Boulder Valley School District Reviews
I love how there is such a wide variety of classes available to other students and me. Many teachers reach out and make connections with their students, which can be hard sometimes considering the amount of students they have. BVSD highly values education, but it's also considerate in many circumstances. The environment is perfect for learning, and the views can't be beat!
I liked my school district. The way they went about things regarding academic courses was good, I feel like with my school in particular, Peak to Peak Charter School, they went a bit above and beyond in educating us just a little bit more than standard curriculum. Definitely prepared me for college, my school had courses tailored specifically to the college preparation side. The teachers were (most of the time) fantastic. I had plenty of memorable teachers who were very experienced in their field, and some teachers, such as the physics teacher were actively contributing to their field. There were a couple of teachers that were not so great though. They wouldn’t accommodate to those of us (such as myself) with learning disabilities, often skimming over content that was critical knowledge for the tests. Their teaching methods were inneffective and they were hesitant to listen to any feedback. Those teachers were few and far between though. Diversity was also accomidated in my district.
I attended the Boulder Valley School District from elementary school to high school. In this district, the best part of it was definitely the school involvement in sports and academics. We were constantly encouraged to join extracurricular activities by our teachers, counselors, and more. Parents were also constantly involved in their student's lives and often volunteered at the schools to help with events and fundraisers such as concessions and sports games. Most students achieved academic success in one way or another and also participated in after school sports or clubs in our community. One thing I did wish was better in this district is the student and teacher attitudes. Students and teachers sometimes were not as kind or considerate of each other as they should be. Above all, this school district was a great life experience.
