Hi Everyone,

We would be moving from India to Denver or Boulder Co in Jan 2018. Would like to know the following-

-if mid year school admissions in Jan 2018 to Grade 4 and Kindergarten grade will be tough or easy in Denver suburbs (Littleton, Highlands Ranch, Broomfield, Superior)?
-Any recommendations on schools that have racial diversity so that kids don't feel isolated or discriminated? Have been hearing that Denver and Boulder largely constitute white population and less diversity.
-Any recommendations of schools that have good sports facilities as well, unfortunately not able to find much about this on websites of schools.
-Any schools to avoid that have known instances of bullying due to lack of diversity?
-what is the best way to seek mid year admissions to schools- emailing schools or calling them up to check?
-is there an admission test which kids need to take or can the parents get them enrolled mid year after submitting the necessary documents and mark sheets/transcript of records? We were thinking of getting this done in the preview trip this month which might knock out one item of the checklist if possible

Thanks a lot for folks who are reading this post and are considering helping us out with the information.

You are guaranteed enrollment at your home school, mid year or not. You will not be able to enroll until you have a local address.

I've noticed a large Indian population in Highlands Ranch...I mean not super large, but prevalent.

Work is in Boulder. That commute would be miserable.

There will be a school assigned to you based on where you live. That school will have a spot for your children. There are no admissions tests, but they might test your children to accurately judge which classes they should be in. You want to select the school you want your children to go to and then pick a house that will allow your kids to go to that school.

All of the areas you have listed will be fine for your family. There is very little racial bullying here.

I would look for good schools with an Indian grocery store within a 15 min drive. An Indian Grocery store will be built near it's customers.

Kindergarten might be harder because it is not mandatory for children. Not all schools have full-day kindergarten, nor is enrollment guaranteed if the program is full.

Boulder Valley Schools is the best up there, and there is a fair amount of diversity in southern Boulder.

As others have noted you will be able to get into your boundary school which will depend on where you live. The only schools you need to test into on the North side of town are the Gifted and Talented schools, there are a few of these around.

Where you live will depend on where you work, the commute can be brutal from one side of Denver to the other and Boulder/Superior to Highland Ranch is quite a distance with traffic in play.

Boulder Valley School District is a really good district on the North side. I have several Indian friends and they have not had any issues with racial diversity here.

Do you know will work will be? This could give us more information to help with areas and schools.
