Hygiene is a great elementary school. They teach the 'whole child' approach, and the arts programs (P.E.. Art and Music) certainly assist the children in grasping the material they are to learn...plus they get to play on a wonderful playground! We are not in the district, but we find the teachers caring and very good and worth the drive, The atmosphere (with so many examples of the children's works hanging in the hallways!) is quite delightful, the school is run in a very organized manner, and the administration and staff have a lot of energy and talents. Itt is a better school than our local one and has a very caring staff that teaches well..

Hygiene is not what it used to be. The new principle is more concerned with herself than the kids or the school. You can definitely feel that there has been a change and not for the better. I am taking my kids out of Hygiene and hope that if you are considering it, that you will think twice.

Hygiene is a great elemetary school. We are not in the district but bring our kids over everyday because it is a better school than our local one. The principal sets the tone. He is a wonderful caring man who hires great teachers. All the teachers our kids have had (6) have been very good at their jobs, keep control in the classroom, get the kids to learn well, are compassionate and have a sense of humor. We have really like ALL the classroom teachers! The building is clean and bright and cheerful, the curriculum is appropriate and challenging, the kids are taught respect for each other and not allowed to verbally insult each other or bully each other, the staff is friendly and helpful, I can't say enough good things about this school!

What an incerdible school! The Principal is outstanding, the teachers seem to love their jobs and the children. When you wak through the hallways they are bright and adorned with art projects. My daughter was failing in the other school and thrives here. I just received her report card and she received B's. What a difference an environment makes!

Everything about Hygine is great other than the huge class sizes. I realize good schools get attention but at what expense....the children's?

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.
