A great Denver suburb, Thornton is Colorado's 6th largest city by population and is home to great outdoor spaces, plenty of suburban amenities, and relatively affordable home prices. Stick around to check this one out!
Thornton is located about 20-25 minutes north of downtown Denver and about 30 minutes from the Denver International Airport.

It's a large suburb and don't need to leave to get what you need. Being so large and relatively affordable, it's kind of in that sweet spot for a lot of folks.
In terms of schools, it very much depends on where you're located within the city. Thornton is served by 4 districts - Adams 12 Five Star, School District 27J, Mapleton, and Adams County - with ratings of B+, C+, C, and D- respectively*. Luckily most of the city is served by the Adams 12 Five Star district.

The Adams 12 Five Star serves the central, southwest, west, and northwest portions of the city.
