Teaching is poor, coordination of counseling with teachers is poor. Communication with teachers is poor.

Posted April 6, 2006

Mountain View Elementary is the 2nd level of education as part of a wonderful program of Windsor schools. It is the follow up to Tozer Primary which offers pre-school to 2nd grade classrooms, the students attend Mtn View for 3rd through 5th grade, then on to middle school and high school. This breakdown of grades keeps the learning environment in focus, and gives the kids the opportunity to grow at their own pace since there is less gap between age ranges. The acedemic program is excellent and provides an exciting and fun cirriculum which includes art, physical education, music, enrichment programs, computer training, and learning support services. The kids also have many opportunities for extra cirricular activities such as chess club, science groups, scouting, and running club. The community also offers plenty of activies with wonderful ammenities including a recreation center and soccer fields. The PTA is very active and accessable.

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.
