I'm a relative newbie here so don't want to overstep the boundaries, but I wanted to put a plug in for DCIS schools for families moving to Denver. As we were restricting our home search to the usual school boundaries that would put our kids in the best Denver public schools, we almost missed DCIS. It is seldom mentioned here but in our short 7 month residency I met a number of parents who were trying to choice into DCIS AT Fairmont. It was recently reopened and everyone I've spoken with is extremely pleased. Additionally, the DCIS HS which is fed by Fairmont is ranked #13 in Colorado.
Just something to consider for those looking to relocate and love Baker! Thoughts from you all who are natives??

Is there an enrollment map for DCIS Fairmont or is it a school you have to choice into?

There is a boundary for the elementary school within Baker but I'm not sure exactly how the high school operates. It seems, and I could be wrong, that there are choice spots available because it is still a bit of a hidden gem. I do know that if the child is in the elementary they are automatically able to attend the HS. We didn't realize this at first because all of the homes in the area are listed as feeding into West HS, which wasn't an option for us. Hope that helps!

People who move into Denver have to attend their local school for the first year and then choice in, so it's hard to recommend schools that require this step. I have done some google searches and I can't find DCIS Fairmont's attendance map. If you have a link to it, please post it.
