When helping people find just the right home in Denver’s northern suburbs, I have found that schools become a priority for many Buyers. This week U. S. News and World Report chose Lafayette’s Peak to Peak Charter School as one of the best in the country. Lafayette is a charming suburb located half way between downtown Denver and Boulder. It’s public schools are fairly well ranked already. But, this charter school is really amazing.
The ranking of 47th was based on scores instate reading and math tests, participation and performance on advanced-placement tests and proficiency rates on state tests for the schools “least advantaged” student groups, according to the Boulder Daily Camera. 5280 Magazine
