The answers can be very subjective. For example, how important is it for your children to have high technology, cultural diversity or small class sizes in the schools they attend? Different people will have different answers. Some people want an elementary school with a reputable arts and music program. Others families need a junior high with a great special needs department. Simply put, certain schools can meet individual student and family needs better than others. Denver School Ratings

You will notice most of the list includes schools in the southern suburbs of Denver. Predominately, they are in Cherry Creek, Littleton, Douglas County and Jefferson County school districts. These tend to be the best funded districts and are very well rated overall. Please contact your Realtor for the best specific information.
