About Our School:

​​Welcome to Creekside!


Creekside Elementary School at Martin Park is a neighborhood school that serves south Boulder and an international population. The Creekside community is comprised of students from over 45 countries which gives students the opportunity to experience various cultures on a daily basis. It is represented by a cross-section of socioeconomic and ethnic groups. The school uses personalized education programs to encourage high academic achievement and student growth. Creekside has both state and national accreditation, and offers a wide variety of programs for special-needs students, talented and gifted and English-language-learners.


As a neighborhood school, Creekside provides services that build community while providing opportunities for all students to achieve success. Special programs in our school include literacy support, English language development, special education services, a PBIS (Positive Behavior Support),  and talented and gifted (TAG). Services for students learning English follow the co-teaching approach in which English language resource teachers co-teach with the general education teacher in the regular classroom.


Creekside offers a rich tapestry of co-curricular programs during and after school, including but not limited to full day kindergarten, pre kindergarten classes, literacy support, student council, national geography and spelling bee competitions, talented and gifted support, a talent show, grade level music performances, individual and class pictures, and after school child care provided by the YMCA. In addition, Creekside is fortunate to have the support from the city of Boulder with the Family Resource Schools Program (FRS). This additional support provides after school enrichment, parenting support, counseling and community resource programs for students and their families. Some of the after school enrichment classes include yoga, chess, knitting, karate, and computer coding.


Our mission is to create meaningful, engaging, and challenging learning opportunities in a safe environment so all children thrive.


Our vision  is to inspire  students to be a community of curious, empathetic, self-confident  learners who engage positively with the world around them.


We believe:

*All children should be challenged to reach their intellectual and social-emotional potential. (educating the heart and the mind)

*It is essential to value diversity and build an inclusive community.

*It is our privilege to empower students to achieve their full potential.


Our cutting edge, energy efficient, school building provides students and teachers with flexible teaching and learning spaces. Creekside seeks to provide instructional experiences that foster the BVSD Innovation Guiding Principles:

1. Learning Is Founded in Inquiry

2. Learning Fosters a Culture of Curiosity and Risk Taking

3. Mastery of Learning Is Demonstrated in Multiple Ways

4. Learning Is a Social Process

5. Learning Is Powerful When Students Create Solutions to Authentic Challenges That Impact Their Local, National or Global Community

6. Learning Is Personalized and Learner Led

Principals Message:


Creekside is a unique, dynamic neighborhood school that hosts an international student population and has close ties with the University of Colorado. Our mission emphasizes strong, balanced academics and hosts the first Garden to the Table Program for the school district.

Creekside Elementary School is located in South Boulder. Students come here from the surrounding neighborhoods and many of the University of Colorado family housing units. Approximately 30 percent of our population comes to us from nearly every continent in the world and we have 25 different languages spoken in the building at this time. At Creekside, children learn that diversity is a quality which is respected and valued in our community.

Academic programming is provided to all children on a differentiated basis, as determined by their performance level. Special programming is available for talented and gifted children as well as children who are struggling and below grade level expectations. Our balanced literacy program is supported by a 26,000 volume leveled book room. Intensive small group reading instruction is provided each day for children who are not reaching proficiency. Children who are reading above grade level are challenged to expand their comprehension and vocabulary. Children with Individualized Education Plans are provided with special services within the classroom and in a resource setting.

Creekside is a creative, diverse, and motivating setting for all children.​
