Just south of Denver, Greenwood Village is an appealing locale for parents looking to settle in the mountain West. The community is educated and its economy robust — Greenwood Village is headquarters for major companies including eBags, the Red Robin restaurant chain, and Western Union. It's the site of Fiddler's Green Amphitheatre (recently rechristened Comfort Dental Amphitheatre), the area's largest outdoor amphitheater, and nearby Westlands Park, which features soccer fields and playgrounds. And downtown Denver is less than 15 miles away.
Greenwood Village's six elementary schools, three middle schools, and two high schools (in the Cherry Creek and Littleton School Districts) pride themselves on their superlative achievements. Thirteen Cherry Creek schools and five Littleton schools received the Colorado Department of Education’s “John Irwin Award,” which recognizes the top eight percent of schools that demonstrate the highest achievement on statewide assessments. Meanwhile, schools in the Littleton district, nationally recognized for its Inspired Writing program, typically score 15 percentage points higher than the state average on standardized tests. Littleton High School's class of 2009 was awarded nearly $30 million in college scholarships, and in 2011 eight district seniors were named National Merit Finalists.
