    Founded in 1906, University Hill is one of Boulder's oldest elementary schools. At University Hill, we create a bilingual learning environment focused on the diverse needs of all children. Our students prepare to be responsible world citizens who are biliterate in Spanish and English, and who excel in academics and thrive in a global community. The vision of University Hill is to provide a caring environment where children are empowered to be critical thinkers, mindful community members, and culturally competent, bilingual individuals. We implement the BVSD curriculum based on the Colorado Academic standards through a dual language program that promotes bi-literacy, bilingualism and biculturalism. Our staff is highly diverse -- many have come to us from countries such as Mexico, Chile, Colombia and Peru. Our school community thrives in its diversity, inclusionary practices and social emotional skill development. This school offers free and tuition preschool classes that have a focus on academic and developmental learning standards. Website: University Hill Elementary
