WELCOME UNIVERSITY HILL EAGLES

 

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.

teachers co-teaching in a classroom

In the Boulder Valley School District, a different approach to teaching is underway in many classrooms that is reshaping how students learn and teachers teach. These classes are using co-teaching models, a collaboration that nurtures a culture of inclusivity and growth in the classroom. The co-teaching instructional model emphasizes three fundamental pillars: student inclusion, exposure to grade-level content standards for emerging bilinguals, and developing and strengthening skills, abilities, processes and resources among teachers.

Their work entails a split schedule, with routes operating before and after school hours. But what exactly do they do during the hours in between? Here's a glimpse into their day.
