What an amazing little school! I love the warmth of everyone who works there. Those teachers are the hardest working teachers I have ever meet. Yes it is true the Warrior walk was dismissed but only to allow an opportunity for children to receive extra help and personal attention by their teachers in the morning. If you are looking for a close nit community where the teachers actually care about your child and not the state test scores Wilmore Davis is your school!

This school's motto should be, "Eh. It's good enough." The staff all seem to be doing the bare minimum. Many things that made the school stand out have been discontinued (such as the morning Warrior Walk around the athletic fields, a great idea). The new principal seems to insulate himself against parental interactions, and when you have a suggestion or concern, both are met with resistance and, dare I say, attitude? There has been a huge exodus from this school in the past two years, and I believe it is due to a lack of leadership, direction, enthusiasm, communication, and not least of all, a decidedly unwelcoming climate. Pretty sad, when it had been such a great place to be under the former Principal Gomez, who received a well-deserved promotion to Everitt Middle.

Sad :-( (leadership) now! Sad! Sad! Sad! Very little discipline for non tolorance type behaviors, excuses are made for poor administrative choices.

This Use to be a great school when Jeff Gomez was principal. Unfortunatly the new principal Mr. Martenez is driving it into the ground very quickly. Loyal Familes who supported Wilmore Davis for many years, are leaving by the bus loads even just weeks after school started due to his inability or refusal to handle situations correctly. It's also known that the PTA President pulled their kid(s) out as well, which speaks clearly for itself!

The best teachers,and the best principal. Common sense overrules by the book. I can't say enough good things about this school, and the people who run it. PTA is a little over the top but I believe they mean well.

Transfered my son from a dps school to W D Elem last fall. We could not be happier with the choice. The teachers and Mr. Gomez are amazing and paitent. Each student is given time and personal direction. We are here for good!

Great school. The principal makes it all worth the experience for your child. I had 2 kids go all the way through.

We love this school! The teachers are involved and caring. Each student is guided individually as well as in a group setting. The principal is phenomenal! I can't say enough about his involvement, knowing each student and parent by name, being present at each school hosted event and incorporating motivational tools for students, teachers and parents alike. Our sixth grader started at Wilmore-Davis out of a Denver public school and he improved significantly. After seeing his improvement academically and socially we had no questions about where to send our kindergartner who is now a first grader who loves school and is a high achiever. Thank you Mr. Gomez and the incredible staff at Wilmore-Davis. We will be a proud family of a Wilmore student for many years to come.

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.
