Vail, CO Colorado

AVON, Colorado – Stone Creek Charter School had the top CSAP scores among local schools, and among the top in the state, according to the statewide results.

Stone Creek saw 96 percent of their third graders score proficient or advanced on the CSAP test. The county’s other charter school, the Eagle County Charter Academy, scored 94 percent of its third graders as proficient or advanced.

For the fourth consecutive year, Stone Creek third-graders’ reading scores have improved.

“This is the first look on the CSAP at this particular group of students and I’m very proud of their performance,” said John Brendza, Stone Creek headmaster. “The results indicate that our students continue to respond to the challenges of our school’s Core Knowledge program and the dedication of our teachers in meeting every student’s needs.”

The Colorado Student Assessment Program scores released this week measured reading skills among third graders across the state. The remaining CSAP results will be released in August, prior to the start of the new school year.

Stone Creek, the only Core Knowledge School in the Vail Valley, is relocating to a permanent location in Edwards for the 2011-2012 school year.
