    "For clarification, I am wondering if the following review (dated July 7th, 2013) is referencing the Boulder Mackintosh campus as these comments seem to be in alignment with some of the Boulder parent/student experiences there. From my vintage point, Littleton's campus has more tenured leaders, a collaborative, experienced and supportive team of teachers, what appears to be positive cohesion and commitment within its parent community and increasing enrollment. Star ratings for my post are to reference Mackintosh Littleton's program as opposed to Mackintosh Boulder's program."

    "Mackintosh is a strong choice in the early grades, but thin staffing, poor management, lack of leadership, and ignoring bad behavior in the classroom at the expense of the victims of bullies make it a place to avoid for parents of kids beyond early education. There are some wonderful teachers at the school, but rising tuition costs (which have not translated into better compensation for them, BTW) have not been accompanied by improved instruction, more resources, or better technology, for example. The school has raised tuition it seems to counter declining enrollments. Our family has moved on, and our kids did get some good things from Mackintosh, but as the parent of a twice exceptional child and a "just gifted" child, in the end the school failed them both, and we are out 15k per year per kid. We could have been failed in the public school system for free."

    "The Dec. 19 post confuses me. If you want a stricter admission policy in this economy, you should expect to be solicited for more fundraising. Private schools are desperate for enrollment. The previous administrator was also a business-savvy educator, who's only fault was that she sometimes told the hard truth to people when children were being compromised. She is sorely missed by teachers and families alike."

    "We have had our kids at Mackintosh for several years now and although there have been some good things, at this point we are frustrated, disappointed, and angry. For the 16k per kid we are paying in tuition, the lack of stability in classroom instruction, inconsistency in instruction, grading, and feedback, and, in particular, resistance to and at best haphazard support of our twice exceptional child simply makes Mackintosh a rip-off. The school has a reputation for serving gifted and twice exceptional children, but this is only as good as the teacher du jour and the amount of attention the very thin staff has to pay to the new Boulder campus. The school is badly overextended and has lost its ability to deliver the most fundamental thing they promise- individualized rigorous education for gifted and 2e kids. This failure is partially responsible for my child now struggling to succeed in high school- she did not get the tools she needed for high school at Mackintosh. For 16k, our family deserves much better."

    "While I agree that there have been some poor admission policies and that more attention needs to be given to hiring to ensure we get and retain the right teachers, none of that changes the fact that my child has THRIVED since transferring to Mackintosh. The IB framework fits well with the GTs drive to learn deeply about a variety of subjects. The school has no issues differentiating & accelerating as needed for the individual child, and there has been a fundamental understanding of the social emotional needs of the gifted learner that has changed my chilld from being shy and afraid of not being perfect to an outgoing risk taker. I cannot say enough good things about what Mackintosh has done for our family. And to furter address the concerns with administration change, teacher qualification, and questionable admission standards in the past - I have found the new administration has recognized these concerns and is working to address them directly. From conversations I have had, it appears that while these concerns are true in part, it is a lack of transparent communication that has perpetuated the impression that the problems are continuing when in fact they are being addressed."
