Mt. Peak is a fantastic school. Our son has been going there for the last two years and is excelling in school. He went from having a hard time reading the most simplest of words to now reading at grade level. The teachers are great and really care about the students. The low student/teacher ratio helps to ensure my son gets the attention he needs to learn what is being taught. Extra bonus points for Mt. Peak as well as they make learning fun. There is PE everyday, which is a must for our son. I also love the fact that they are teaching music and French to give the children a complete, well rounded learning experience.
We had heard about this school through a friend and went and toured it while looking for a school for our preschooler. We fell in love with it right away and knew it was a perfect match. We love the small classes, the feel of the school being a family and all of the teachers. We are so glad we went with mountain peak!
A small, private school with a wonderful staff that is dedicated to the development of each student's mind and body. Our child loves the teachers, administrators, and staff. The teaching staff is very experienced and classes are small enough that each student's learning needs can be addressed. We are very happy with Mountain Peak and we see the results on a daily basis in the continuing development of our child.
Mountain Peak Private School is an amazing place! I have two boys at Mountain Peak, 2nd grade and 4th grade. Both are doing work above their grade level. Their teachers go above and beyond to help each student excel. The school has PE classes every day, which my boys love, along with weekly music, art and French classes. I could not be more happy about the well rounded education my kids are receiving at Mountain Peak Private School, and they are excited for school every day.
Both of our kids have attended Mountain Peak since kindergarten. Our daughter went on to middle school last year and has tested into the gifted and talented program there. She is a well rounded person who excels in social and athletic situations as well as in the classroom. Our son is currently in 5th grade at Mountain Peak and is testing two grade levels above normal in all subjects. He was relatively shy and would never have been pushed to this level if he were in the public school system. Now he is ready to follow his sister to middle school and we feel he couldn't have been better prepared. "Average" wasn't what we wanted for our children, which is why we chose Mountain Peak.
Our daughters spent two years at Mountain Peak before we moved out of state. We miss this school badly and think about it almost every day! The small class sizes are a truly invaluable benefit for children. There is simply nothing that can compete with the small classes and individualized curriculum. Teachers at Mountain Peak are more energetic because they're not overwhelmed. The teachers at MPPS were the greatest, enthusiastic and dedicated, they cared about the kids and you could feel the effects of that daily. Our girls miss the daily P.E. that was based around fun activities and the French classes. The feeling of community and ability to see your children's teachers and interact with them every day is also a treasure that you just can't get with a larger class size. My daughters simply thrived at Mountain Peak and I would recommend this school with highest confidence.
Having spent 7 years at Mountain Peak enjoying small class sizes and individual attention, we were concerned about our son entering a large middle school with what seemed like enormous class sizes. We needn't have worried. Academically our son has excelled in many areas and is finding that he is often ahead of his peers. Socially he has made a wide range of friends and as a member of the Student Council has helped organize a lot of the social events. We feel that Mountain Peak helped nurture our son into a a well rounded, confident young man with an ability to make a wide range of friends. The education he received during those crucial elementary years prepared him well for his transition into public middle school life. With this success, it was a "no brainer" to send his siblings!
Happy Transition to Middle School: When our son grew up and finished MPPS, we were faced with middle school. We were worried about the transition from a small family oriented school to a large impersonal public school with massive class sizes. Our son was used to lots of attention and loving care, with a small class size at MPPS. Could he adapt? YES! The skills, both academic and social, that he learned at MPPS are serving him well. Academically, the middle school courses are easy for him because of his great background at MPPS. Socially, he immediately made many friends at his new school and is participating in a variety of school activities. Because of the small class size at MPPS, he learned that he could not hide in the background or just get by, but learned to take part. He is confident and accustomed to interaction with a variety of people of all ages. Not only has our son made a nice transition from MPPS to middle school, but his friends from MPPS who attend other middle schools also report similar positive experiences.
We love Mountain Peak Private School and highly recommend it. We have two children who attend MPPS and both have excelled beyond all of our expectations. It is a small school and this allows the teachers to completely individualize the teaching for each student. Because of this, each student is able to learn at the best rate for them. This results in the students learning more in a year here than they would learn in a year at the local public school. We know this because we considered sending our oldest to our local public school for fifth grade thinking that he would make some friends there before middle school. However, after talking with the teachers at the public school, we realized that our child was more than a year ahead in math, spelling and reading compared to what was being taught there. We decided to keep him here because we felt he would lose a year of learning if we transferred him to public school. Students who are gifted and maybe bored in the public school will excel at MPPS. In addition, students who struggle in public school (due to any number of reasons) will thrive here due to the excellent teachers and individualized instruction. Come see for yourself!
We moved to CO two years ago, and were looking for a school for our then Kindergarten age son. We had looked at several public and private schools in the area, and after seeing what else was out there (a very scary experience) we decided on MPPS. Our experience has been nothing short of wonderful! Our son is flourishing at MPPS, the staff is incredible, and we feel confident that our son is getting the absolute best education possible.
We have our 4 year old son in preschool at MPPS. The teachers and staff are all excellent and very friendly. This is a small school which allows staff to really get to know familys and students. We are greeted by name by the principle, Mr. Buckett and Brenda, at the front desk every morning. The also have a top notch curriculum which includes zoo phonics and individualized learning as well as daily PE for all kids which is fantastic. We are looking forward to next year when our son goes to pre-K!
We are parents of two students at Mountain Peak Private School and would recommend this school to parents who want a superior education for their children. Our children were attending a different private school in Boulder and we started to notice our older child was falling behind in math. When we found MMPS we moved the children without hesitation. The class sizes are small and learning is individualized. My son is now ahead in math and has a new confidence in his learning. This school goes beyond both academically and socially for the kids. Our children love school and our 5th grader tells me often that he is so glad he goes to Mountain Peak where he is able to learn and not feel like he can't do math. This school is such an amazing place and the tuition is half of what we were paying at the other private school. Our children will be ready to excell in the future because the are getting such a great foundation now. We cannot say enough about this fantastic school.
My daughter needed special help because she has ADHD. She has been at Mountain Peak Private School for a year and it has been so good for her. The small class size of 15 students and wonderful caring teachers have really helped her reach her potential. She has gone from having a very negative view of herself to really believing in herself. Her self confidence is soaring and she is very happy at Mountain Peak Private Schooll. It is the best choice we could have made for our daughter! It's a good value for the money as well.
We have been so pleased with MPPS. Our children are both excelling and are performing well above grade level. We love the small class room sizes and the parrental involvement is exceptional.
MPPS is awesome. My barely 5 year-old preschooler is already reading and comprehending what she reads. Also, they have a good curriculum for preschoolers too, with math, science, and social studies. The teachers at MPPS are open about both the child's progress and short commings, and the teacher works together with parents to make sure the child succeeds.
My son just started school here this year and he simply loves it. He gets the individual attention that he needs and the freedom to excel in the areas he is passionate. He enjoys PE every day and the most important thing to me is that he enjoys going to school every day.
This is our 5th year at the school and I so glad we found it. Both my children have been reading since Pre K and continue to learn above their grade levels in many subjects. The teachers are so enthusiatic and caring which creates a fantastic family atmosphere. Each day I drop off and collect my children from the classroom door which allows me to interact with my childrens teachers on a daily basis, learn what is happening in the class and discuss any work to be completed. As far as I am concerned this is one of the best schools in the area and well worth the money.
My son has been attending Mountain Peak for the last four years and I couldn't be happier. Classes are small, structured and children are given the attention they deserve as opposed to being forgotten in the system. My son has been reading since Pre-K and continues to flourish each and every year well beyond his grade level. There is no better value out there for a private school and the staff and owners are caring, honest people who take the time to get to know each family.
I couldn't say enough great things about this school. Classes are small and structured with enough playtime and physical activity to keep it fun. The teachers engage your child at his or her level. Preschoolers are taught Zoophonics which kids pick up quickly and easily. I don't know of any other schools in the area that use it. There is no pressure to move beyond grade level, but if your child takes on more by herself, kids are encouraged to read early. It is a safe and positive environment, the after-school care is first-rate and they offer summer camps. My son has severe food allergies but their sytem lets me feel secure. The cost is so reasonable compared to other schools in the area. My daughter was challenged, learned something new, and practiced her skills daily at Mountain Peak. It has been a great experience for our family.
I have 2 children at MPPS and my 3rd starts next year. We have been attending MPPS for 4 years. It is the best school in Longmont, by far. MPPS offers excellent teachers and a fantastic, well rounded education. My 4 year old is starting to read already in the pre-K program. My 6 year old 1st grader is doing 2nd grade math and reads chapter books. On top of all this, the teachers ensure my children get plenty of physical activity each day. In addition to the great education, the school provides a fun and friendly environment for my children, so they enjoy going to school each day. Furthermore, MPPS offers a great before and after school care program. I love knowing that if I cannot be there, they are having fun, not sitting in the principals office after school. I highly recommend MPPS.
