  • Legacy Foundation Advanced Placement Grant ($300,000)
  • District named 2012 'Large Business of the Year' by Longmont Chamber of Commerce
  • Highest 3rd grade reading scores in our district's history for the past three years
  • Numerous John Irwin School of Excellence Awards (Colorado's top 8 percent high performing schools)
  • Several Colorado Trailblazer 'School to Watch' Awards
  • Numerous Governor's Distinguished Improvement Awards
  • Winner - Several Colorado Principal of the Year Awards for district principals

Our entire community benefits significantly when we work together to build and maintain a strong system of public schools.
