Denver Area Public School Districts

A Guide to Metro Denver School Districts

The seven-county metro Denver area is home to 20 school districts in Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Denver, Douglas, Weld, and Jefferson counties. Together, they serve the educational needs of nearly 500,000 area children.

The following is a description of each district; for more detailed information on specific districts and schools (including individual district and school test results and rankings), visit the Colorado Department of Education website at

Important! Many of the school district websites offer an address look-up capability which allows prospective renters and home purchasers to verify which schools a particular home address feeds into. Are schools a major component of your decision making process on which home to rent or purchase? Check out the address you are considering renting or purchasing! Good to trust...but verify...the school district info on line and via phone call with the school district before making a final decision!
