Nightmare of a school. The teachers are afraid to deal with the students and the administration is not in control at all. Students have to wear uniforms because of gang activity. It is not a healthy learning environment at all.

As most, I went to this school, my son went to this school, and 2 of 3 of my granchildren are at this school. The school's rating is ridicously low in comparison to surrounding schools. Could it be the pay grade for the present teachers is below that of surrounding schools? Could it be the parent involvement with the school is lower than surrounding schools? Wake up parents and get involved or is a lower than standard education okay for your children?

My child went to this school and was unhappy about this school. She was in honors math and language arts and said that is very, very was easy. She has told me many thimes that the children in this school behave very badly. Even in the honors classes. Somebody in each one of her classes is sent to the office. There are fights every day. The teachers are rude and so is the principal. And if you want to know my daugter is very well behaved and has never talked back to a teacher. Thankfully, we have trasfered out of that school and now we go to Westlake Middle School which is amazing. In conclusion, this the lowest performing school i have ever seen. I do NOT recommend this school to anyone.

this school is amazing and people can't judge based on the students, we have the same curriclum in all the adams 12 district schools. if you have problems with teachers then have you ever thought it might be your kid back talking to the teacher? because all the teachers at this school are great and the only students who have problems are the ones that misbehave

What i have seen in this school the quality of respect for some of the students of low class is not equal to others of higher status. also this school has a problem of violations of students rights to free speech and freedom of the press.

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.
