Woodland Park Colorado Schools
Education is the foundation for a vital community. Woodland Park School District Re-2 invites all area citizens to become partners with the District’s education staff, for we believe a PERSONAL INVESTMENT IN EDUCATION is an investment in the future of Teller County.
The educational programs of the District have focused on maintaining a balance between offering traditional instruction in basic skills while also providing students the innovative, exciting instruction they will need as they grow up in a dynamic and changing society. In addition to this balanced academic program, students can participate in a full range of co-curricular activities. Award-winning activities include art, band, drama, forensics, vocal music, and sports.
The Woodland Park School District is fully accredited by the Colorado Department of Education. Accreditation is certification by the State Board of Education that public schools and school districts establish standards and goals to be met according to the accreditation indicators and State Board rules and regulations.
All of the District’s educational facilities have been extensively renovated or constructed since 1988. Each of three elementary school facilities accommodates Kindergarten through Grade Five. In addition, all three elementary schools have preschool programs for children three and four years of age. The enrollment for each of these schools is between 450 and 500 students. Approximately 800 students in Grades Six through Eight attend Woodland Park Middle School. Woodland Park High School is a Grade Nine through Twelve complex of over 1,000 students.
Woodland Park students consistently hold the fourth highest score position of all districts in the Pikes Peak region on the Colorado Student Assessment Program (CSAP). Terra Nova Multiple Assessment results are above average to well-above average. There are programs for Gifted and Talented as well as services for students who are struggling with academics. Extended Learning Opportunities (ELO) provide support for many students.
Woodland Park High School is proud of the 105 varied course offerings including 6 Honors courses and 5 Advanced Placement courses. The District has an ambitious five-year program to update texts and teaching materials for all core academics from Kindergarten through Twelfth Grade and many elective and exploratory areas.
In 1966, five men recognized the need for Christian education in Colorado Springs and began meeting weekly for prayer concerning their vision for a Christ-centered school. After five years of diligent prayer, in 1971, God opened the necessary doors for CSCS to be established. This firm dedication to a biblically focused education program grounded in prayer continues today.
Celebrating our 40th year, CSCS offers students a well-rounded education - from a comprehensive academic program to a full complement of co-curricular opportunities. All courses are taught from a Christ-centered, biblical perspective by a committed and caring faculty. As an independent, non-denominational school, CSCS is accredited by the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) and the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA CASI).
Most significantly, Christian character-building is emphasized with daily Bible courses, weekly chapel services, and a myriad of opportunities for student volunteer service.
