Boulder High School



 About Our School

Founded in 1875 as part of the University of Colorado, Boulder High is the oldest established high school in Colorado. In 2017, Boulder High was named by U.S. News and World Report as one of the best high schools in the United States. Students regularly access University of Colorado classes and libraries, the Conference on World Affairs, and cultural community activities from our urban setting. We are fortunate to host the Boulder International Film Festival. Boulder High is an Advanced Placement focus school, with one of the most comprehensive programs in the state, offering 30 Advanced Placement courses. Boulder High School's AVID program creates an environment where all students are afforded the opportunity to succeed. Our visual and performing arts departments have an excellent reputation and continue to produce cutting edge performances and work. The pottery, photography and video production studios and Millennium lab are state of the art. Boulder High has one of the district's largest English Language Development programs, serving students from 30 countries. It also offers five world languages: Spanish, French, German, Japanese and Latin.
