Believe in Our Legacy

  • We believe a Widefield graduate should be life long learner with the skills necessary to succeed after high school. We’ve heard it takes a village to raise a child, and our Widefield village has succeeded in bringing up generations of children who have left a legacy in our community and beyond.

Believe in Our Community

  • Widefield School District 3 is more than an education, it's a lifestyle.

    Our community supporters provide rich resources that encompass who we are and our mission to make a positive impact each and every day. 

    The district has a strong and proud military tradition that supports our military personnel, veterans, and their families. We work directly with Fort Carson to provide support services to ensure a smooth transition.

    WSD3 is also the only school district in Colorado to own and operate a parks and recreation department that offers fitness classes, sports, swimming, and preschool.

    We are proud partners with the Security Public Library and the Fountain Valley Senior Center whom we do several activities and programs with throughout the year. 

    Each year the district puts on a "Community Day" to highlight our schools and showcase how we make a positive impact. The day begins with a district parade followed by a cookout and football game between Mesa Ridge and Widefield high schools.
