My son is only in Pre-K but he LOVES it! The teacher cares for her students and teaches them how to reacted with one another. He has had so much fun learning his ABC's and 123's =) He comes home singing and smiling. The family loves this school and my daughter can't wait to turn 4 so she can go.

My kids have finished two years in Lochbuie and we love it. The teachers are great. They communicate well and really care about my boys.

My kids have been going to this school since we moved here 5 years ago. What a GREAT school! The principle is wonderful,so are the teachers (most anyway)... always very accesible and communicative with us, working as partners in the education of our kids. MUCH better than the Denver school system. We feel very fortunate and our kids love it too.

This school is atrocious! They don't feel the need to inform you when your child is having difficulties learning, their only concern is how many friends your child has. The teaching staff is inept! The only way your child will get a some what decent education at this school is if you pay for private tutors to actually teach your child.

This school is great. Lochbuie Elementary staff is great in keeping up with new teaching techniques and offer a lot of advice to parents. My kindergartner is learning so much everyday that I am shocked with amazement of how quickly he is learning. Two Thumbs Up for Lochbuie Elementary!

This is a very 'good' school, they work hard to encourage each child at their own level. The teachers are involved, and are willing to involve parents as much as the parents are comfortable. They have music, art and other programs for the children, with very dedicated teachers. This is a small school with a small school feel, friendly and comfortable. They have good books and computer coverage, and do well to educate the children safely in today's high tech world. I would caution, some discipline rules may be too lax for some parents. Some violent actions have gotten some very mild reactions from Staff members. Overall, they try hard.

This is a warm friendly school where I slways feel welcome. Students are 'under control' and happy. I also know that inspite of its higher minority and poverty status, it is one of the better performing schools in the distict. I would like to see more offered for advanced students, but at least there is 3-6 g/t program and teachers work hard to understand individual students.

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.
