Awesome school with caring teachers and staff. The tennis and chess programs are outstanding!
—Submitted by a parent


Posted March 23, 2010

This school provides my two sons a great education and they both have excelled beyond my expectations. Despite the lack of supplies, materials, books and other necessary resources, they have performed very well. I plan to keep my children at this school all the way to 8th grade. The school will be adding a grade every year. They current go up to 4th grade.

Great school! The students are pushed to go to college even at kindergarten. This school is going to be the change we need.

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.
