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 University Schools's test results to learn more about school performance.
In 2011, University Schools had 20 students for every full-time equivalent teacher. The Colorado average is 17 students per full-time equivalent teacher.

You can say a tad bit fed up
My children have attended this school for a few years now. I believe I am happy with the education thus far. I found the teachers that have taught my children to be kind and caring and interactive with the students for the most part.
Other staff members, however, seem to have an overwhelming sense of self righteousness and self-proclaimed entitlement. I have personally been told that I basically am no longer the parent once the kids enter their doors and my child has been told that they are not allowed to speak to me when they are there. This is an issue I have seen across the district with friends whose children attend other schools.
I have witnessed on several occasions of children being verbally bullied by staff members on their "mightier then thou" kicks.
If there is a serious incident, forget about addressing it because you will not get a follow up as promised.
My children do not get into trouble. Their reports are always positive with how respectful and kind they are in class and with others.
At what point did these schools get so much power when it comes to our children? I will not allow it another day. I am fed up with them. They talk down on us parents like we have one quarter of the brain that they do. Done!
My son attended this school from K-5th grade. This school was an absolute failure for my son. He has learning challenges that were not addressed. We were constantly meeting with teachers and District 6 special education staff, to no avail. Any suggestions we made, to help with his reading were ignored. Apparently parents don't know what's best for their kids! When we pulled him in 5th grade he was reading at a 1st grade level. We paid for independent testing to see where he was academically and what his needs were. We knew he was behind, but the school was telling us he was further along then he actually was.
Don't send your kids to this school if they have any kind of learning issues. The schools philosophy is "self-directed learning". In other words, they learn by themselves and get little help when needed. We now homeschool and my son is reading at grade level.
