If you are looking for a school with top-notch, ultra-supportive, go a million-miles out of there way to encourage students, type of staff - look at BIll Reed. This school models positive community. I wouldn't send my daughter anywhere else.
As a student I have not been to happy with this school. Although it is called a LISA school there is no arts incoperated into our learning and the LISA program leaves much to be dieserd. The work at this school is all book work, with no hands on learning.
Bill Reed is an excellent school. I pulled my daughter out of Walt Clark because of the cliquish and mean spirited students and the non-supportive office staff. The VP is helpful, but the Principal is not. After that experience, Bill Reed was a breath of fresh air. Great kids, great teachers, great staff and a great Principal.
I am not a big fan of Bill Reed or Thompson Valley School District. I am taking my child out of this district because in my opinion it is a "poor" school district and I have not been please with the teachers and the lack of homework. My child is a straight A student but this school does not have books for the students to bring home to study with and they are not given a lot of homework. Ft. Collins schools are a lot better. Do not send your child here.
Bill Reed is by far the best school. The staff is amazing! Not only do they do their job, they also build a healthy relationship with students, they act as a best friend yet have complete authority. I attend Bill Reed and have no complaints I love the entire staff and not only have a good education but have made amazing memories due to the incredible staff in sports, in the classroom, and all the extra classes such as LISA, Photography, Robotics, etc. The staff and students that walk the halls of Bill Reed are marvelous. Once again, I recommend this school to everyone! It is amazing, I have learned so much more and have extended my knowlege so far. The teachers are very patient with students and give you their full attention.

The LISA program (Loveland Integrated School of the Arts) just gets better and better. My son is doing great stuff with guitar, and my daughter is taking an after-school sculpture class. Both are getting great grades and enjoying their classes.
