Excellent school in every area! The principal stands out in his enthusiasm, engagement and dedication to the school. My daughter learned a ton in kindergarten and absolutely loved her teacher. The staff is super hard working and welcoming. The community is great and the school presents a fun environment where learning and hard work come naturally which is how it should be in elementary school; learn to love school!

Stober not only has a strong, educated and forward-thinking principal but also outstanding teachers that really care about their students and want to help them learn. The community is outstanding!! Not the parents (who are very involved in the school activities) but the community members around the school. We love Stober!

I think Stober Elementary is a fantastic school. The teachers and the principal are caring and considerate. The staff is amazing and makes an effort to know your name. I feel welcomed when I enter the school, and I know my child feels the same way. I am looking forward to the next 6 years I have children in this elementary school. Keep up the good work Stober!!!

We think that Stober is a wonderful place to educate our child - the staff is kind and caring. The curriculum is top notch, and teachers work together to make sure that students learn. Issues are dealt with immediately, and communication is effective. We are proud to have our student at Stober and will continue to recommend this wonderful small school to others.

Teachers and principal put on a front. They treat kids as a number, and do not know how to treat children who are not average. My child has been having issues with this school the past 2 years. This is the first time he has had school issues. They have their favorites(students whose parents are on the board.exc.) and all others are left behind. My child will not be back next year.

Stober is a great school. The staff really knows the kids, and it's a small school, both of which lead to a strong sense of community. The academic expectations are very differentiated by ability, so each child makes great progress from where they started. My son's teacher is engaged and excited. She is very good on building on each child's strengths and very in tune with the different styles of learning. We open enrolled after having done a lot of research into all the neighboring schools, and we couldn't be more thrilled with the result.

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.
