Meridian Ranch is a 2,500-acre master-planned community surrounded by a new world-class golf course. Strong community themes and standards, a planned recreation and family fitness center, a growing number of convenience shopping facilities and larger lots with great home prices add to the allure of the area.
The area features full Front Range views and is set on the rolling grasslands that characterize eastern Colorado, with plenty of native cottonwood and aspen trees. Miles of open space surround the neighborhood to enjoy that famous Colorado outdoors.
Meridian Ranch's student population attend the schools of the Falcon School District, where Falcon High School is considered one of the best in the area and students post some of the highest SAT and ACT scores in the region, well above the national average. As one of the smaller districts in the region, Falcon has a low student-teacher ratio.
