As a mom and realtor who has toured many of the schools in Arvada, I must say we are lucky! There are so many wonderful schools to choose from.
IN South Arvada a shining gem is Foster Elementary school with the Dual Language Immersion program to teach children fluency in Spanish and English. It's a fabulous program with many dedicated and caring teachers. By grade 6 all student sin the program are bilingual, biliterate and bicultural. In today's global market having a a second language is critical to success and what easier way to acquire a second language than starting in Kindergarden!
In North Arvada there is Mikelejohn Elementary schools, one of the newest schools in the Jefferson County school system. It has a stunning view of the Flatirons and an exemplary track record for teaching basic skills in math, reading and writing. The kids who opt to attend will most certainly feel a part of the greater MJ family here.
There are four high schools in Arvada: Ralston Valley, Arvada West, Pomona and Arvada High School. After visioning all four schools I can honestly say, you can't go wrong. Pomona has a very arts-centered curriculum and an outstanding band program. Ralston Valley is known for their excellence in college preparation and sports programs. Arvada West aims for a well rounded student and Arvada HS has one of the most caring principals I've run across.
I feel privileged to live here and be able to choose any of the amazing schools Arvada has to offer. To see which homes are in which school's boundaries, please click here
