I am very displeased with the faculty of the school they are disrespectful and unprofessional!
—Submitted by a parent


Posted November 20, 2013

absolutely horrible, they blame the kid/parent for things they cannot control, make no accommodations, don't care to make relationships with kids or parents; dont follow IEP or 504 plans, have no understanding of concussion symptoms or executive functioning and don't care to learn

I have had all of my children attend this school over the past 5 years and I can tell you that it goes through a LOT of senior office staff changes. The teaches overall are VERY attentive and do their best with the time and number of students they have. They are very good about requesting students stay after when necessary, but it is a very structured curriculum and either the students get it, or they dont. The teachers really don't go into too much depth. Behavior and other structure is very controled and works well for the school.

I have had two students at Summit and both excelled personally and academically. Due to the encouragement they received from teachers who challenged them, they made honor roll and continue to thrive. They still speak highly of the teachers who knew they could accomplish their goals and how much more they enjoyed learning in a positive enviornment at Summit. The faculty is strict, but fair. Great school!

I love this school!!!! The teachers are kind and they treat you as individuals. The principals except no misbehavior what so ever! The students are kind and are very appropriate! Everywhere I look I see a kind smile. The teachers also treat you as a friend instead of a three year old. I totally recommend this school every middle schooler. I am soooo happy there!!

I would highly recommend this Middle School to anyone new moving to the area. The school is new and clean and the classrooms are well equipped with all technology needed for learning today. The teachers are well educated and treat each student as an individual rather than just another number. Each child receives individual attention. My daughter has greatly improved her study habits and grades since attending this school. There are also many after school clubs/activities for the kids to choose from.

Summit Ridge Middle School is a very fine school indeed! The teachers and staff were incredibly nice and gave each and every student the attention and time that they needed. Separating students into three houses or (colors) keep the school very organized. Also remodeling 3 times in it's ten years of being in existence gave the students a surprise and never kept the facility looking dull,boring, or the same as any other old school. Students that go to this school are very lucky to live in the location and at the time that this school has been in business. As an ending statement, Summit Ridge Middle school, Keep up the good- no wait great work!

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.
