Our child has special needs and this is his third school because of it. It's the first school he has succeeded in. The teachers seem to want to help him, and the special needs teachers want the best for him, as well as the other special needs children. As a whole, the parents seem involved, and there seems to be a decent number of activities for children. If you're a parent that wants to be involved, they will definitely appreciate your help. Not that it matters, but the natural environment might be one of the best in the country. A couple of trails surround the school which they use for outdoor learning for the kids.
I went here as a child and I loved it. The teachers are kind and thoughtful and the class was just like a large family. The only thing stopping this school from getting a 5 for me is that I did not feel prepared going into D'Evelyn afterwards. The switch was extremely hard for me, but I made it and I wouldn't trade my elementary school experience for any other.
I open enroll at Red Rocks and drive 7 miles each way to take my son here based on the excellent referrals I rec'd from other parents at the school. The environment at Red Rocks is one of teamwork and respect. The kids truly respect each other and work very well together. The teachers are awesome and test scores are great! We also have one of the highest rates of parent involvement in the district. Most teachers have at least one volunteer per day.
Red Rocks Elementary is an exceptional school in every way. Our children feel safe, supported, challenged, and respected every day. Teachers show that they truly care about the children and families they work with, and the overall atmosphere of the school is warm, inviting, and positive. I would drive my kiddos across town to keep them at Red Rocks Elementary!
Red Rocks Elementary School is an exceptional school in an exceptional setting. Reasonably-sized classes, dedicated teachers, award-winning library, and a principal who understands the "business" of running a school create a positive and productive place for kids to spend their day. Red Rocks values learning and leadership, which is evident in the school's culture and the attitudes students demonstrate in their classrooms. Programs, projects and clubs such as Language Clubs, Battle of the Books, Leadership Day, Carnival, Project PRIDE, an incredible outdoor classroom, annual School Fun Run, Drama Club, community service opportunities, and an active student council set Red Rocks apart from other schools. Red Rocks students transition to middle school with a strong sense of self and confidence in their ability to achieve at high levels. It is a place where teachers adept at differentiation are able to nurture success in every child.
Red Rocks offers a high quality education that is geared to all ability levels. Great extracurricular activities such as Spanish. The enthusiasm and dedication of the Principal, coupled with a great deal of parental involvement makes this school a warm, caring, and sensitive environment which is highly conducive to learning.
