WElcome to University Hill!

Dear Students, Staff and Families,
 
On behalf of the teachers and staff at our school​, it is my pleasure to welcome you to University Hill Elementary.  Thank you so much for visiting our website. Our intent is to provide more comprehensive information for parents, families, and visitors about University Hill; our school goals; our community events; and how you can be involved to partner with us to help your child be a successful learner. 
 
University Hill is a 100% open enrolled school offering an outstanding dual language program to students in kindergarten through fifth grade. Additionally, University Hill offers a Spanish immersion Preschool Program. University Hill Elementary mission states that, "...we create a bilingual learning environment focused on the diverse needs of all children, in which students prepare to be responsible world citizens who are biliterate in Spanish and English, and who excel in academics and thrive in a global community."  We are committed to creating an environment where all students feel confident, respected and safe. Programs like Positive Behavior Intervention Support and Second Step help to develop character traits and develop the social emotional skills of students.  We have an outstanding Family Resource Program that provided social and financial support to students and families. We offer a large variety of enrichment activities both during the day and after school. We partner with our community to bring unique programs into our school. We work with the University of Colorado, Thorne Nature Science, and Blue Sky Bridge to name a few.  Our PTA provides fun family and culturally-oriented events, while raising money to support school-wide activities and field trips for students. University Hill is a wonderful learning community thanks to its committed staff, highly-involved parents and hardworking students. Together we create the best school community to offer.
