STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) Focus School. My son loves the integration! Last years highlights were Cain's Challenge Box Building, Science Night (with robot building), and anol lizard habitats. Great stuff! Staff is caring, kind, compassionate, helpful, educated, and patient. Love the extras-super great sports day, computer lab, school musical, and after school activities.

We LOVE our school! The academic mission of this school is clear, evidence of mission is seen throughout the school from hallway decoration to student work. Documentation of progress monitoring such as data tracking systems, professional development days dedicated to data reflection and progress monitoring. Any time you walk in to talk to a teacher they can show you progress monitoring systems in place for both adults and students that make job performance and academic progression clear and apparent to all involved parities from administrators to parents. Students are challenged and are expected to rise to the occasion or voice concerns when struggling with work,the teachers are always willing to stay over and help or set up the help for the student that is in need.The administration and staff at Edmondson are meeting the needs of all students regardless of there social or academic ability or home environment. It is evident through the climbing test scores how much this school means to the staff, administration and parents. Good Job Laurene Edmondson!!

Edmondson Has excellent teachers, staff and Mrs Dawson is an amazing Principal. I would not want my children to go to any other school. They have many afterschool programs and activities, the school encourages the children on a daily basis and rewards them for good behavior.

I have been extremely pleased with Edmonson Elementary. Both of my children and my nieces and nephews have had a great experience there. The principal is excellent and is very often in the classroom, lunchroom and playground interacting with the children. He knows them by name and supports them. The teachers are excellent with Master's prepared educators teaching reading in first grade. I would highly recommend this school for the culture of kindness, academic focus and diversity of the student body. Edmondson's test scores are always improving and it is definitely a hidden treasure in Loveland.

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.
