Send them off with a lunch, a backpack – and a sigh of relief

No, that happy feeling you have inside isn’t because they’re leaving. It’s because of where they’re going. From elementary through high school, Pradera children attend highly respected Douglas County Schools. Which means parents can relax and know their kids are getting a great education: one that’s only minutes away, making the early morning rush out the door a little easier.

Pradera elementary schools and Pradera high schools are at the top of the class. The Douglas County School District (DCSC) is a leader in Colorado’s public education, outpacing state performance in every grade and on every subject tested by the Colorado Student Assessment Program (CSAP).

Support and coordination can be found at the district level, but each school has the flexibility to build its own instructional programs. Parents at Pradera can choose from a variety of elementary schools with open enrollment, charter schools, instruction for gifted and talented students, magnet schools, an International Baccalaureate program, Advanced Placement courses and many other special programs. And the district champions a well-researched, integrated and standards-based curriculum, a rich array of extracurricular offerings and strong community involvement.

Currently, Pradera children attend these nearby Douglas County Schools.
