Gold Rush exceeded state standards for both student achievement and academic growth as measured by the 2022 Colorado Measures of Academic Success Assessment (CMAS). Student achievement is defined as the number of students meeting or exceeding state standards. Growth, on the other hand, focuses on all students’ rate of progress regardless of their achievement level. Gold Rush exceeded achievement measures in English Language Arts and Math and exceeded growth targets for English Language Arts.
Based on the school's overall performance, the State of Colorado awarded Gold Rush 90.9 points out of 100! Gold Rush received more points than 77 other Douglas County Schools! I attribute our results to the students’ daily stamina and effort, our teachers’ unwavering commitment to best practices and our partnership with families. I could not be more proud of our students’ and school’s success!
