About

Learn Today, Lead Tomorrow

The Douglas County School District is Colorado's third-largest school district, serving more then 68,000 students in preschool through twelfth-grade.

Douglas County School District teachers and staff are leaders of public education in Colorado, with many innovative educational approaches tailored to our students. Support and coordination can be found at the District level, but each school has the flexibility to build its own instructional programs. Parents can find many different choices through the District such as open enrollment, charter schools, instruction for gifted and talented students, magnet schools, an International Baccalaureate program, Advanced Placement courses and other special programs. Our vision is to "create responsible citizens who contribute to society." We strive to maintain a well-researched, integrated and standards-based curriculum, a rich array of extracurricular offerings and strong community involvement.
