Open Quote FREE COLLEGE! A school that actually puts its money towards helping the students?!? I couldn't believe it when I heard about it. Having worked in three of the largest school districts in the city, $4 million in 6 years directly to students' college expenses was unheard of. Colorado Springs Early Colleges is an amazing opportunity for students with the vision and drive to get where they want to go. I was shocked by the high student-to-teacher ratio shown on this website until I realized that it's wrong! Many students attend classes at the local colleges. On-site classes are small. Currently, my classes have 10 - 23 students in them, which is incredible compared to big district schools with class sizes of 35-50 students. The students, staff, and parents are amazing and caring. I can't imagine anywhere else that I'd want to be. Close Quote

Open Quote As a parent, I am excited about the opportunity this school provides for my son. They sincerely work with each individual to help them attain their personal goals. The teachers work long hours to help any student who sincerely wants to improve. The leadership of the school is always innovating new ways to help more students. Close Quote

Open Quote Aside from CSEC, what other school can say that they had a high school student graduate with a bachelor's degree? Close Quote

Open Quote Colorado Springs Early Colleges was an excellent alternative for friends of mine when a local private school closed down. The environment there is wholesome. Dress codes and rules are enforced to ensure a safe environment. Teachers go beyond the call to be sure of students are succeeding and parents are informed and involved. Students are take and keep college credit (instead of just AP courses that do not retain college credit). There are a myriad of study labs to ensure college readiness and one on one assistance. What more could you ask for? Close Quote

Open Quote As a teacher at CSEC, I have to say it is the best school I have worked at. We have an amazing passionate staff that cares about student success, not only in the classroom but also in life. We have standards and expectations that lead to student success. We offer free college classes and you can graduate high school with an associate’s degree. Close Quote

Open Quote This school has the amazing opportunity to offer students free college classes while in High School. Is your student ready for a challenging High School experience that will allow them to get a jump start on their college career?

Colorado Springs Early Colleges offers a wide range of opportunities for students to take advantage of, as our mission statement proclaims, "Every student, regardless of background or skill level, will achieve mastery and will demonstrate that they can succeed in high school, in college, and in their chosen career. No exceptions. No excuses." Close Quote

Open Quote As a staff member of CSEC, I see a lot of aspects that students and parents don't see. In every school in every city, there are flaws...it is not a perfect system and education in our country has many challenges to overcome. CSEC is a great school for students willing to work hard and are motivated to succeed. The administration has a passion for seeing these students through to the end and put a lot of sweat and tears into the vision and mission of our school. The opportunity that CSEC provides is needed so badly in today's economy and society and I couldn't imagine grabbing on and not letting go if I had the chance! Close Quote

Open Quote As a teacher at CSEC, I thoroughly enjoy the students, staff and academics. I've taught for many years in the public school system and I find CSEC to be refreshingly different. The standards of behavior, dress, and rigor are far superior to what I've worked with in the past. These students are developing skills, abilities and attitudes that will make them successful in college and in life. I love working here. Close Quote

Open Quote While the opportunity is great, CSEC is a failure at organization. While Robin Zooks was in charge of enrollments and new students it was fantastic...now it is horrible. I and many friends enrolled children with CSEC this year and were told they were enrolled. NOW we find out they are NOT enrolled, and many of us can't get our kids into the school. This has been a nightmare and caused many tears and anxiety. If you could do that it would be great -- but right now it is just a nightmare. If you say they are enrolled and everything is good to go, you'd better have it right. Right now, you don't. Get the paperwork together and this will be a 5* place. Right now it is at best 2* because CSEC cannot do what they say they will do. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
