School Profile
Eldorado K-8 is one of three public K-8 schools in Boulder Valley School District. With over 900 students in grades Kindergarten through 8th grade, visitors have dubbed us, "The large school with the small school feel." Our learning community is committed to creating strong relationships between students, their families and staff across our school while providing exceptional learning experiences and high academic standards for all students through the Boulder Valley curriculum.

Our commitment to working with our families as partners is strengthened in that we work with some of them for as long as nine years! Along with our traditional programming, we offer English as a Second Language (ESL), TAG (Talented and Gifted) services and an inclusive Special Education setting for our neighborhood students.
Accelerated classes are available for qualified 6-8 grade students in math, language arts and 6th grade reading. Foreign language offerings in Spanish, French and German are available for middle level students. Students in highly advanced classes in math and foreign language may attend classes at Eldorado or Monarch High School. In addition to presenting a strong academic program for our students, we also realize the importance of providing opportunities that address the many different learning styles that our students possess. Our physical education, music and art programs are of the highest quality and are viewed as excellent experiences for Eldorado students. Additionally, we offer a wide variety of electives at grades 6-8 and many exciting before- and after-school activities, intramurals and organizations at all grade levels to meet the diverse needs of our population. There’s something for everyone, Kindergarten through 8th grade, at Eldorado!
