- Boulder Valley School District
With 56 schools, approximately 30,000 students and over 4,000 employees, BVSD comes in at number one on the best Colorado School Districts list. With a promise of “Excellence and equity” BVSD consistently ranks among the top three of CO’s Front Range Colorado school districts. BVSD students have earned millions in scholarships and score well above the state and national averages on ACT and SAT scores.
BVSD Covers: Boulder, Gold Hill, Jamestown, Lafayette, Louisville, Nederland, Superior, Ward, and parts of Broomfield and Erie.
- Aspen School District No. 1
The Aspen School District’s mission reads “Students will realize their full potential, appreciate the relevance of their education, be excited to learn, and be empowered for success.” Aspen School District ranks at number two for Best Colorado School Districts, earning itself an A+ in almost all categories according to Niche. It’s only downfall is its lack of diversity. They have a unique Outdoor / Experiential educational program that sets ASD apart from other schools.
ASD Schools: Aspen High School, Aspen Middle School, Aspen Elementary School, Cottage Preschool, and Aspen Community School.
- Cheyenne Mountain School District No. 12
Third on the list of Colorado School Districts falls Cheyenne Mountain School District No. 12. A bit of a mouthful, but CMSD prides itself on tradition, pride, culture, sportsmanship and respect. The district is located in the Southwest corner of Colorado Springs, and has a total enrollment of about 4,600 in preschool through 12th grade, with a total of nine different schools including one Charter school.

CCSD makes it fourth on this list. Cherry Creek school district reaches over 54,000 children and spread over eight municipalities. CCSD prides itself on its excellence and on being a pillar of education and community. It’s mission and values involve “inspiring every student to think, learn achieve and care” and aim to place the needs and welfare of students above all else.
CCSD Covers: Cherry Hills Village, Centennial, Foxfield, Glendale, Greenwood Village and parts of Aurora, Englewood and Denver.
- Littleton Public Schools
“Big enough to serve you, small enough to know you.” This motto is exactly what you want in a school you’re sending your child. Overpopulation in schools makes it tough for teachers to properly care for and teach individual children. This school district does its best to combat that. LPS is the only school district in the Denver metro area to receive the Colorado Department of Education’s highest accreditation rating five years in a row.
LPS Covers: City of Littleton, Town of Columbine Valley, and parts of Bow Mar, Centennial, Greenwood Village and the City of Englewood.
Overall our Colorado school’s are pretty exemplary, and they only seem to get better. If you’re starting your family plans, I would highly consider any one of these school districts. It’s reassuring to know no matter where you want to live; mountains, front range or in more metro areas, your kids will be covered with a great educational experience.
