Larkspur is an amazing school with great teachers and a fabulous parent involvement. The PTO and Teachers make this school.
Wonderful small school. The appeal is that the class sizes are small as compared to many schools in the area and there is a very nice family atmosphere. It does seem that there are more programs offered for children that are below grade level as opposed to those that are above grade level. A new curriculum is being introduced that is Environment Based and will hopefully address the above level group.
my daughter addends this school it seems most of the parents I have spoken to feel there kids are behind. I feel that the teaching at this school is not what we saw or hoped for!
Larkspur has so much to offer! When relocating to Colorado we chose Larkspur area not only for the beautiful scenery, but for our kids to attend Larkspur Elementary for all the great opportunities it has to offer. I have been impressed with the state-of-the-art tech lab, art program, PE equipment, and science projects. Students at Larkspur also have the opportunity to join enrichment classes offered during two different session during the year. Band and Choir are also offered before school. They have an active student council! There is also a program called Apple Core that students can apply to be a part of that allows them to work on Apple computers to create imovie/DVD. Larkspur is a small school with a lot to offer.
What a fantastic school. We moved here from the top schools in the D.C. area and found Larkspur to be equal and in some subjects above our previous school district. The faculty is fabulous and parental involvement is incredible. TOP NOTCH and so friendly. A small school with soooo much to offer.
A great school that really gets involved with the community and parents.
Larkspur is an excellent school. It is likeone big family at Larkspur. From the minute you walk into Larkspur you feel at home. With a strong PTO. The principal, staff and teacher are excellent, the best ART teacher in the state of Colorado can be found a t Larkspur.
We have been at Larkspur Elementary for over 9 years. We clearly love the school and community. Although it has grown in size over the years, it is still a very homey school & great place for the children to exceed. Would hate to lose the principal, he is wonderful! Great after school program and assemblies.
I believe as a previous student of this LES, that this is one of the best places a child could grow up and learn in. The teachers are wonderful and the atmosphere is homey. I recommend this school to any child.
An outstanding public school with an above normal level of parent and senior volunteer involvement. All teachers and staff are enthusiastic and supportive in every child's education. Extracurricular activities that my child was involved in included arts, band, and an excellent theatre arts program. I have found everyone at Larkspur extremely focused on helping my child succeed academically and emotionally in life.
