We enjoy an excellent reputation as a school with high academic expectations and one that holds as a core value the importance of developing the whole child. The Boulder Valley School District curriculum serves as our guide and provides students with a solid foundation from which to build for the future. We believe in challenging all students to do their best while acknowledging the unique needs of every child. We meet the needs of students through extension activities as well as through special programming efforts designed and implemented by teachers. We believe in the importance of well-rounded students and plan accordingly to meet the developmental, social, emotional and physical needs in addition to the child’s cognitive needs.<br><br>With a rich multicultural population, we have families that speak more than 17 different languages at our school.<br>One of our strengths is the partnership we have with parents, the university, and community and business organizations. As a result, we are able to provide a learning experience that reaches beyond the bounds of the school.
