Platte Canyon High School
101 Best Public High Schools in Colorado
- Platte Canyon District, CO
Senior: Yes, it is a small school in a sparsely populated area with a lack of diversity and class options. But, that can't be helped. If the district could control the demographics of Bailey, I'm sure more diversity in all aspects and classes of all kinds would be available to a larger student population. More students would also benefit the school's budget and result in an increase of quality in food and so much more. But none of these things can change with the snap of a finger, so it's questionable as to why so many disprove of PC in these ways.
That said, what it does lack it makes up in as a clean, safe facility nestled in the gorgeous CO mountains with an excellent academic course taught by passionate teachers who are prepare students for college. It also offers a plethora of extracurriculars, including sports that are non-school affiliated as well as a successful drama/theatre department.
Though there are some things I would like to change, I am honestly very proud to be a Husky!

Parent: Norfolk Academy provided an extraordinary educational journey for my two children, fueling their curiosity and inspiring them to explore new avenues that they might not have discovered without the incredible teachers and coaches at this school. My oldest child, who came in sixth grade, now studies engineering at an Ivy League university; he particularly loved the robotics team, as well as soccer, swimming, and crew teams. My youngest child, who is a senior at NA, came in first grade, and she has developed a passion for medicine and health, largely through the school's Global Health Fellows program and the Medical Scholars program.
