From the Telluride Daily Planet:
What an unusual feeling to start the school year with tests already taken, and grades revealed — and to learn that you’d aced it.
Which is precisely what has happened in Telluride.
The state education department recently released its preliminary “district performance” and “school performance” statistics for 2019, and the Telluride School District is number one in all of Colorado.
And, there’s more good news: the Telluride Middle School was ranked the number one school in the state. The high school is in the top 2 percent of all schools in the state.
According to the Colorado Department of Education’s website, the ratings are based on “achievement and growth” on state assessment tests, “along with such postsecondary measures as graduation rates, drop-out rates, college entrance exams and college matriculation rates.”
Though Telluride has much to be proud of, the point of the ratings isn’t bragging rights — it’s to help the Colorado Department of Education the State Board of Education and “make decisions about how to help struggling schools.”
