"I have been very pleased with the Little Pups Preschool at Coyote Creek in Highlands Ranch. My schedule changes weekly and they are very accommodating with my schedule. My son can attend school full day or half day. The curriculum is very good and is preparing my son for Kindergarten. He is challenged but is very excited about learning. The teachers are very skilled and attentive to all of the children. I couldn't be happier with my decision to have my son attend the Little Pups Program at Coyote Creek." - Laura C.

"We have been thrilled with Little Pups Pre-K program at CCE. It is creative, progressive and helps keep our kids at the same school. What I love most about it is that the kids are modeled after the kindergarten and school age programs and move about CCE as the older kids do, having access to the Specials classes (Technology, Music, Art, P.E. and Library)." - Anissa S.

District News

High school students across Douglas County, and many students in respective feeder schools, are once again learning that a little kindness can go a long way. Again this year, our high schools hosted Wish Weeks to make dreams come true for Make-A-Wish Foundation beneficiaries.

The Douglas County School District (DCSD) Board of Education has named Thomas S. Tucker, Ph.D. as the sole finalist to lead our 68,000-student district as superintendent on a unanimous vote.


The American School Counseling Association (ASCA) has certified Sagewood Middle School as a Recognized ASCA National Model Program (RAMP). A prestigious honor, Sagewood is now the only middle school in the state of Colorado to have gained this certification. Schools must receive a near-perfect score on ASCA’s scoring rubric, which outlines guidelines for building and maintaining student achievement, behavior, counseling curriculum, school culture, and several other factors, in order to become certified.
