Inside one Colorado middle school's last-ditch effort to save itself by raising scores without test prep


In just weeks, Principal Chadwick Anderson and his team at M. Scott Carpenter Middle School will learn whether three years of hard work have paid off.

Colorado’s latest set of test scores, set for release in August, will determine whether the school and 28 others will get to stay open in their current form. The schools have been on the state’s academic watch list for chronic poor performance for five years and have run out of time to improve on their own.

Now, if Scott Carpenter’s test scores don’t rise, the school could become one of the first to be shut down, turned over to a charter network, or be dramatically redesigned under the state’s school accountability law.
