Peak to Peak Charter School is an excellent school, particularly for college readiness and all academics. The teachers are very well chosen and create good, genuine connections with the students. There are many opportunities not available at other schools, such as free preparation for standardized tests and the college application process. The staff does everything to ensure students pass their classes and get all of the required credits. There are many clubs, and students are allowed to make clubs if they so desire. The music department is very good.

Peak to Peak is a really great school that provided incredible guidance through my four years, and especially during the college application process of senior year. I loved my time here! The school spirit could be better, but it's definitely improved over the years, and the social scene is characterized by competition and can feel clique-y at times. Overall, the amazing education and general experience I had at Peak to Peak far outweigh the things that I would change. Go Pumas!
Peak to Peak is great academically and is definitely the reason that many of the kids at the school get into great universities. However, the school is really small, and many of the kids have attended since early elementary years, so the social aspect of the school is incredibly lacking.
The teaching staff, however, is absolutely amazing and from my experience, 9/10 teachers are incredibly involved with the kids, and in many instances they have been better instructors than the professors that I have had at my Top 20 University.
