We LOVE our school. The Administration is fabulous and very personable. They know each family and greet all the students every morning. It is like a small town and not just a school. The teachers have been amazing. They've gone that extra mile for each child. The Principal has helped us with our kids' special needs and making sure they feel safe and successful. She's the best! The front office treats everyone like they are the only person in the room and are very welcoming. The Paraprofessionals are top-knotch. My kids have been there for 7 years now and we have two more years left with the oldest. It will be a sad day when he graduates. I recommend this school for any family who wants great education, competent teachers and a strong administration. They all want the students to be successful because they look at each child as their own. Thanks, Littleton Prep Charter School! You're the best!

Run. You will be sorry for putting your children here. The school moved locations, and has run into the ground.

This school is a decent school, certainly better than what Denver schools offer. Their discipline is a bit absurd, particularly considering their lack of organization. Teachers are overall effective, but boasting about their 80% test pass rate, overlooks a 20% failure rate. Not ideal, but better than most these days. Definitely some wonderful, caring teachers. One horrible, pedantic one, however has ruined my child's self esteem with her criticism and threats, and callousness. Beware teacher DW. This is a nice school, just a bit more uppity about their record than a 20% fail rate justifies. Organization and communication is lacking, after school program pretty bad and ineffective. Kids are nice generally, no problems there. Morning drop off is insane (plan an extra 20 minutes to get through the line), school lunches are as gross and unhealthy as every school lunch program seems to be, but that is normal these days to consider chicken nuggets as"meat." With a few more years and weeding out a teacher or two, better communication and a good bus program, this could go from a decent school to a very good one.

At this school, you aren't the only advocate for your child's educational success. Our son is in his third year here. The educational standards are excellent and the teaching staff really work with the individual paces and learning styles of each child through their precision placement system. More importantly, the administration is outstanding. The principal has a keen interest in each child's success and individual learning needs. It's so incredible to feel that, as a parent, you aren't alone in the challenges your specific child faces in their scholastic progress. They promote and ensure consistent communication to make sure everyone is working for your kid's success.

I am very thankful for this school. The curriculum is great! My oldest is in 5th grade and has learned so much. The teachers and admin really care about my children and show it. my youngest is in the new pre-kindergarten class this year and I am very impressed by how much she has already learned this year! I know firsthand that there is not another school like this one. The school is strict, but the kids are there to learn, not socialize. I know that my children are in the best place to get the best education to set them up for the future! I am very pleased with this school and do not plan on changing schools. The new school this year is beautiful and very spacious, we love it! LPCS is the best!!

The curriculum is great and we love that kids moves into the next grade level in subjects they excel in. Tolerance for bad behavior is low, which is refreshing! They reward good behavior very consistently. As new parents we struggled to understand how things work, how to read the report cards, how to become involved with the school, etc. Nothing is very organized. The communication is poor at best. I tried contacting the principle multiple times with an issue and never got a response. There were many times I was waiting in line to speak with the front desk secretary and when students walked into the office, the secretary was rude and obviously frustrated with each student that came in; she didn't seem to mind that other parents were present and observed her unacceptable behavior. The monthly newsletters come out around the 15th instead of the 1st of the month. The website is rarely updated and contains old and expired information. They moved the school to a new location, which is an older warehouse. It does have a large playground. The parking is minimal and the process to drop off and pick up students is frustrating and way too time consuming.

This is been a great school for my 7th grader who I had pulled from OLOL during the 2013 school year. He was accepted right away and the teachers were so great to him and helpful. The communication is great and the teachers really care! I am so excited for my 7th grader who will be in 8th grade next year at L. Prep that he will be ready for High School because of the great academics they have there and the skilled teachers. My other three school age kids will also be attending next year for their first year at L. Prep and I am so excited for them!

This school is amazing. Both of my children have excelled in this environment. The teaching staff is excellent and easily accessible for a conversation about how my children can best move forward and overcome any issues that may arise. The PTO is working hard at creating a great social environment and community for our school. My husband and I are thrilled with the level of attention and support our children receive and are grateful that we found this school.

We absolutely love Littleton Prep. It's an excellent school. The Administration and Teachers make it an amazing place for children to thrive at learning and excel at life skills. It's a very positive, caring environment that emphasizes excellence and is open to all. Strongly recommend taking a look.

my school is great, i know that because i go there and have been going there for my whole life! i am going to seventh grade and the teachers are amazing and the students are very respectful. if you are looking for a school for your child, i promise you this is the school of my choice and the school of many parents choices, too! :)


Posted June 14, 2012

I Love This School. I Went To LPCS For 6th Grade And 1 Semester Of 7th Grade. I Wish I Could've Gone Until 8th But Couldn't Due To My Attendance. I Personally Think The Teachers There And The Environment Is Amazing. I Definitely Would Recommend This School.


Posted March 31, 2012

Lots of structure for children as well as the parents. If your child does well in this kind of environment then he or she will excel academically, and the curriculum is excellent. There seems to be a disconnect between teachers and administration. The parent's organization, POPS, exists for the most part to raise money to give a very large yearly gift to the school and is run by the teachers, although there is always a 'token' parent on the board. You will not find well run social programs at this school although they half heartedly try. I have no idea what the comment about a baseball and drama activites means because these also are 'kinda' activites for just a few students. The atmosphere is very strict, days are very long, so a lot of energy is put into disciplining those kids that can not meet those standards, so even if your kid does well in this environment he or she might get minimal attention.

This is a great school! We have been so thrilled with our decision to send our children here. Our first child transfered to LPCS after a few years at our neighborhood school-- this has been a HUGE improvement. The structure is fabulous, and the teachers and staff are wonderful.

Posted May 13, 2010

After reading previous comments I am extremely dejected-- it sounds like Littleton Prep is the best school with wonderful teachers and excited students. My experience has not been great. My son has gone from a high performing student to a sullen demoralized kid because of the excessive and overbearing discipline enforced by the school. My kid who never saw the inside of a principal's office in his previous school, was suspended twice-once for talking back to the Dean ( disrespectful, yes- but age appropriate for a 12 year old), and most recently suspended for two days for talking in class. This school is great apparently for kids who start in kindergarten and become part of the school culture early. But transfer kids beware- the administration does nothing to help new kids acclimate and are quick to single kids out as troublemakers with suspension and exclusion used to enforce discipline.

I can't say enough good things about this school. Beyond the outstanding education our daughter is getting, the school has such a warm and inviting feeling... I am amazed every day at the quality of the principal and staff. They truly care about their students, and it shows.

My daughter just finished Kindergarden 2008-2009. We love Littleton Prep! The teachers, enviornement and education are above avarage. It is amazing how much she learned and we hope to continue with Littleton Prep until 8th Grade.

I have been an active parent at Littleton Prep for three years and find the longer I keep my children there the more disappointed I become. I will not be bringing my children back next year because I find that the current principal in far too uneducated(ask for her credentials) and inexperienced to hold the school to the standards we all hope for our children's education. Upon trying to discuss several issues either in reguards to my younger or older child I found a genuine uninterest from the administration and sadly the teachers. I have seen dramatic changes over the last two years- good staff and administrationa are leaving as well as the children are becoming more high need. Becuase the good teachers are leaving the quality students are leaving as well.

My children both attend Littleton Prep and it is an excellent school! The structure and discipline is well formed, yet compassionate and beneficial. The curriculum is excellent, and the staff go above and beyond to make it a wonderful learning environment for children. There is plenty of communication between parents and teachers, in fact, a certain amount of parent involvement is expected at this school. And anytime I have felt I've not gotten enough feedback, or had a concern about my child - the teachrs and staff have been more than willing to listen, communicate or find a solution to the problem. While I strongly suspect my very precocious, active and easily bored child would be labelled a 'troublemaker' at other local schools, both my children thrive at LPCS. There is no reason to be bored - no child's needs or abilities are overlooked or unmet. It's great!

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.

The different student groups are identified by the Colorado Department of Education. If there are fewer than 16 students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

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.
