Neighborhood Schools

Each neighborhood in Jefferson County has an assigned elementary, middle, and high school. While all neighborhood schools share the same commitment to providing a quality education for all students, each school is a unique reflection of its students, staff, and parents. Many neighborhood schools have special programs like STEM, career/tech, leadership, arts, gifted and talented, special education centers, and academic emphasis areas. 

Use our School Finder to view a profile on each Jeffco school, including  programs offered, before-and-after school options, and other information about the school.

Charter Schools

A charter school is a public school operated by a group of parents, teachers and/or community members. The district’s charter schools operate under a contract or “charter” between the school and the Jefferson County Board of Education. They offer a variety of focuses ranging from Montessori education to Core Knowledge curriculum.
