Weld County Reorganized School District No. RE-8 Reviews

There is a very connected school community within this district. However, administration is not involved with the students, especially when they visit schools. They do not attempt to make personal connections, or even truly observe the student body and the teachers. The district focuses a ton on sports, and not so much on visual or performing arts. So, there is an imbalance in the value of activities due to differences in the quality of equipment (high school band has 30 year old instruments and old carpet, but the district is spending millions of dollars on a new high school weightlifting room.)

Fort Lupton High School is a pretty cool place. Class size is great. It is easy to get around in the school. The school is not really small, but big enough to not really feel crowded. The teachers have time for you too.
I enjoy very much going to school there. I feel comfortable in some classes and with some teachers. The biggest thing that concerns me is the education. I feel like some teachers don't really care about students education. They don't have that dedication to making a change in the students education.
