Central Park Stapleton Area Schools and Education

Central Park Area Schools

Central Park is home to a variety of public, charter, and private schools, and an educated and involved population which helps ensure that the schools provide the best opportunities to their students. According to a 2006 survey by Egg Strategy, 88%% of Central Park (then called "Stapleton") respondents were college graduates (3 times the national average), and nearly half have a post-graduate degree (5 times the national average).

As part of the DPS' "School Choice Program," students living within most of Central Park's neighborhoods are included in "enrollment zones" at the Elementary and Middle School levels. According to Denver Public Schools, "An enrollment zone is a geographic area where the students living within it are guaranteed a seat at one of several schools, not just one particular school."

Please note: a small section of the Central Park Community (in the Bluff Lake Neighborhood) is located within the City of Aurora, and students who live in this area therefore attend Aurora Public Schools. For more information, please visit the Aurora Public Schools website.

For the majority of Central Park residents, students and their families participate in the DPS School Choice Program, allowing them to apply to specific neighborhood schools which best fit their educational aspirations. For more information, please visit the DPS Choice & Enrollment website.

Students living within the DPS Central Park-Area Elementary School Enrollment Zone are guaranteed a spot at one of the following schools: Inspire Elementary; Isabella Bird Community School; Swigert International School; Westerly Creek; William (Bill) Roberts; and Willow Elementary.

Students living within the DPS Greater Park Hill/Central Park Middle School Enrollment Zone are guaranteed a spot at one of the following schools: Denver Discovery School; Denver Green School Northfield; DSST: Conservatory Green Middle School; DSST: Montview Middle School; McAuliffe International School; and William “Bill” Roberts School.
