    "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."

    "TWPCA a great disappointment We moved to Longmont last year and were excited by the proposect of her attending a charter school but TWPCA is not what a STEM school should be. Key Issues Student:Teacher Ratio is to high Turnover of Board is to high Parents withdrawing their children from this school Sense of Desperation in recruiting new families Board and Leadership do not seem to have a clear plan to execute No visible plan to drive standards back up"

    "LOVE Twin Peaks Charter Academy! We moved our daughter here three years ago from our neighborhood school. Although we were content with our old school and our daughter did well, we had no idea of her potential once she was challenged! She has SOARED. The core knowledge curriculum yields an outstanding education, our daughter is safe here, we love the dress code and the continuous character education/assemblies are the icing on the cake. We are looking forward to the classical curriculum in high school for her AND soon we will have both her brothers enrolled! It will be great to be able to drop-off/pick-up three kids from ONE location!"

    "My daughter is in first grade and loves Twin Peaks Charter Academy. She was in Montessori for Pre-K and K so I didn't know how well she would transfer but it has worked beautifully. TPCA offers students and parents access to a great education. My daughter is learning a tremendous amount through the Core Knowledge program and really enjoys the extracurricular activities (Spanish, music and art). The staff and faculty are caring and work with the children to get the most out of school. I also appreciate the level of parent involvement."
