BEST SCHOOLS IN BROOMFIELD, CO
Schools can be a very important consideration when deciding to relocate your family to an area, and it is part of the process we go through when identifying areas you might like to live if you have school-aged children. Though Broomfield became its own City and County in 2001, the public schools in Broomfield actually fall under 5 different county school districts; Jefferson County, Boulder Valley, Adams 12 Five Star, St. Vrain Valley, and Weld County. This might be a little overwhelming at first, especially if you are interested in certain areas and have a specific school district in mind. The City of Broomfield has a good boundary map on their website you can use to understand the school district boundaries. Overall, the City of Broomfield boasts some excellent public schools. A resource we like to use to help identify if a school is the right fit is Great Schools. This site also provides scores for private and charter schools in the event you are interested in other options.
