Peak to Peak School logoWe have always known Boulder County students have excellent choices for education but now the U.S. News and World Report confirms it.  In their recent 2014 rankings Lafayette’s Peak to Peak Charter School was named the #1 high school in Colorado with Boulder’s Fairview High School ranking #3.  This is great news for families all across the Boulder Valley area.

The rankings are primarily based on the percentage of students who take and pass advanced placement exams and on standardized test scores.  At Peak to Peak, 98 percent of their seniors took an advanced placement test and 81 percent passed.

Strong schools are often a significant component in determining the neighborhood search area for our buyers. A recent article in the Washington Post confirms that buyers on average are willing to pay $50 more per square foot for homes in top rated school districts compared to homes in average schools districts.
