 {a1474b88-e943-4771-be13-3b8882c5fdd4}​​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 the BVSD curriculum based on the Colorado Academic standards through a dual-language program that promotes bi-literacy, bilingualism and biculturalism. Students learn academically challenging content while building literacy in two languages — Spanish and English. Half of our students come from dominant Spanish-speaking households and half come from dominant English-speaking households. Our staff is equally diverse and many have come to us from countries such as Mexico, Colombia 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.<br><br>Ina Rodriguez-Myer<div><div>Welcome!</div><div>University Hill offers a Dual Language Program for preschool through 5th grade.
