After a lot of research and several visits to the area, we have decided to purchase our home in District 12 mostly because of our daughter. She is an only child, a serious student who also wants to enjoy playing outside during free-time, engage in a multitude of nearby activities and enjoy lots of neighborhood friends. She is 13 years old and as a military brat, she has experienced more than her share of adjustments. We'd like to find a warm and welcoming neighborhood. We were considering Top of Skyway or Spires of Broadmoor, what is the difference in "culture and demographics" between the two areas?

Default We're moving back...

We lived in District 12 for years near Broadmoor Glen. We are also in the process of PCS'ing back to the Springs after being in Idaho for a bit. We have a 12 year old daughter who will be attending Cheyenne Mountain Junior High as well as a 10 y/o son, 4 y/o son and 2 y/o daughter. What grade will your daughter be entering? We are looking to buy a home near either the Broadmoor Glen area or up the hill toward the Spires. We have looked at the Top of Skyway but think the area south of there is more for us. The neighborhoods get a bit dicey over there. At least for us anyway. The glen is just full of kids to hang out with. There is also a city bus that takes the kids to the middle and high school from this area as there is no school bus at all for district 12, which is a good thing. Carpools are everywhere too. I like being close to Ft Carson for the commissary, etc. My husband is working with Army Space Command out at Peterson and previously was at Fort Carson so being on the Spires end of town made his commute a bit easier/shorter. Also, on the Spires end of town, you'll find more people who are either in the military now, just out, live on post/base or civilians working on post...our kids had more in common with the kids on the Spires end, it seemed, especially when the deployments were really heavy and a new concept for everyone, especially the kids.
When do you arrive?

Your response confirms a lot of what my husband and I have observed. Thank you! We arrive in COS on Friday, the 20th of July (in just a few days!). Our daughter will enter the 8th grade next month. When do you arrive?
