My daughter has done excellent in this school as well! She has been in the district for 3 years and has really thrived educationally and emotionally. There are really wonderful educators in the district that care about our children. I agree with the previous parent that we all need to be involved and continue to make this a great place to raise our families!

I'm am very disappointed with this school. It is made up of mostly Hispanic kids that hate white kids. They get away with racial comments all the time, and my kids are tormented on a daily basis! I have always taught my children to treat everybody with respect, and ironically mine get none!

This is my daughter's 3rd year in this school and she has really had some great teachers!! A lot of people cut down our schools, but I believe my daughter is right on track and that the teachers here care a lot about their students. Get involved and make the schools even better!

I have a daughter attending second grade at WPES. The staff is wonderful! They care so much about the students and they work hard to prove it! I believe my child has had a valuable year at this school. I rate it a three, instead of a four, because I think the building itself needs an upgrade, as does the rest of Leadville.

I have a 2nd grader with extreme behavioral issues and this school has been absolutely wonderful at working with us to develope an IEP in record time. They have been extremely dedicated, cooperative and understanding. I would recommend this school to anyone who would listen.

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.
