One of the biggest considerations parents or future parents have when considering where to buy is about the local schools. In Denver, Colorado, K-12 public schools in Colorado are primarily funded through a combination of local property taxes and state revenues. Historically, local property taxes have made up the majority of funding. In Denver, local property taxes account for nearly 57% of the system’s total revenue.
Parents can’t help but consider the annual taxes dedicated to reading-writing-‘rithmetic vs. the cost of a private school education where Denver’s Graland Middle School (Grades 5-8) runs $26,000/year (that’s $33,800 before taxes on average.)
When choosing to occupy a specific zip code, parents of the next generation want some reassurance that the education they can provide their children simply by virtue of their address has consequence.
