Founded in 1906, University Hill is one of Boulder's oldest elementary schools offering one of the most unique educational settings in the district. We implement BVSD curriculum based on the Colorado Academic standards through a dual-language program that promotes biliteracy, bilingualism, and biculturalism. Students learn academically challenging content while building literacy in two languages - Spanish and English. We aim to have 50% of our students whose home language is English and 50% whose home language is Spanish. Our staff is equally diverse and many have come to us from countries such as Mexico, Colombia, Chile, Spain, and Peru. Our proximity to the University of Colorado provides us with a wealth of resources and opportunities to extend student learning beyond the classroom walls. Equity, diversity, respect and understanding are the cornerstones of our school community. This school also offers free and tuition preschool classes that have a focus on both academic and developmental learning standards.

Gold Hill

Not many kids can say they go to school in a Victorian-era school house, but Gold Hill Elementary School students can. This year marks 150 years of this unique learning environment for K-5 students. Since 1873, Gold Hill Elementary School has remained in operation, making it the oldest continually-operating school in Colorado.
