There have never been more options for Denver teenagers, so how do you find the best high school for your child? Modern education is about choice, and Denver schools-public and private-have adapted. We found surprising local programs where the curriculum isn't one-size-fits-all.
The days of walking around the corner to whatever high school happened to be in the neighborhood are long gone. Instead, Denver Public Schools hold annual lotteries for open enrollment for students hoping to gain admission to sought-after high schools that are a carpool away. Meanwhile, local private schools, unburdened by public-school red tape, offer creative and flexible solutions to educational problems. Sure, some teenagers will flourish in any school. But today education is no longer one-size-fits-all.
