Since you specifically note about G/T you may want to take a look at this page here on the Douglas County School District website. Not every school has a GT program in DCSD - this program is called the Discovery Program.
Once you get into the middle school and high school years, things change. Some schools will group the GT kids together by core group others do not. In high school, the options open up even more with IB Programs, AP classes and Honors curriculum.
Hope that helps!
Check out our new custom homes in Douglas County.
One reason is that there is not a large low income population. Thus, instead of dumbing down the classes to accommodate non-English speaking students - they focus on actual education.
If you like an active suburb a great place to look for newer homes in Douglas County is Heritage Hills, near Park Meadows Mall. For a slower pace see Pradera Colorado.
You can research programs for gifted students at the Douglas County schools website, http://www.dcsdk12.org

Both cities offer Douglas County schools as the other agents have mentioned and they are very good. What is your price range and I will run a custom search for you? You can also see all the homes available on my easy to use website.
All great answers below. I have a website tool you may be interested in; it gives you unfiltered access to the local listing system - the same one we agents use - you can do a search for homes within the district you are interested in plus it incorporates each school's information so you can see details like % that graduated and other ratings. It also gives you aerial views of anything you are interested in like homes, schools, what are around these locations and more. It is the best home searching tool in the nation because it is fully integrated with the listing system and therefore is totally up to date.
Let me know if you are interested. You can contact me at 303.523.5534 or email me at Karin.Fischer@Buyers-Advantage.net

Both are nice towns relatively close-in to the metro Denver area. Both have their pros and cons, depending on your particular needs. I have been a Douglas County resident for nearly 20 years and all my children attended Douglas County schools.
I would be happy to answer specific questions and provide you with additional information, as well as information on specific homes that might fit your needs.
Best of luck with your home search!

I believe that both Districs are great. You can research both. If I was considering both Castle Rock and Parker I would really take what I feel is the best of both worlds and take a look at Castle Pines (which is considered Castle Rock) which is conveniently located between Castle Rock and Parker. It's a little slice of heaven.
