I was a traditional student at Niwot that took some AP science classes. After graduating from Niwot HS I was extremely academically prepared for a four year university and graduated summa cum laude with a B. S. in biology emphasizing pre-medicine. The teachers cared about me as a person and also provided a me with a top notch education.

Over the years I have witnessed the efforts Niwot High has done to make this a more inclusive and diverse school for students. The teachers are innovators and always thinking outside the box to make learning not only fun, but relevant to life. Proud Alumni, Laura Zavala

My child attends Niwot High School and will begin the formal IB curriculum next year. We could not be more appreciative of the opportunities NHS has provided during her first two years of attendance. The school is an ideal fit for high achieving/GT/TAG students.

All three of my children graduated from Niwot High School and have gone on to have success in life. NHS teachers and coaches met them where they were and encouraged them to excel. One of them took AP classes, another took the IB route and one the social scene. They were involved in sports, choir, and drama. They ALL had a great beginning for future achievement and happiness.

This is an amazing school for many reasons, but in particular the administration deeply cares for the students, staff, and teachers here. From arts to Physics, Automotive to math, the school is beyond excellent. The school is focused on what it should be: Helping all students to their highest and best actualization. The IB program opens doors that other schools simply can't touch, and the team is immensely caring about its students.


Effective school leaders: Strongly agree


- a
Leadership at this school is the most committed, most caring, most effective we have witnessed, ever. Always seeking improvement, the leaders support both students and staff in always striving to be their best.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
Our student loves all of her teachers, and they are engaged in helping when the curriculum is confusing or needs clarification. They are available for extra help regularly.

Amount of homework: Strongly agree


- a
Homework is appropriate in difficulty and duration. Never do assignments seem to be simply for busy work or mindless repetition.

I am open enrolled student and the 40 minute drive each morning has been worth it. I chose Niwot because of the IB program, although it has been difficult and stressful at times, the IB program has pushed me academically and better prepared me for the future. The music, drama, and art departments at Niwot are amazing, I love going to the musical each year, and every time it has blown me away. Choir, band, and orchestra is a great way to meet new people, create lasting friendships, as well as learning and performing new music. The sports programs are fantastic, I participate in volleyball and track and field, and both sports went to state and or placed a few times within three years. A really cool thing about Niwot is that we have about 41 clubs. I have participated in six clubs so far and all of them have been super fun. Lastly, the staff at Niwot is amazing, they are always willing to talk and get to know the students. The principle, Eric Rauschkolb, is really involved in school spirit and makes sure that the students feel like they matter. Overall Niwot is a great school, there are so many opportunities there, and I would recommend it highly.

Supports LD students: Strongly agree

We have the buddies program which has students participate in after school activities with students who have learning disabilities. The counselors are always willing to accommodate a students schedule or plan to what best fits their needs.
