We are D20. They start around the second week of August. Most of the districts around here will start anywhere from first to third week of August, depending on the school.

D12 and D20 typically float to the top with standardized data. D12 doesn't have school bus service. D20 is the second largest district in COS. D20 is closer to Denver should a person ever have to commute there.

D38 isn't in COS; it is in the Tri Lakes (Monument) area. It is very good too; closer to Denver; new high school opening Fall 2008.

I'd agree with this (D12 and D20) even without using standardized data -- I wouldn't have a problem with sending my kids to any elementary schools in either of these districts (I haven't really looked past elementary schools yet!).

There are also some very good schools in D11, but you'd really want to look at the neighborhood schools for your area.

Oh, and typically school starts mid-August

Default Schools

Other good districts that are smaller include Widefield, Manitou and Woodland Park - not in the city proper itself. Ones most often recommended for avoiding are D-2 Harrison and D-49 Falcon right now. But every district has some good schools.

Just out of curiosity why avoid D-49?

Overcrowding and funding issues.
