I've posted a link below that may help. Note: Realtors have been warned to avoid answering questions like that, so you're not likely to get any sort of "great schools" or "bad schools" in response. And it really does vary--what I may consider a good school others may hate. For example, my son went to a small, very highly regarded public elementary school (Clifton Elementary School) in Clifton Virginia. He, and we, had a terrible experience with it. Other parents and kids loved it. Now he goes to a huge secondary school in Fairfax. For a number of reasons, we think it's great. Other parents and kids, though, don't like it. It's not they're wrong; it's just that they have different priorities and focus on different issues. One piece of advice I do feel brave enough to give: Talk to other parents about the school's administration--its principal and (if there is one) vice principal. Certainly ask about the teachers, etc. But school administrators can make or break a school.

Good luck to your daughter!

I'm sure if this was asked of Cherry Creek, everybody would be saying it's great. Stop the hate against Montbello.

Here is another link for you to check. It gives all the school systems in Colorado from Kindergarten to Sr High and how they rank. If you need other info check my website with the relocation info tab.

Don is right the law prohibits us from answering that question.

If you don't get insight on http://www.greatschools.com then try http://www.city-data.com and read the blogs there.

I always recommend going directly to the state's website and read the accountability reports. Opinions are great, but not always reliable.

Here is the link for CO:

Good luck,
