BVSD has invested in fostering linguistic diversity through robust dual-language programs that empower students to master multiple languages in their existing learning environments. One example of the program's success is the Aguirre Garcia family of Lafayette, Colorado whose native language is Spanish.
Lifted by the best teachers and support staff in Colorado, our goal is to help every student succeed in their academic, career and personal lives.
BVSD believes in providing students with a strong foundation of safe, inclusive learning environments, support strong assessment practices, and create clear processes for instruction and layered interventions that meet students where they are and move them forward.
Through this layered approach, known as the Multi-Tiered System of Supports, our goal is to personalize learning and emotional supports for all students.
One of our goals in the Boulder Valley School District is to ensure that students and staff members feel a sense of belonging, so our schools are focused on creating inclusive and positive cultures, where everyone is welcome and supported
The Boulder Valley School District has long valued bilingualism, understanding the benefits that it provides to both our students and the community at large.
With more than 4,000 bilingual students in the district, BVSD is one of few school districts in Colorado to operate dual-language schools. They include Boulder's Columbine Elementary, Lafayette’s Escuela Bilingüe Pioneer, and Boulder’s University Hill Elementary. BVSD also offers three dual language middle school strands: Angevine Middle School, Casey Middle School, and Manhattan Middle School of Arts and Academics.
You cannot go wrong when choosing a school in the Boulder Valley School District. Every one of our schools is outstanding and will prepare your student well for their future.
We, however, know that different students have different needs. While some may be looking for a school with tons of activities, others may be looking for a quieter option, with fewer students and more one-on-one attention.
Our team takes pride in ensuring that every student has the opportunity to succeed. They can count on their counselor -- from the elementary level up, to help to guide and support them every step of the way.
Thanks to Colorado voters, school meals will be free for all BVSD students beginning in the 2023-24 school year. Even though lunch is now free, it is still very important that families complete the free and reduced meal application, as it waives and reduces fees district-wide for families, can impact transportation for some families, and impacts important funding for individual schools.
As students return to class in the coming weeks, those who participated in Boulder Valley School District’s improved summer learning program are primed for learning.
