How to Evaluate a School

When you have a list of schools that you are interested in sending your child to, follow these steps.

Step 1: Look at School Academic Performance

Go to SchoolView.org. This Colorado Department of Education website provides state assessment data for each public school district and school.

Prepare a list of questions you can ask while visiting the school. Talk to the principal, teachers, students, and other parents at the school to get your questions answered. The web sites listed below will help you think about questions to ask.

Step 3: Visit the School

Call the school office to set up a time to meet with the principal and tour the school.
