Wish I had found this school sooner. We are really enjoying East Amazing Teachers !!!
—Submitted by a parent


Posted July 26, 2010

After attending two years of another Littleton Public School; my children are going into their third year of going to East. I have noticed a significant increase in their learning growth. They have been striving to gain more education after going to this school. The reading program is excellent! They have recently adapted to a incentive program to give children positive reinforcement for good behaviors. There are many caring parents that attend PTO nights, volunteers, and morning parent coffee gatherings. The staff is very friendly and always welcoming. There is a very good mix of cultures at the school. They even encourage the children to learn about the different countries that some cultures come from. Thumbs way high up for this school.

For a School population that consists of mostly low income families, East provides excellent schooling and produces high test scores

First off, the Principal is very professional and friendly. There is a good mix of young vs old teachers there. They recently renovated the school with new bathrooms and a top of the line security system. Outdoor cameras, access control and such. LPS district is top notch and is very serious about education.

New Principal this past year and the school is much better. He cares about the kids first and not just covering his or staffs backside. Like all schools there are teachers there just to be a robot (same lesson for the past 15 year and no flexibility) and draw there wage. But there are more then average number of teachers that care and try. This school is a core school, it has lots special programs and it draws from the district and not just the area causing larger then normal cultural diversification then other schools in the area. Very large apartment concentration in the area so there is a larger then normal student fluctuation making it more challenging for the teacher making sure everyone is on the same level. Lacking classrooms because of the special programs taking space. There is a great before and after school care and summer program.

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.
