Education is very important! It is the key to harness knowledge, and the tool to achieve the necessary skills we need to be successful in life. With over-population and the lack of jobs openings, employers have the lap of luxury to choose the very best candidate for their company, so the burden shifts to us parents on how we can raise our children to have the best chances of shaping a great future.
In life, ideally, we want the best quality of things with the least money to shell out, however, we tend to always have to sacrifice one or the other, if we want something. We have to pay thousands of dollars to get that big TV, or to get the latest iPhone. If we purchase those more affordable items, there is a chance that that item will break at any moment.
That is not always the case when it comes to education. There are in fact many high schools that provide quality education and not having parents shell out a lot of money for private schooling. Here in Colorado, amazingly, 270 high schools were named as a top school when comparing it to other schools across the country.
The U.S. News & World Report provided its rankings from over 23,000 public school around the United States and based their findings on a number of factors, some of which were assessed based on their state assessment scores and how well they prepare the children for college and universities.
Below are the top ten schools in Colorado that made it in the list of best schools:
* D’Evelyn Junior/Senior High School, Denver
* Denver School of the Arts, Denver
* The Vanguard School, Colorado Springs
* Peak to Peak Charter School, Lafayette
* Crested Butte Community School, Crested Butte
