    "At Peak to Peak Charter School, we have a little slogan that goes as such: "I will strive to achieve excellence in scholarship and character". As a student who has attended this outstanding school for 12 years, I see that the vision in our slogan is more alive every year as I advance through the stages of my education. Peak to Peak is a liberal arts school that builds an "above the average" foundation for education. Our goal is to prepare students for higher education through a rigorous course plan and an advanced curriculum that will put our students above the state average on the college readiness exams, and will allow our students a successful educational experience. The staff at this quaint school work very hard to assure that their students comprehend the material in a no less than 100% manner. As a Dean's List student of Peak to Peak, I feel that I have a home at Peak to Peak. There is a prominent sense of mutual respect among the students; however students do have the traditional high school experience of friendly class rivalry! Peak to Peak is a safe and overall elite school and I feel very blessed to be in the Peak to Peak family!"

    "This school is awesome. Great teachers, the kids excel and a lot of parent involvement. Have been there for 8 years now and daughter loves it. Will stay until 12th and graduate. It is great to have the continuity of the families and teachers."

    "I remain hopeful that P2P is still the school described in the comment below (Feb. 5th). Theirs is the vision we followed, like a star, to a remarkable school nearly 11 years ago."

    "My children (all 4) have been at this school for 11 years. I love this school! If you're a parent that encourages and values achievement, and has an expectation that they will attend college then this is a great fit for you. If you have a child who has behavioral problems, he/she may struggle here. Academics are the focus. The teachers are kind and caring, and want to see each child succeed. One of the greatest things is the ability grouping. Students may skip up to another grade for math for example, if academically they are at that level, and each grade level is broken up into at least 3 ability groups. The intervention when students aren't at grade level is impressive; they get special small group instruction and are not taken off the learning plan until they are ready and have performed at grade level consistently. 100% of last year's graduating class (apx 150 students) was accepted to college. And if this doesn't blow you away, those students were offered $16 million in scholarships! That averages to over $100k per student. I agree it's not the perfect school for everyone, but it has been perfect for us, and all 4 of my kids (boys & girls) have thrived here."

    "Teacher quality, in the elementary school, has gone down in the past couple of years due to hiring of under qualified people. The administration is very poor. The one just recently hired is not even qualified to be in the position, but they created it for her, rather than seek a good candidate. There is a very superficialness about the school. There are problems in grades that just get swept under the rug instead of being dealt with. The intermediate is very poor with regard to teacher quality. Parental involvement is very good, although, some act like it is a private school rather than a public. Bullying is handled in the typical 'Boulder' style with unrealistic solutions. There is good still but is is sadly declining, and the stagnant turnover of the non-effective teachers along with the hiring of para-educators who have been passed over time and again because they weren't good enough to get a job, finally get a job given to them without any search or competition. High School is Great! A bit rigorous, but good for any student that wants college prep."
