About Our School:
​​Founded in 1906, University Hill is one of Boulder’s oldest elementary schools, offering one of the most unique educational settings in the district. We implement the BVSD curriculum based on the Colorado Academic standards through a dual-language program that promotes bi-literacy, bilingualism and biculturalism. Students learn academically challenging content while building literacy in two languages — Spanish and English. Half of our students come from dominant Spanish-speaking households and half come from dominant English-speaking households. Our staff is equally diverse and many have come to us from countries such as Mexico, Colombia and Peru. Our proximity to the University of Colorado provides us with a wealth of resources and opportunities to extend student learning beyond the classroom walls. Equity, diversity, respect and understanding are the cornerstones of our school community. This school also offers free and tuition preschool classes that have a focus on both academic and developmental learning standards.



Program Characteristics:
Welcome!
University Hill offers a Dual Language Program for preschool through 5th grade. We teach students to speak, read and write in both English and Spanish. 
Bilingual children reap many advantages throughout their lives including being better able to navigate our multicultural world. We are proud to have one of the most diverse student and staff populations in Boulder Valley. Social justice, respect and understanding are cornerstones of our school community. All of our families apply through the school district’s open enrollment process.
Since opening our doors in January of 1906, our location across from the University of Colorado has provided us access to many wonderful educational resources. Our campus consists of two handicapped-accessible buildings separated by a playground.

Bienvenidos!​
University Hill ofrece un Programa de Lenguaje Dual desde el  preescolar hasta el 5to grado. Enseñamos a los estudiantes a hablar, leer y escribir en inglés y español.
Los niños bilingües obtienen muchas ventajas durante toda su vida, incluyendo el ser más capaces de desenvolverse en nuestro mundo multicultural. Estamos orgullosos de tener una de las poblaciones más diversas de estudiantes y personal en el Valle de Boulder. La justicia social, el respeto y la comprensión son las piedras angulares de nuestra comunidad escolar. Todas nuestras familias aplican a través del proceso de  inscripción abierta del distrito escolar.
Desde que abrimos nuestras puertas en enero de 1906, nuestra ubicación frente a la Universidad de Colorado, nos ha proporcionado el acceso a muchos recursos educativos maravillosos. Nuestra escuela se compone de dos edificios, con acceso para discapacitados, separados por un campo de juegos.



High levels of proficiency in literacy, numeracy, and all academic content areas are expected of all students. The school is located in central Boulder on a large campus with two buildings, two playgrounds, and a large playing field. Our campus includes a dual immersion Colorado Preschool Program; we also house a Family Literacy Program. The campus on University Hill is easy to get to using public transportation, automobile, walking paths and bicycle paths. We are close to the University of Colorado, Chautauqua, the planetarium, museums, parks, public library, downtown Boulder, and multiple recreational and arts opportunities.
