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!
I'm in 6th grade and this school is OK if you have to go to it. i wish i went to public school cuz there r 2 many bullies here and nothing fun. my freinds at altona are liking middle school better than i am. not happy with my parents for switching me.
The committed teachers and principal are excellent and core curriculm exceeds typical public school curriculm
Flagstaff is an enriching, challenging, warm and fun environment in which to learn.
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!
Flagstaff Academy is the finest school in the Longmont, Colorado. The faculity is outstanding. They use Core Knowledge Cirriculum which enlightens our students to be the best they can be. Our kids are challenged and happy! Flagstaff Rocks!
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.
My children have been at Flagstaff since year one. We have found Flagstaff to be the best fit for our family with its focus on science and technology as well as strong art, music. Spanish and physical education programs. Granted, Flagstaff is a young school and has experienced its share of growing pains. However, we are part of a hard-working, creative, cohesive unit of parents, teachers, and Board working together to provide excellence in education for our children. No school is perfect, but Flagstaff continues to serve my children with imagination and flexibility. We stand firm in our support of Flagstaff and encourage other families to take a look.
My children (elementary and middle school) attended Flagstaff for 2 years and I can promise you that you will want to look elsewhere for a proper educational experience for your children. Our family kept waiting for things to get better and more organized, but after last years crazy turnover of teachers, principals, and other students we can no longer have our children in such an unstable environment. They have eight teachers who won awards and that is true, but if you look at how many of those eight teachers will be there this year you will know that it is just propaganda for recruiting more unknowning parents. Please, I implore all parents looking for a proper school for your children, take heed of all the comments on this site before you make your decision.
My son is currently in the 6th grade group at Flagstaff. We enrolled our son at Flagstaff this year and I regret that decision everyday. The main curriculum is decent but really nothing over and above. This school will probably be a good in a few years but they are really unstable and it is really hard to get any info or news in a timely manner from teachers or the staff. Also, the extracurriculars are all over the place so be prepared to be frustrated.
Great curriculum but not for special needs kids. In fact, they try to force them out because they lack the skills, infrastructure or knowledge to deal with them. This school appears to be trying to cater only to a certain population of students which will raise their CSAP scores...the rest of them be damned.
My two children attend since 2006-2007 and the caliber of knowledge equals that of a private school (both children attended private school prior to this charter). the number of after school programs is exemplary and the art and music programs are unequaled in the area (i.e. the music teacher is designing the National music curriculum for Core Knowledge.
My 2 children attend Flagstaff and while not a founding family, we have attended Flagstaff since it's inception 3 years ago. We could not be more pleased with the curriculum, the teachers, the leadership and parent involvement in this school.
