Academic Overview

Longs Peak focuses on the whole child with high academic and behavioral standards for all students. All grade level teachers use iReady Reading and Math assessments throughout the year to track student growth and individualize instruction to meet student’s needs. A wide range of enrichment and targeted intervention classes are implemented based on data so that students maximize their learning potential. As a result, reading, writing, and math scores continue to increase as shown by CMAS test scores.
