Welcome to Longs Peak Middle School
At Longs Peak Middle School, our staff and community work in partnership for the common goal of building the 21st century skills necessary to prepare all students for higher education. We are a college preparatory school implementing the College Board Pre-Advanced Placement curriculum. Our dedicated faculty values academic rigor while offering opportunities to enrich the character and experiences of the whole child, in a culturally diverse community.
Core Beliefs and Expectations
- We build strong and supportive relationships with students, their families, and the extended Longs Peak community.
- We educate our students in many ways, with our primary focus on improving student achievement while fostering rigorous academic, artistic and athletic experiences.
- We value parental collaboration and communication and believe that they are essential to supporting students' academic and personal growth.
Longs Peak focuses on high academic and behavioral standards for all students. All grade level teachers use common reading, writing, and math rubrics as well as common assessments. Throughout the year, enrichment and remediation classes are implemented, and the staff continues to differentiate instruction to meet the needs of all learners. As a result, reading, writing, and math scores continue to increase as shown by TCAP test scores and the STAR reading comprehension assessment.
