I lived right up the street and choiced in to Air Academy. There is a few bus routes that go by the area, as District 20 begins on the opposite side of centennial.

Don't kid yourself (no pun intended), ask anyone with kids, and the answer is always District 20. You want to live in the D20 area as well ie. Briargate/Pine Creek/Cordera, provided you can afford it that is. NO I don't live there...yet...waiting for my next promotion! ... more

this is about a 30 minute normal drive from Ft Carson - just take Highway I-25 to 15 and you are at any of the Ft Carson gates.

Federal Equal Housing Opportunity Laws prevent Real Estate Professionals from "Steering" people to or from specific areas buy giving personal observations in answer to your question and the long and short of it is that no one can determine how much crime may be too much for you...only you can do that.

I always recommend that my clients check the crime information reported by the CSPD & El Paso Sheriff's Office available at and as well as at the CSPD ( and El Paso Sheriff's Office Websites (

I also highly recommend to my clients that, if possible, they or a friend drive the neighborhood surrounding a property they are interested in at least twice...once during the day and once in the evening...and look for how the other properties in the neighborhood are kept and as well as to determine if there are any aspects to the neighborhood they aren't comfortable with.

Once you have determined your level of comfort with the neighborhood then would be the time to schedule a showing on to see the interiors for yourself.

I hope you find this information of use and I wish you good fortune in your search. If you would like more assistance in purchasing a home in the Colorado Springs/Pikes Peak Region, please feel free to contact me.

Best Regards

There is a pair of routes that operate on S. Nevada a few blocks away from St. Elmo. The route #10 is a Mon-Fri route & #11 is a Mon-Sat route with evening services. Also, route #16 runs along S. Tejon street Mon-Fri. All 3 are hourly routes, although the 10 & 11 alternate making trips to & from Downtown along S. Nevada every 30 mins on weekdays. ... more

Hi Chad,

Thanks for posting your quesiton. I see you are from TX...nice. My roots run through TX.

My wife is a teacher, and I like to think we have a decent idea of how the local schools work.

Hello Informed Parent,
We have an excellent State Department of Education here in Colorado which sets the guidelines for Charter schools. Here is what they say online regarding Charter schools and 504;
"Licensure requirements for special education service providers may not be waived. The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) is a federal law that requires that personnel providing the Individual Educational Program be appropriately trained and licensed. It is essential that charter school developers and those involved with them understand that there are no exemptions from any federal or special education law, including Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Title II of the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA), and the Individuals With Disabilities Education Act (IDEA)" I don't know about waivers but would suggest you contact Peak Parent Center at more detailed information regarding local schools with "best practices".
Hope that helps. Please feel free to contact me if you are looking for a Realtor who understands families with special needs. Good luck
