This school is horrible. The principle should not be around children at all. She is manipulative and rude. Bulling is the norm and its treated like its alright. run as far away from this school as possible.

My son went to this school. The principal told me he was unteachable. It is a horrible school. The principal should not be working with children. BTW we sent him to another school, he is above grade level.

I had two children attending this school one in third and one in fifth and I have to say this is one of the worst schools they have attended. There is no disipline the children cuss and are violent, bullying is not only tolerated but rewarded. The principle is on a power trip and manipulates the children.

Since the current principal came onboard this school has been committed to doing the best for each child. The school runs smoothly and the staff is very parent friendly. If you want your child to recieve the best then pueblo west is the place to be!

I have three children that attends this school the principal and staff have been wonderful. I have one autistic child and the school goes over and beyond for my self to exceed. My daughter is in 2nd grade and come home with a very excited imagination about things she have learned and my 5th grader he has ADHD and he is pulling all A's. This school has really changed my mind abput the school system in Pueblo. Good job, Pueblo West!

I have been happy with the school. I have sons in 5th and 1st grade. their teachers have been very helpful in the parent/teacher conferences and the office staff has always been polite and able to answer any questions I have had. Keep up the good work.

I haven't been happy with this school from day 1. There seems to be no discipline for the students actions.The office staff is very unfriendly.I would advise any parent to steer your children far from this school.

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.
