We open enroll our triplets and chose Littleton schools for their education. Elementary was Ralph Moody and middle is Euclid. We couldn't be happier with the staff, curriculum, attention to individualism and the Every Student a Leader program. Our children feel challenged with very little pressure and receive needed guidance from the faculty. Euclid also offers self motivation and problem solving, which is just how I would like our children to take into the "real world" that and waits them. Very high marks given to Euclid Middle School!!!

My son is in 7th grade and he is doing well. He likes the school and I personally like the way teachers help my son accomplish his goals. I like the atmosphere in this school. The teachers and the staff are very professional.

We are new to Colorado and open-enrolled our 8th grade daughter at Euclid. We have found the administrators, staff and teachers to be wonderful and the atmosphere at this school is very positive. Our daughter has made many new friends and is taking part in several extracurricular activities that the school offers. It is truly a good school and worth a tour if you are considering enrolling your child here!

"EVERY STUDENT A LEADER" is a one of a kind program! There is nothing else like it in the country - well done Euclid!


Posted September 15, 2012

Second child open enrolled and loving it. Both of our children have loved Euclid because of the accepting environment and the engaging classes. The administration and staff partner with the students and their parents to deal with each situation appropriately. The leadership program has complimented their building focus well and chanced the way kids talk about community and themselves as members of that community.

Fantastic school. My student feels safe here. We love the Leadership program and feel that it makes Euclid stand out as the best middle school in the area. I am proud of all the accomplishments of this school.

My daughter is in 6th Grade at Euclid Middle School, and she is thriving! We are delighted with everything the school has to offer. The principal is fabulous and has a real understanding of middle school students. He took the time to talk with my daughter when she started and to address her concerns and encourage her. He is incredibly insightful. The teachers are fantastic and each one has taken time to connect with my daughter and get to know her. They are dynamic and challenging and they make sure that every student is performing to their ability. The after school activities are well-organized and well attended. The culture at Euclid is respectful and kind--a perfect place to grow and develop. Euclid has a unique leadership program that spans all three years of middle school and all students are encouraged to participate. Euclid is structured with "cores" where students have a smaller group of kids that they become familiar with. This is much better than a junior high model where bullying and cliques are allowed to thrive. If you have not looked at Euclid Middle School yet, I highly encourage you to! It outshines any other middle school in our district.

Not sure where the person below is coming from. Sure, there can and will be some level of bullying at any school. However, I have found that Euclid's administration and teachers promote and implement a program that encourages positive behavior. The overall atmosphere is one of respect and kindness. I feel that this is an excellent school with great academics as well as extra-curricular. It's nice to see a school that seems to understand the needs of the middle school child. So many schools these days try so hard to look good on paper, with their test scores and other accolades. Euclid is not only great on paper, but also great inside the building. I'm happy to have my child experience it.

My child has been bullied at this school for over a year now. The staff doesn't respond to my concerns. The admin office is very rude. I have never had a parent teacher conference because they have "too many students". The teachers have no relationship with my child. I am extremely disappointed.

Fantastic school. Euclid strives to provide a balanced, well rounded education including music, arts and athletics along with a rigorous academic program. The teachers really care about their kids.

I've been told recently that the District is under the impression that the distance between Euclid and Powell Elementary are almost the same. We live on E. Panama Dr., it takes 15-20 minutes to walk to Euclid, it takes us 15-20 minutes to drive to Powell. I think there is quite a difference in the distance between these two Elementary Schools. Euclid is a Blue Ribbon School. The programs they have there are excellent, including their afternoon programs.

The teachers and staff members are very kind and caring toward us students! but one of the downers are lunches! cause its gross havein the same lunch every week and ive been goin there for 3 years and its old! I think we could add a fruit bar or somethin healthy and mix the lunches up, at lease once a month or somethin like that. I also think we need to rasie our school spirt, like maybe add a football team or a little pom/cheerleading team!

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.
