We have the best Head of School! Sharon Kenyon is the greatest leader in our schools history! We are a school that serves only gifted students, which is a highly overlooked but important segment of our population. Stargate is teaching our brightest children to be character driven individuals that will do great things for our world!

Stargate is a great school for differentiated learning. We love our teachers and staff. It's also a great school for parental involvement! Without our parent volunteers, our teachers would have a much harder time delivering the quality education!

My child is new to Stargate this year and I already see many great changes in her.

I love Stargate because I've seen my daughter be the happiest she's ever been at a school. The environment at Stargate is one of such high expectations that children find it easy to succeed.

The best thing about Stargate is that my daughter loves going to school! The learning environment provides a great foundation for her educational needs. This positive environment coupled with a fantastic head of school, great staff and wonderful parent volunteers makes me feel that she is in the best school. We couldn't be happier!

Our school truly caters to the needs of gifted and talented students. GT is a special needs catagory and not many places can deal effectively with this type of population. Our Head of School, Sharon Kenyon, is the best!

I am a current student at Stargate, and have gone here for 2 years and am begging my parents to transfer schools. The 5,6,7,8 gradew teachers are very rude and have very little respect for there students. The atletics is also horrible. I got kiked off the vollyball team because a told a girl to 'get the ball!' Please do not put you child through what I have gone through.

stargate is a great school, the curriculum and the teachers are great. Although the schools culture is a disaster as a result of a few zealous parents who are militant about trying to remove the head of school and take control for themselves

Stargate is a challenging, motivating school that really cares about student success. I am really impressed with recent changes the school administration has made such as creating a lower head of school position and adding a vice principle position. I also believe the new board structure will help the school more effectively meet it's mission

The 2008/2009 year is a transition year for Stargate. The school has suffered some growing pains and a loss of it's sense of identity. My family has been involved with Stargate for nine years and the 'feel' of the school today is very different than it once was. I cannot say enough nice things about the first seven years but then came some major changes and with them problems were encountered. My major focus has always been my children so I always took a long hard look at what was happening as it pertained to my child's education. The current 'feel' of the school is cold and impersonal as compared to the past. The sense of break though education for the gifted is now just a passing thought. There is no 'wow' factor in the school. It is still a good school just not the cutting edge of gifted education.

The teachers at this school are great. Whereas obviously the head of school and the board of directors caused some issues, hope is on the horizon with a new Board with parent membership. For a child that is way ahead of her peers, this is a safe talented and gifted school that challenges the kids.

Stargate used to be a really great school, with amazing teachers and a great principle. But in the past two years, the 'head of school,' has made Sargate a different place. The older kids are way to restricted on what they can do, and it seems like the younger kids are the only focus of the administration. The school is no longer a fun place to be, now it feels like an overwhelming, overpriced,and overrated school.

I have been at Stargate for many years. It started out as a great school with lots of heart. It used to be clear that each child reaching their full potential was the goal. In the past two years the focus has changed to creating a school that runs like a business. It seems that once the principal title was changed to Head of School, all of the kindness that the school once possessed was left behind. The Board of Directors has removed the parental vote and is now self perpetuating. This has created a school which is no longer concerned with the needs of the families they are supposed to be serving. It is a shame that the once spectacular Charter school has been turned into a regular school with no attention paid to what made it great in the first place.

We have been involved with Stargate for 5 years now and couldn't be happier. Our children are challenged and enjoy school. The are with kids 'in their age group' but they learn at their academic level. The principal, administration and especially the teachers are the best in the state. They are attentived to the needs of our children and are very responsive to us as parents. They really care about our children. The extracurricular activities are growing every year. There are many clubs to choose from now (sports, art, drama, science, cheerleading, etc.) It is amazing how far this school has come in such a short time. We are so happy we found Stargate!

I am a student at Stargate and i am a person to encounter the actoions that the school has taken for all of the grades kindergarden through eighth grade. I think that the school did a good job at the beggining of the life of the school but since then the school has gone down at a rapid rate. Many of the children that are at the school are being neglected from what they need as being children. The school administration that controls the school has done a very bad job of keeping track of the older, higher grade students. First hand everyday i experience that wrong doing of the school on students and parents. I dislike that the student body has no power what so ever in introducing new ideas to make Stargate a very strong and safe community for all of the kids and parents to enjoy. -Nicholas Reisch

I've been in Stargate for eight years, and it's a great school. The teachers are really involved, and one-to-one with the students. Even though we have had several directors in the last few years, they have all been really great. Stargate has electives and sports for the 7/8, and 'specials' for all grades, including art, music, PE, and computers. I'll be really sad when I leave at the end of this year!

My child feels very safe at Stargate. There are many security implements in place. The staff is well trained in everything from bullying to lockdown procedures. Our daughter thrives because Stargate allows her to be her truest, brightest self. She doesn't have to pretend not to be as smart, just to fit in. Her sense of humor, personality, and vocabulary, and confidence level have soared due to this. Stargate also helps students to be of high moral character. The homework is not intense or overwhelming at all, and in fact Stargate is excellent at intereactive project presentations for all grade levels. This is so important in a student's personal, public speaking, and academic development. Stargate's staff and administration is of the highest level of professionalism and courteousness. They really go out of their way to make everyone feel included in the Stargate family. Stargate truly is a high quality educational program without the tuition.

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.

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.

The different student groups are identified by the Colorado Department of Education. If there are fewer than 16 students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

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.
