Glenwood Springs Middle School is currently accepting enrollment for students for the 2008-09 school year. Enrollment forms may be picked up in the main office.

For questions, please call 384-5500.

St. Stephen’s School is growing and has an official opening for a kindergarten teacher as two sections of kindergarten are set for the fall.

Candidates should have an elementary teaching degree and have K-8 certification or be certifiable for Colorado licensure.

Interested candidates are sought for other grades as well for potential openings.

Candidates are asked to send credentials to Principal Dr. Tom Alby at St. Stephen’s Catholic School, 414 S. Hyland Park, Glenwood Springs; or call 945-7746 for more information.

Parents interested in a strong academic education with religious instruction, solid discipline and a family-oriented atmosphere are invited to contact St. Stephen’s Catholic School for potential registration for fall enrollment. Interested parents may contact the school office at 945-7746 and ask for Alby to discuss registration.

For the third year in a row, St. Stephen’s Catholic School has been recognized for strong results in the Iowas Test of Basic Skills testing program. The ITBS is administered to most schools in the country, and St. Stephen’s School achieved a near 70 percent nationwide percentile rating. All grades were at the equivalent of approximately one grade level above their present grade. Grade 7 achieved at a composite grade level of 9.3 and Grade 8 students recorded a composite grade level of 10.5.

The ITBS is a norm-referenced exam, and it is difficult to compare results with CSAP results, as Colorado uses in public schools. The CSAP is a criterion-referenced exam, and is designed to measure specific knowledge, as compared to general knowledge in the ITBS exam.

Both testing procedures are solid and serve as strong indicators of performance achievement level.

Yampah Mountain High School is accepting applications for the 2008-09 school year. Please call Rachel at 945-9463 or stop by 695 Red Mountain Drive, Glenwood Springs.
