LONE TREE offers blue skies, beautiful surroundings, excellent recreational opportunities and a flourishing community. However, Lone Tree is much more. Lone Tree is the smaller incorporated neighbor city of Highlands Ranch. The city’s motto, “It’s a great day to be in Lone Tree,” encompasses the overall sense of pride community members share with the city and with one another. Residents and visitors of all ages enjoy a diverse range of activities and facilities including the Lone Tree Summer Concert Series, the Lone Tree Library, an extensive trail network,the Lone Tree Arts Center and first-rate shopping.
The schools serving Lone Tree, and the majority of the front range communities that are part of Denver are a diverse mix of public systems, charter schools, and private/parochial schools. Charter schools are considered public and will be included in the district listings. Please see the more school connections link for private, charter and home schooling options.
NOTE: While many school districts serve portions of Highlands Ranch, no single one covers the entire community. The property address will determine the school district. Sometimes they will overlap…but not always.
