Congratulations to the Deer Creek teachers, students, and our community for earning the John Irwin School of Excellence Award! This award recognizes schools who demonstrate excellent academic achievement over time as measured by the Colorado Measures of Academic Success (CMAS) with exceptional performance in Math, English Language Arts, and Science.

Academic achievement is determined by “exceeding” expectations on the school performance framework used by the state to evaluate schools. Deer Creek is one of 27 schools in Jeffco to receive the award this year, and most notably, Deer Creek is just one of two middle schools who received the award in Jeffco.

We’d like to thank our students for demonstrating what they know and are able to do on the CMAS state assessment last school year. Thank you to families for valuing your student’s participation in the CMAS assessment. At Deer Creek, we do use the data to create school-wide goals, team goals and individual student goals. Last school year, our participation rate for CMAS was 98%, allowing us to exceed the 95% participation rate required to be eligible to be awarded.
