2014-2015 PARCC Scores

NRE Students Obtain Top Scores on the State Assessment!

The results of the state assessments of English Language Arts (ELA) and Math were released and, once again, Northridge students obtained some of the highest scores in the state. As can be seen on this document, the average scores for NRE students were significantly above average for the nation, state and district.  In fact, we ranked 1st, 2nd or 3rd in Math and ELA when compared to other elementary schools in the district.  While the results of any assessment should not be interpreted in isolation, these scores align with the other indicators that our teachers are providing students with a solid, well rounded education.

Well done to NRE’s students and teachers.

The Douglas County School District (DCSD) Board of Education has named Thomas S. Tucker, Ph.D. as the sole finalist to lead our 68,000-student district as superintendent on a unanimous vote.


The American School Counseling Association (ASCA) has certified Sagewood Middle School as a Recognized ASCA National Model Program (RAMP). A prestigious honor, Sagewood is now the only middle school in the state of Colorado to have gained this certification. Schools must receive a near-perfect score on ASCA’s scoring rubric, which outlines guidelines for building and maintaining student achievement, behavior, counseling curriculum, school culture, and several other factors, in order to become certified.
