The 5th and 6th grade teachers are only interested in students who do not have to struggle for their grades. They do not understand that struggling is in and of itself a learning process. They are viciously mean spirited to males who have an opinion and girls who question too much.

I have to agree with the post regarding the current state of Stony Creek's administration. I've gone through more red tape and circles to ensure the safety of my disabled child than I care to say. That said, the teaching staff, aids and office assistants are class acts. I wouldn't have my child in this school, if not for them. A+ to them!

Most of the posts here are from a Stony Creek administration that is long gone - the current administration makes no effort to improve things for the students, often lying to get concerned parents off their backs. However, the teaching staff is truly the shining star that makes sending my three children there bearable. Most of the teachers truly are the best at what they do!

The teachers and staff are among the best I've seen around. They truly care about the kids and the families.

I find this school very child and parent friendly. The parents always feel involved in their child's education.

i think the curriculum is good but the school should pay for more stuff than the parents my 3 children go to this school and i end up paying for them to enjoy a public school. I find this very wrong!

This school had great faculty and administration from 1996-2002. My children are out of elementary school now, but stony creek had a lot more to offer than any other schools in the area.

When I attended Stony Creek Mike Conners was my principal, now my own children attend the school and it is such a wonderful feeling knowing he is still there and working so hard for our kids. This school also has a great department for the children with special needs. They go out of their way every day to help. I am very gratful for the staff at Stony Creek and will continue my three childrens education there until junior high school.

Mike Connors is one of the best in the business. He is the role model on how principals should be. The children should always come first. The only downside to the school is that the parents are not as involved as they should be and think the school should solve their problems wtih their children, that is not the school's job. The parents and school should work together and Mike is always available to anyone who asks. He is the best.

The principal at stony creek, Mr. Connors, is a wonderful principal who makes the children feel welcomed and seems to know them all. It is nice to have someone who puts the children first. My experiences with schools left me a little bitter, until we moved close to this school. It is a wonderful school with the motto, 'Children come first'.

The principal is wonderful. He goes out of his way to learn student's names, parent's names, and what the needs of the community are. Stony Creek is a child friendly school. It is clean, the teachers are caring, and it is a safe environment where children can and do learn.

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.
