The Colorado high-quality Schools Map seeks to answer a simple question: Who has access to the top public schools in Colorado? Importantly, this map gauges practical access to the top schools by accounting for things like driving time and the number of seats actually available in the school relative to the local population. Based on this data, every Colorado zip code was assigned a score on a scale of 1-5, with “5” representing excellent access to the top quality schools and “1” representing poor access to the top quality schools. This map was designed with the lived experiences of families in mind.
