I don't know Antelope Meadows, only Antelope Ridge. Sorry I can't help.
Pueblo has excellent colleges and CO doesn't have a high need for private schools, our public schools are pretty decent.
I graduated from HS in 1995 but things have changed big time. All I am saying Jossie is that the school system has changed since since we went and being an educator myself, I haven't come across any teachers who like D60. That doesn't mean that parents don't, just ever administrator and educator I have personally met can't stand the district- I don't know everybody though.

Hmm ok I will see if I can do some research on the area. We are talking to a real estate agent so hopefully he can shed some light on the area. Thanks for all your help

That's a good point, I was coming strictly from a non employee of the district and a former student who loved high school. But what you say is interesting, I would like to go into that in more detail. Why do they not like district 60 and what would it take for Pueblo as a community to change that, a strong school district would make for a stronger Pueblo.....

The subdivision is called The Gables. Antelope Meadows is a major street in the sub. Which house number are you looking at? I know of a few for sale near me in the sub.

Maybe he was talking about the superior D70 schools of County, Pueblo West, and Rye. I dare ya to badmouth those schools administration. I dare ya! I dare ya! I know many of those folks personally and they have excellent academic and athletic programs. You don't even have to pay the big bucks to get your kids into a safer charter school like what they do in the big cities like Colorado Springs and the Denver Metro.

Smaller schools out in Rye and Colorado City means better teachers-to-student ratio and better accountability.
