This school seems like the classes are too large for the teachers. They tend to have their favorites and let other kids fall by the wayside. They expect the parents to do all the teaching at home and they put in minimal effort. I am very disappointed that this was my first experience with putting my own child into a public school. It seems like the first graders are not as advanced as children in other schools and the staff encourages children not to 'tattle tale' on bullying. If they get bumps and bruises, half the time the teachers don't even send them to the nurse. I hate having to send my only child here all day, it is very depressing to think about!

I love this school. The staff is very involved with the parents and the community and the children. You can tell that in this school they care about the education that they are providing and the students that are reciving it.

I love North Mor! I'm constantly amazed by the lengths that the teachers go for their students, the strength of the school leadership and the climate in the school that they have created together. I love going to their family nights. The staff is so engaging and welcoming and the events are fun and meaningful for my entire family. I also love the attention that the staff has given to the two children that I have there. The boys feel special and supported everyday, and they are learning so much. They are currently reading a grade and a half above their grade level, excelling in Math & Science, and most importantly they are learning to become life long learners. These are all skills that they have acquired from the amazing staff at North Mor. I am so grateful for all they do. You want to be at this school!

My stepson has attended North Mor a few years & like most public schools they just keep passing through even though he hasn't really learned much. Quite sad how this keeps happening now days.

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.
