Peak to Peak is a great school academic wise, there are lots of high level classes available for kids that want to take them. My experience with the counseling staff has been wonderful. They really care about the students and really are trying to work on the problem of competitiveness and 'grade-focused' aspect of the school. I wish the school was a little bigger; everybody knows everybody and everything about their personal lives which can be really tough at times and has even been a contributing factor to students leaving the school. However the size of the school allows for a hands on learning environment and great relationships with the teachers. They all really care about the students as people and truly want to help them exceed. The only other thing I would change would be school spirit, we don't have a football team, and sports games aren't regularly attended. The main option for food sometimes isn't the best but there is are wonderful soups, subs and salads.
Review Peak to Peak Charter School
I have been a student at Peak to Peak for 13 years, and I've seen the nitty-gritty of the school first hand. For starters, the school takes pride in its academic rigor, which often interrupts the personal time of students to relax or even sleep. The high school counseling team is awesome, but they tend to focus more on the underprepared members of the class with preppy and often ridiculous activities. Overall, the administration (excluding teaching staff) is friendly and personable, but nearly all of them seem to be in it for the parents of the kids, and not for the education of the kids themselves. Teachers are awesome in the elementary and most of the high school, but the middle school is sub par when it comes to likable teaching staff. My experience at Peak to Peak has been mostly positive, although I would hesitate to send my kids here in the future.
This school is an excellent school. They feature rigorous academics, plenty of extracurricular options (like theatre, choir, clubs, sports, etc.), and a wonderful environment. The teachers make classes fun and interesting, boosting the standard of excellence that Peak to Peak carries. It was wonderful to go here. Highly recommended!
