9 Parent Reviews for Flatirons Elementary School

There are a few good teachers at this school and then some very poor teachers who even after more training could re-think their career paths. Tenure for teachers is not always a good thing for the students. We are finding third grade to be particularly of a low standard and disappointing. The neighborhood ...  Read more

This school has the makings of a real gem and could be with just a bit more input into hiring of teachers with more skills and dedication. If you don't care about academics or strong foundational skills you will probably be fine here. The principle is kind with a strong work ethic and wants every child ...  Read more

Flat irons is a place full of exploration and encouragement. My son has truly blossomed while at flat irons.

I am not impressed, though I think the status quote is being met some what. The lack of concern for safety is my biggest complaint. I notified the front office about the way a school bus would park ( with front angled towards the street ) blocking the view of a crosswalk sigh making northbound traffic ...  Read more

Our experience relates indirectly to Flatirons and indirectly to all of the elementary schools in the district. If you are relocating to Boulder, visit the schools and do your research. In general we found the attitude of the school environment (including district, school and parents) to be complacent. ...  Read more

Our 2nd grade experience included excellent personalized attention from a fantastic teacher, some great creative activities in the classroom, and an environment that fosters personal academic growth, improved social skills, and good discipline. We wouldn't recommend this school nor it's sponsored after-school ...  Read more
