Loveland has some great teachers and students, however my experience as a fresh man was awful. Some of the teachers at the school are not qualified enough nor do they have the proper experience to be teaching. The school itself is also highly outdated between no air conditioning and a highly confusing layout. I've been at Loveland for a year and still don't know my school very well( partially because they have renumbered the rooms twice this year). I would say that Loveland does have very good art, social studies, science, and English departments as well as a wide range of clubs/ after school activities to fit any student.

Wonderful staff, my son's experience was amazing. The schools community involvement is impressive. Love the geometry in construction where the students build a house and donate it to habitat for humanity.

It seems to me that this school has some real issues keeping the children in the classroom. If you want some proof go for a walk around Loveland Lake. You are sure to see teenageers from Loveland High hanging out smoking. It is disgusting, they are ruining this park! I have had to call the police a few times because of fights breaking out. How disappointing.

Loveland High School is a great school with CSAP scores to back it up. The teachers are dedicated and passionate. LHS offers IB,honors courses for the ones who need challenged but also teach to the ones that need a little extra help. Athletics is awesome. State Championships in Football, Swimming, Gymnastics, and Baseball. The other sports are on the rise especially girls basketball.

The educational structure for special education is incomprehensible. It's unbelievable that parents still focus on sports and cheerleading as opposed to education, how indicative of our society

Loveland High is a good school, during my time their as a student there were many fantastic teachers. Some of whom are still around, the ones that come to mind are: Mrs. Langford (now teaching at Mountain View), Mr. Finly, Mr. Pruess, Mrs. Tanner, Mr. Glover.

Do not think that funding is being used wisely. Worry to much about how do we look rather than how are we doing

A superb high school, an excellent band, not so good football team. Love the Latin Club. I participate in directing drama classes for seniors.

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.
