Okay this school needs major help ! I suggest you don't send your kids her !!! As for me I went there, and I was pushed around and really mean names ! Of course this girl wanted too fight me. I went to two teachers they didn't do anything ! So I handled it myself and of course I got suspended. But take my advice ! It so much the school but is so much the students ! You'll have people ditching everyday and a lot of fights going on !

After reading Roncalli's handbook for 2013-14 i'm scared and wont send my child to this school. It focuses on discipline, consequenses, and outrageous fines. They pretty much state you are lucky to even get an education and if you don't pay your "fines" they won't let you go to high school and graduate, which they repeat over and over. They'll even confiscate your lock on your locker if it's not locked and charge you six dollars. Half way through the handbook I decided to just call the school. The secretary was unprofessional and just told me to come get the handbook. I just wanted to know simple things like when school starts, uniforms, and the bus, which I found later at the end of the handbook online. Other schools' handbooks are informative and inviting. I don't know what's up with this school, but I hope this is not the future of education.

1. Well Roncalli is starting the S.T.E.M Program and I think people should know about this because it is a major learning opportunity! 2. I like how Roncalli Helps with Bully's we all follow Rachel's Challenge. And stick to it. 3. My school can improve on the learning tools we have allot of modern things but we could always need more sports equipment and class room tools.

I have never been so unsatisfied with a school as much as roncalli. The teachers don't care if the kids understand and learn what is being taught there aren't books for reference on homework. I am looking to find a job out of pueblo so my kids can get a quality education, not what they need to obtain minimum wage work. I only pushed 1star because there is no way to rate them less.

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.
