It gives me great pleasure to announce the Adams 12 Board of Education unanimously approved a 5-year charter extension for Westgate Community School on January 17. I am proud of the growth our school has achieved over our last charter period of three years.
Since our last charter renewal, Westgate:
- Improved State Achievement Scores by 15 points - Rated as a Performance School each year - Is currently the Top Achieving Charter School in Adams 12 - Is in the top 13 schools in Colorado for Achievement Growth - Increased our General Fund to make the school more fiscally sound - Increased enrollment from 452 students in 2015 to 512 in 2017 - Graduated two classes from the high school
- One third of HS graduates earned an Associates Degree or Advanced Certificate while attending Westgate. - Built Phase I of the Westgate Environmental Campus which includes our AMAZING play ground - Remained faithful to our founding Mission and Vision to provide innovative Whole Child education to students K-12
A huge thank you goes out to our amazing teachers and staff! Their commitment to inclusive gifted education with social-emotional learning at its core is at the heart of our school’s success. Their passion for Westgate is visible in the work they do each day with our students. Their uncommon kindness, courage and dedication is to be commended.
Thank you for being a part of our community! I can't wait to see what we achieve together over the next five years!
