This school is very unorganized, horrible communication between school and parents. Some of the teachers are not doing their jobs. Honestly, I will not be sending my child back because of the situations I dealt with. I did not feel secure with my child attending this school. My child fell behind and no one made me aware of it. Principal had no idea on situations in his own school.

This elementary school has one of the best music programs offered in the public school system that I and my music educator family members have ever had the opportunity to be a part of. As with all schools, there are some really great teachers and there are some not so motivated teachers.

This is a small town full of cliques. If your child is not an athlete his or her needs will be overlooked. My child is gifted and I have had to fight tooth and nail to have this recognized and addressed. My child continues to be bored with the curriculum. We are looking for alternate options but there aren't many out here.

For the most part the elementary school is good and offers a wide range of opportunities for each student. There have been some blatant displays of favortism by teachers for their students...especially toward the athletes or other teachers' children. I think this happens everywhere and kids just need to learn to work around it. The classes are NOT smaller than city or suburban schools. The average class still has 20-25 + kids. In the 07-08 school year there were four 4th grade classes. My child has been in the school 5 years now and we have seen such rapid and huge growth and it's only going to continue. It's no longer a small town and the school is proof of that.

I love how the teacher really care what is going on with out children! Thank you Amanda Deegan!

I am satisfied that my child has the oppurtunity to go to a small school rather than a large populated school. I feel that small classes are a wise decision especially for that one on one learning with the teacher. We are still having to do a little work at home with our child so that he/she can go on to the next grade.

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.
