    "I have 2 students at TPCA, one in 6th grade and one in 8th grade. What initially drew us to this school was the level of academic success, the character focus, and the dress code. I have been very happy with all the teachers, they are both understanding of students and challenging. There has been a lot of help in the subjects my students have a hard time with and when they complain about being bored, or it is too easy, the teachers have been supportive in finding activities that challenge them and keep school interesting. There is a strong sense of community among the students, parents, and staff of TPCA, all are working together to give and get the best education possible."

    "We have been at TPCA for 3 years.Two children. Lower elementary. It is a lot of work (homework and parental involvement both), but my children are learning a ton and they love the school, their teachers, and friends. One thing that makes the school special is the core knowledge curriculum that creates holistic learning and ensures they don't study the same things over and over. And the emphasis on good character positively affects the whole dynamic of the school. Almost without exception, the teachers genuinely care and the kids love them. When my child struggled with a subject, the teacher was quick to get tailored instructional assistance to get her up to speed without any sense of shame. The school is growing, which certainly creates some bumps in the road and transition pains, but I feel like the staff and families are working hard to keep the school headed in the right direction. Coming in, I had some concerns about the school being too rigid (dress code, etc.), but I have been really pleased with my children's experiences at the school and they love it."

    "We have 3 children at the school and I have to say that it's been a great experience. My kids do have a lot of homework but it's very manageable, and necessary if the school is going to provide them with a better than average education. If they need it they readily get help from their teachers. It really does feel like a family and if there are any problems with other students, it's handled quickly. Bullying has never been an issue with us, but like every other school in Colorado it exists. The teachers and administration make us feel very comfortable with the way they handle it. We were already aware of their great reputation for academics before we visited Twin Peaks for the first time....but what sold us the first time.....and in our decision to send the rest of our kids...was how comfortable they fit in. They were happy and other than an education, that's what was important to us."

    "We have had our daughter at this school for 4 years. We have hoped that things would improve. Not so much. The student to teacher ratio is way too high. One teacher to 30 students. I have noticed a lot of issues with bullying. The school doesn't do anything to stop it and the teachers don't have time to deal with it. The homework is ridiculous. You should expect 2-3 hours of homework every night. Also expect to hire a tutor. The teachers seem to hate teaching. I would highly recommend looking at a different school. We are trying to get our daughter into another school right now."

    "Based on experiences at other schools and countless conversations with parents at our school and others, I believe Twin Peaks is on par with the top tier educational environments in our area. We have had tremendous teacher experiences from first grade through sixth, both with my kids' classes, and the volunteer work I have done on an ongoing basis with more than a dozen teachers individually. I am pleased with the middle school team and how they work to improve the transition experience for the students and parents. I love that my kids can stay at the same school through 12th grade and have similar schedules that make my busy life easier. I am happy with my children's growth and that of other students I work with on a regular basis. I feel blessed to have additional support from the character education that is built into the curriculum. The reason I am not giving all fives is because I believe every school has room for improvement and that we should not stay idle. Also, I would not rate any other school higher. I know my kids are getting a useful, well-rounded education that will set them up for success in higher education and career life."
