Peak to Peak Charter School
1 Best Public Elementary Schools in Colorado
- Boulder Valley School District, CO
Senior: 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!

Collegiate Academy of Colorado

- Jefferson County School District No. R-1, CO
Parent: We are very grateful to have discovered Collegiate Academy of Colorado. Go Wolves! We initially transferred our children there due to the free full day kindergarten and that it was K-12. Only one stop for dropping off/picking up kids! The small class sizes have been wonderful for our children's education and the teachers are a truly great team. The leadership is strong and we love the "no-nonsense" attitude from the principal and vice principals. We plan on keeping our children enrolled through graduation!

Stargate Charter School
86 Best Public Elementary Schools in Colorado
- Adams 12 Five Star Schools, CO
Junior: My experience at Stargate was one that I enjoyed overall. I switched schools between 9th grade and 10th grade and found that I enjoyed being at Stargate much more than my previous school. While I am not the best student, I think of myself as well rounded and the school allowed for me to express myself through different classes. Many students at my school are very academically inclined and we lack in the sports section mostly because my school is very small. I am in the first graduating class which has around seventy people in it. Overall, however, I very much enjoyed my experience with Stargate though I am slightly disappointed in the sports because not many students are interested.

Parent: Our son is currently in the 2nd grade. He has been at the school for two years, and it has been a wonderful experience. The enthusiasm of the teachers, who are truly experts in the subjects they teach, is infectious. They consistently set high standards for all students at every stage of their academic career. This is a school that prioritizes academics and the students themselves; it is targeted to students with intellectual curiosity and a strong work ethic. We are very happy here!
