I went to this school for many years K-5 and in lots of ways i felt scared some days to leave the house. I was bullied they did not teach me proper math and when I went to middle school being in lower math class kind of ruined school for me. I became sick, depressed and now not being able to continue with this terrible start at my school and other problems this caused , I'm changing schools in doubt my dreams of being an engineer will ever be witnessed. I remain sad and woeful I had to start with this path.

Longmont Estates is such a positive place. It really feels like a community of parents, students and staff. The teachers all go above and beyond for the students and families. The teachers love the kids-it's not a job, it's their lifestyle, and that is what I want for my kids.

I love Longmont Estates Elementary because of the involved parent community. The teachers strive to accomodate your child regardless of their needs.

Longmont Estates is an adequate neighborhood school. Each grade has its 'star' teachers and some teachers that have their challenges with the kids. The music program is very good. We find that the school could more adequately address the needs of gifted students. We have been disappointed with the leadership of the principal. In specific situations we feel that he has brought negative attention to the school in the community and did not appropriately represent facts to parents through written and verbal communication.

We've been impressed with how involved the teachers are at LEES. The new music teacher is top-notch, and the art teacher is also excellent! Our children have been very happy at LEES.

great teachers,principal and staff. parent involvement is encouraged and appreciated. parents with kids in special education need to be vigilant that work is completed and not hesitate to go the administration if problems aren't resolved quickly.

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.
