As a parent of a child that I pulled from this school, I agree with the previous poster as the 'wave' of posts is suspicious for the same reasons stated. I will say that the level of professionalism I experience with my child's current school in the district is superior to what I ever experienced with Flagstaff, and I share that only because I now have a basis for comparison.

I have two elementary children at Flagstaff, and have been there for four years. I am also a very involved parent, volunteering in excess of 80 hours per year. I believe Flagstaff is providing an excellent education to both, one who is twice-exceptional (very gifted and ADHD). The science-based core knowledge curriculum is very challenging and both have what I used to consider excessive amounts of homework to do on a regular basis. We have gotten used to it, and these two will be well prepared for the load required of an International Baccalaureate course of study. Communications from the school do require parents to seek out information on-line, and while this can be cumbsome, it is always available. It was the first school in the district to use Infiite Campus (on-line grade-keeping system) so I always know how my kids are performing academically. The best public school in the district.

I have two children at Flagstaff Academy including one in Middle School. I'm writing to counter allegations by a previous poster who states that the Middle School curriculum is inappropriately difficult and that students are cheating. The curriculum appropriately challenges my child. I am certainly not doing the work for my child, he is not cheating, and he takes responsibility for his own work. My children love going to school. Our experience at Flagstaff has been positive for five years. Our principal, Andrew Moore, is an outstanding individual, an excellent leader, and a creative thinker.

This school has the Core Knowledge curriculum and ability grouping, modeled after the successful Peak to Peak school, and so much more. The Shurley grammer and writing curriculum is so much more rigorous than P to P. The school uses Scott Foreman Math, the top Math program inthe country. The technology grants have boosted this school to a whole new level in every discipline. Flagstaff does not have P.R. staff to promote the school. Its all word of mouth. But, its a fantastic school for smart and struggling children. Most of all the children and families are loving and wholesome. Every child is welcome and treasured at Flagstaff Academy.

I have two middle school students at FCA and they are being challenged and love school. Yes, FCA does not cater to everyone and you'd be ignorant to think a school can be everything for everybody. This is a very young school with growing pains but a committed staff. Many of the parents I have met think their kids are 'gifted.' And if they saw the tests (I asked) their child had to take to prove it, they would quiet down and let their kids learn. Parents need to find ways to fulfill themselves without micromanaging their kids school careers. No matter what a school tells you, there are 25 students in a classroom and your child is not the only one on earth. Running from school, to school, to school is just trading different problems (done that). No school is perfect. Be a problem solver, not a problem.

Raises the bar for our kindergartner. It's amazing what the students accomplish in one day. Emphasis on science and technology is great. Teachers and parent involvement are excellent. Some advice to drive line complainers -If you don't like the drive line then get out of your car and walk. You'll be in and out in less than 5 minutes.

My son currently attends this school and we are going to pull him out because there is no control and my son has already had 2 teachers that have left. The classes are overcrowded and my son is definitely not taking classes at his 'level'. They put kids where they have room, not at their level. We put him at Flagstaff because we thought it would be a good school for our gifted son, but I would not recommend it to any parent. I also find it amazing that someone wrote that the 'drive line' is outstanding because it takes myself and all other parents almost 40 minutes just to pick up our kids! I wish I would have seen the remarks on this site before we tried Flagstaff. I also think that the positive remarks from the 2nd of October come from a school official. Learn to spell!

Flagstaff Academy is an excellent school with a curriculum that actually counts for something. The Teachers there are genuinely concerned about quality of eduction without loosing sight of the human element and social interaction between them, their students and the students parents. At Flagstaff they strife for and have already achieved academic excellence of the highest caliber. Their formula: Great teachers, high standards, effective communication, and a set of 4 (four) easy to follow rules. My greatest wish is that Flagstaff Academy at some point in the future will add a high school curriculum to its program. When that day comes I can guarantee an astonishing number of academic scholarships for that institution. So, why Am I so gung ho about Falsgstaff. My now 7-year old boy was not given much of a chance to succeed in a regular school environment, because of his introversion and extreme shyness. He's is now in 2nd grade and performs above class average. He's come out of his shell,plays with all the other kids, and absolutey adores the school and the teachers. I myself went to school in Germany, to this day a country with rigorous education standards that largely succeeds. BUt how I wish we had a school like Flagstaff then.

Flagstaff Academy has the most dedicated and passionate teachers around! The school provides an awesome enrichment program with separate classrooms dedicated to music, art, science lab, and tech lab. My kids learn so much in a day - they are truly challenged. The icing on the cake for me is that they have fun and come home happy!

They get so much done it a day. The kids have science and tech lab each week. Over the top music, art, and PE classes. The kids are taught acdemicly at their own personal level. Lastly, core knowledge is used every where. Oh not to mention the cool new building and out standing drive line.

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.

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.

The different student groups are identified by the Colorado Department of Education. If there are fewer than 16 students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.
