Ricks Center for Gifted Children Ratings & Reviews

July 31, 2018 Submitted by a parent
Good during early childhood years, but downhill after that. My child started at Ricks at the age of 4. His experience through second grade was wonderful. They catered to his style of learning, they taught him to think creatively, they taught him to be a self-advocate. He loved school so much he would make me drive by it in the summer, just to look at it. Things changed from third grade on. Teachers were hit or miss. The curriculum was uncoordinated, and depending on what teacher you had you might miss learning some basic elementary school skills. For example, my son's teachers were not as interested in teaching long division, or certain aspects of fractions or geometry, so he just never really learned that. We only realized it when, in 5th grade, he began interviewing at other private schools and was asked specifically about these types of math skills. Many parents at Ricks hire tutors in upper elementary and middle school to make sure their children are up to speed with national standards, but to me, given the amount of tuition we are paying, that seems to be an unnecessary cost.Socially, Ricks is a very small school after 2nd or third grade. This can lead to a very small social pool, particularly among boys, who seem to leave the school in droves in upper elementary/middle school. In my son's class, at the time of his departure, there were only 3 boys who intended to remain for the following year (Parents of girls may have different experiences, as more girls tend to stay on at Ricks ). Bullying is also rampant, and is compounded by the fact that there are not many other kids to drown out the influence of the bully. As for the administration, it has changed over four times since my son has attended the school. That type of instability in leadership has created an atmosphere of constant uncertainty, both among parents and teachers. Hopefully this is something that will stabilize eventually in upcoming years.Overall, I would say this is an excellent learning environment for early childhood years, but I would strongly recommend against spending the money to be here after 2nd grade or so. There are many other schools in the Denver metro area (both public and private) where your child can learn both creativity and innovation AND learn the basic skills needed to excel in high school and college (like long division, etc).

Despite the changes in administration, our child has loved being at Ricks. Even as we complain over administration, they continue to flourish. We are sending our other child there next year as well. You can't argue with a child who loves their school. Period.

NOT a gifted school. As a former teacher and parent at the Ricks center I can say that the school is entirely ineffective for gifted learners. The staff has virtually no control over the curriculum that you could find for free at any common core public school. The administration is controlled entirely by the University and has no true control may a problem arise. The over turn in staff is constant we lost almost the entire middle school staff this year as well as all of the third and fourth grade teachers. The graduating 8th grade class never finished the math curriculum and this was not reviled to the parents until after graduation when they were offered free summer school in order to assure that their children would be prepared for high school after paying 18,000 a year.!

It is sad what has happened to Ricks since the founder left in 2013. The school is now run by another new director, the 4th since 2013. The current director has just one year of gifted experience (decades ago), and is backed by a DU dean with zero gifted experience. Without knowledge of gifted education at the top, long-term teachers and administrators have fled, while the "new direction" the school has taken is anything but meeting the needs of gifted children. The new leadership implemented over-testing with standardized MAP tests despite protests from teachers, parents and students. A few outstanding teachers remain, but are severely stymied.

Ricks has been a great place for our PreK kiddo and our PreSchooler just starting his first school experience this year. The teachers are really amazing and the entire staff is focused on helping each and every kiddo to reach their potential. Our children love learning, due in large part to the great work of their teachers Ms. Jessica, Ms. Maddie, Ms. Whitney and Ms. Torey. Their dedication to the students and passion for teaching shines every day! The current administration (new this year) is really doing a great job.
