyment possible. From trips to the Sundance Film festival to a week long improv intensive in Chicago. I am one of the few students who can say I loved my high school years. I saw the college readiness, and test readiness scores were low. this all depends on how self directed the students are. I am guessing the test readiness is based on the CSAP, however many students who I know scored from a 25 to a 30 on the ACT. I personally was accepted to 3 of the four colleges I applied to, and was told by a former harvard admissions man that my application essay was one of the best he had seen. Don't assume the school is bad, test it out for yourself. Above all, dont let fears of not getting into college stop you from enjoying highschool.

This is an amazing school for a self starting student. Don't plan on dumping you kid off at an alternative school and expect them to graduate. Sure, they will last in the system but they'll get little or nothing from their education if YOU and YOUR child are not involved!

We visited 10 schools, from tradition, HGT to Montessori, before deciding on the Open School. The school was actually recommended to us by an educational psychologist. I am very happy with our decision! Our son qualified for HGT programs but we found that the learner centered, inquiry based approach and experiential education at JCOS suited his learning, social, and intellectual needs more than other programs. We loved that the teachers loop and they KNOW their students and their needs really, really well. Multi-aged classrooms and leveled grouping have challenged him, he has friends across grade levels, and the experiential elements have him asking us if he gets to go to school. It is not unusual for him to come home talking about opposing forces, flight, and rocket launching. The students are given the skills to problem solve and those skills are used across all subjects. The students problem solve openly with each other as well and it refreshing to see this kind of school community. We also love that the school is diverse. I would love to see more parental involvement. Perhaps this will change. Otherwise...awesome, unique, perfect fit for our inquisitive, bright kid!

JCOS allowed my daughter who has learning challenges to be the best she can be.

As a recent graduate, I can attest to the immeasurable power that the Open School has to change lives and encourage students to learn and achieve. Moving beyond standardization and quantitative methods of assessment, a personal approach is utilized in order to give students positive adult and community interactions that help them realize how to utilize resources and appreciate learning for the sake of learning itself. Now that I am attending college, I have noticed that it is much easier for me to engage in discussions than some of my peers, and also that my ability to think critically was honed before I set foot on campus. I could not be a stronger advocate for the Open School and I recommend it for any student who is self-directed, passionate and intrinsically motivated.

JCOS takes a different approach to learning that honor students, parents, and the community while encouraging involvement in the world, helping to shape it with your own special gifts and talents.

I was at Open my entire life, until last year I moved to Arizona to live with my dad. Now I'm a junior at Show Low High School. I took huge advantage of open school, and used it for the wrong reasons... It was a huge mistake, and I'm paying for it by not having any transcripts from my freshman year. Open is life changing... it changed my life. You will learn things you couldn't even imanage of learning. It wasn't for me... because I've come to discover that I am not a very self-directed person. Just please, don't look at JCOS as a joke. Because it isn't. It's an incredible, indescribable school.

I was once a former student (Grades 2-8.) I enjoyed my time here during my first 4 years here, but once I went into Middle School which is for some reason now called 'Pre-Walkabout,' I felt like I was very out of date with my education. To begin with, the lack of teacher controlled learning meant that there was less of lecturing periods, which meant for me, less learning. Some of the students were extremely disrespectful, and the discipline made me think that the administrators were listless most of the time. The students there are required to take trips, even if they like them or not in order to 'graduate' from the school. Classes are so easy to pass, you just need to write a half sheet of paper, and you're done.


Posted April 20, 2008

I am currently enrolled at Jefferson County Open School. I love it! The lack of teacher controlled learning is exactly what many kids need to open up with their self directedness, passions, and creativity. I personally could not stand being at a regular school, it is so controlled and very, very limited. But when i came to the open school i explored my passions, and i know that i will be much better off when i am an adult then i ever would be attending a regular school. Please don't bash the school just because it was not the fit for you or your children. Because i love it and would not rather be anywhere else.

JCOS is one of the finest schools in the nation. Our young peole are helped to discover learning as a life long passion. Teachers --- or Advisors --- as they are called, support, challenge and direct our kids to ever greater knowledge. My daughter, who has attended JCOS since kindergarten dual enrolled in a traditional school for two classes - her first ever experience in tradition school. Each class was an honors class and she finished the semester with a 3.79. JCOS prepares kids to know how to learn; they are taught to be self-directed in their learning and are open and respectful to others in their community environment.

Would be nice if someone dealt with the problem kids. Great concept. Losing something in the practice of it though.

I graduated fom this school and just wanted to share that I loved it. I got to do more things during my high school career than most people do in their whole life. I traveled, I learned, and I most important of all I discovered who I want to be. This school is not for everyone though. You have to be self driven, have a passion for learning, and want to succeed. Not everyone is like that. If you are not self driven you will not thrive at jcos. The teachers are amazing and will teach you so much, but they are not there to hold your hand and push you along, it's not day care.

my children are new this year to Jefferson, and so far their experience has not been good. I have never been so unwelcomed to a school before. I am currently looking for another school for my children to attend. I do not think children or parents should be spoken to in the manner that we have in these last few days of the new school year. I would hate to see what the rest of the year has instore for my children if they remain at this school.

I have been going JCOS for around 10 years now and I have been through the whole program (Elementary, Middle School, and High School). What I love about the high school is that if I interested in something I have the option to explore it through a passage. There are 6 passages (Logical, practical, creativity, adventure, career, global awareness) that are required in addition to your regular classes in order to graduate. Each passage is suppose to improve you intellectually, and personally. You get to choose the topic for each passage, but it has to fit your character, and several other people (students, and teachers) have to approve the passage. I recommend this school to any student who loves to learn and believes that learning can not be confined to a grade.

This school is a fantastic alternative to traditional schools. I have 3 children currently enrolled. Two of my children struggle with ADHD and traditional school was more like torture than education. Classes are propelled by students here and amazingly kids push themselves much harder than any teacher ever would. JCOS does not have 'extracurricular activities' because it is experential learning. Like any school issues arrise such as drugs but here they are dealt with and discussed with the students. Teachers are involved everyday with my kids and even call in the summer to say Happy Birthday. Wow.... My daughter is gifted and was floating through traditional school here she is challenged to not only meet her goals but to exceed them and to appreciate her weaknesses too. She has already finished several college courses and is only a sophmore. This school is for kids who want to learn not drop outs!

This school was not a good fit for me at all. The classes are incredibly easy and the discipline is horrible. I do not like the fact that that the school is extremely undiverse and has drug issues. For some students who are struggling or have been expelled it is a good fit. If you have a low tolerence for easy classes, drugs, discipline, no after school activities don't send your student here.

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.
