Sounds like you are asking about two things... the job market (in and around FC) for your profession, and where is a good place to live in this area (for a good school), is that right?
Don't know about the PT job market here, but I'd say anywhere you live in FC has really good schools. Moreover, if you living within the Poudre School District, then you can take advantage of the "school of choice" concept. Basically, if the school you want has room then you can choose to send your kids to it... as long as you get them there (no busing except to your neighborhood school). But really, unless there is something specific you want about a particular school, then all of the schools are good. Even the elementary schools that don't have very good test scores have good teachers and administrators, it's just that the socio-economic status of many of the parents there are not so good. It doesn't mean the school's bad, or that the kids there are bad.
Plus, there are multiple charter schools to choose from.
