Indian Peaks Elementary School1

St Vrain School District has succeed in creating a Spanish speaking only school with no diversity. Since 2007 the percentage of hispanic population went from 50% to 91% in 2015. If the district created a school that exculded Hispanic there would be an uproar. It is billed as a bilingual school but all the monatary resources are allocated to teaching spanish speakers english. English speakers were never taught any spanish. When we purchased our home we were excited that our son could walk the block to our neighborhood school. After my son had been bullied for 3 years and could hardly read we had to transfer him to Burlington Elementary in 3 grade where it took him 2 years to catch up his reading. This situation has also led to huge discipline problems with the Indian Peaks kids at Sunset MS. I strongly discourage anyone from sending their child to this school.
Indian Peaks serves children from an area of town that wants for involved parents. Their curriculum is adequate for the average student, leaving out children who needs may differ from the rest of their class.
