This is my childs second year at this school. I am impressed with the willingness of the teachers for the students to grasp with what is being taught. My childs teachers wants her to fully understand what is being taught. There does seem to be alot of students that need extra help so maybe thats why there are teachers going the mile to reach out. There is an open line of commuication and I can appreciate that. The school is clean and always in an orderly fashion. The campus is really nice and the office staff are always friendly. Though my child has complained about the lunch and has often times come home hungry because lunch either wasnt enough or was too poor to eat.

If you are moving from out of state be prepared that your child could very well be ahead of this school. They have many programs in place for children who are behind. There are no programs in place for advanced or gifted children. They have started an after-school program that is very beneficial. It is a good program that is growing. BUE revamped their discipline program. District 16 needs to work on their curriculum.

The teaching programs are wonderful. However the security I feel is a little lax.

Extracurricular activities leave a lot to be desired.

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.
