Colorado Academy has a very inviting and encouraging community. The small class sizes allow for personalized help. There is a huge athletic community and many student come out and support their peers. The campus is beautiful and offers a lot of extra curricular activities for students during off periods. The library is a great place to study or get homework done throughout the day. The variety of classes to chose from allows students to make their schedule fit their personal interests and preferences. The teachers at CA are always willing and available to help with work during the day or during the designated time at the end of each school day called "help time." Finally, there is a great connection between lower, middle, and upper school students. Each senior in high school is given a kindergarten buddy and a freshman buddy, which turn into amazing friendships.
This school looks pretty from the outside. However, on the inside, there is a pervasive issue with elitism, bullying, unprofessionalism, and an Administration that is punitive towards the teaching staff. If you have enough money and power, you will do fine here. However, if your pockets are not so deep, and you don't cozy up with Headmaster, you may get walked on. The leadership at this school is a joke!
