Schools can also be a very important consideration when deciding to relocate a family to an area, and it is part of the process we go through when identifying areas you might like to live when there are educational requirements for your family. Even though Broomfield became it's own City and County in 2001, the public schools in Broomfield actually falls 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, especially if you are zeroing in on certian areas and have a specific school district in mind. The City of Broomfield has a good website you can use, and here is a link to the Boundary Map for a closer look. The City of Broomfield overall really boasts some excellent public schools, and a resource we like to commonly use to help identify if a school is the right fit is by visiting Great Schools. This site will also provide scores for private and charter schools as well in the event you are not wanting to use public education.
