About This School
Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system. See 21ST Century Charter School's test results to learn more about school performance.
In 2011, 21ST Century Charter School had 15 students for every full-time equivalent teacher. The Colorado average is 17 students per full-time equivalent teacher.

21ST Century Charter School Reviews
Very Unfortunate Experience
There was a time when I felt like sending my child to Pikes Peak Prep was a good decision. I agree with the other person who wrote a review. The new Odyssey Program was a mistake. There are numerous students there having difficulty with it. Although most of the staff are doing the best they can to work with it Administration has no idea what they are doing. They are in another city and haven't got a clue what is actually going on at the school. Communication between staff on site and their leadership in another state is poor to say the least.
I would not recommend going to Pikes Peak Prep, the school has a new program called Odyssey that does not help the students learn. The teachers do not get to instruct very long, most students do not get a lots of physical education due to the program as well.
