Barefoot Lakes is located in the highly rated St. Vrain Valley School District, which offers educational opportunities for kids in pre-K through high school that prepare them for a constantly evolving world. While Barefoot Lakes feeds into three of those schools, the district also gives families a choice in selecting a school that best fits the needs and interests of their children — whether that’s aerospace or the arts. Of course, because learning is a lifelong process, there are two colleges right up the road for our older students.
Kids who live at Barefoot Lakes feed into three public schools in Mead’s charming, small-town setting. But if you want to go a different route, you have a choice of charter options, too.
Grades K-5 (Plus a Pre-School Option)
Mead Elementary focuses on a child’s unlimited potential, through high expectations, rigorous academics and development of character.
Mead Middle School is an award-winning, academically rigorous school with an EXCEL focus.
