We have had a great experience with Boulder Valley! Whenever as a family we have came across an issue the school my kids go to always give us the resources to help us or whatever. They care about my children. They have always been understanding to our different circumstances and worked with us to find a better way for our children needs.

Boulder Valley School District has some of the highest ranked schools in the state of Colorado. Know this, it should be known that Boulder Valley school district offers programs and resources that helps prepare kids for college and their personal success in school. Boulder Valley has changed my life, and I am so blessed that I had the opportunity to go to school in a district that cares so much for the well being of the students.
Every school I've attended in BVSD has had excellent classes and resources for students. BVSD also has an open enrollment policy that allows students to pick the school that would work best for them, including a couple charter schools. At all levels, there is a myriad of clubs and activities for all kinds of kids. The YMCA runs before and after school programs to help parents who work. The schools have accessible resources for kids with disabilities and good ESL programs. Some schools in BVSD have good resources for TAG kids. All the schools have great counselors and intervention specialists. Schools even have a police officer assigned to them. Unfortunately, there is a key reason I only gave the district a 4/5. The administration often doesn't listen to serious complaints about sexual harassment, sexism, and bullying. In BVSD there isn't anyone to go that will take these as seriously as they should be, especially when an adult is the perpetrator of abusive acts.
