Pretty strong but needs work! We're slipping in our ratings. I am a parent of lots of P2P students. We've been in the community since the founding years. We appreciate all the school + excellent teachers give students. It is awesome to witness the positive development of students in their journey through this k-12 school. Yet, would like to see more parent-donated funds benefitting classrooms and teachers instead of conference rooms. Supporting student innovation instead of administrative. Would like to see P2P return to being more of the founders vision of a student-focused school where, as John F. Kennedy said "a rising tide lifts all boats".

I attended P2P from 2002 to 2014.

I found Peak to Peak to be an elitist environment. My senior year, I wanted to pursue a part time CNA program at Boulder Valley Tech. One of the counselors forbade me because it would tarnish the school's reputation. She told us Peak to Peak students were "too good" for technical programs. Instead, I took art, gym, and two study halls. I spent all year wandering the halls and ditching class .

I disliked the counseling staff because they pushed students towards private out-of-state liberal arts colleges. The staff told us that P2P students were superior and should not attend state schools. They said University of Colorado was only for "dumb kids" who attended public high school. The staff never talked about the cost of private tuition and the impact of long term debt.

Peak to Peak families believe their children are the most intelligent and special students to ever live and the staff supports their delusions.
When I was an underclassman at this school I really struggled with the lack of new students and only having around 120 kids in my entire grade. It felt very clique-y because most of the kids had known each other since kindergarten. But as I got into my junior year I absolutely loved the school. It became very apparent to me how much the staff members cared about us and I realized how ridiculously brilliant all my teachers were. My junior year teachers were the ones that helped me realize that I might want to pursue secondary education. The classes are tough but manageable because every one of your teachers want you to succeed so they will help you as much as they can. The staff also make sure that we have amazing events, school spirit, and happiness in general.
