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 Atlas Preparatory School's test results to learn more about school performance.
In 2011, Atlas Preparatory School had 10 students for every full-time equivalent teacher. The Colorado average is 17 students per full-time equivalent teacher.

Lots of changes
This school keeps changing. My 7th grader has had 3 different teachers this year and it's not even December yet. His special ed teacher seems to be the only one sticking around. Teachers are leaving all the time or getting moved to different parts of the school and new teachers come in. He has had 3 advisers this year too. I think teachers are trying, but everyone has different answers to my questions. No one seems to know what's going on.
This is a great school. My 5th grader is doing so well and loves the paycheck system. All the teachers know her by name and I can tell they care about her doing good.
