North Mesa Elementary is an incredible school. My oldest daughter as attended school there since kindergarden and sadly this is her last year there. I have two other daughters that attend the school and thanks to the teachers and staff all three of girls are advanced learners!

Posted April 1, 2005

The parent involment at North Mesa is one of the strongest I have ever been aware of. My child is well informed of all extacurricular activities for the school and outside and he is academically ahead of alot of the kids that go to other schools. The teachers and Principal as well as the other staff really care about each and every child that enters that front door!

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.
