Boulder Valley School District Reviews

Boulder Valley School District works for its community and provides a variety of opportunities for students. I appreciate how privileged I am to receive the benefits of so many peoples' hard work, but like any institution decisions are political and not always made for the students. The school does great things for us, but when hard decisions need to be made parents and politics become the priority, not the students. In high school becoming aware of how policies affect me directly and how lack of input contributes to unfairness, I feel the need to speak up and be listened to when it comes to my education. It is complicated and my input may not be the same as anyone else's, but some level of power to the students could benefit everyone. Overall, Boulder Valley School District does what we need providing education and a safe environment for students.

BVSD is a very welcoming community. The schools excel in academics and college readiness. There are many sports and clubs to pick from. Safety is also ensured for the students at all campuses are well secured. BVSD takes all school threats and safety concerns very seriously. There is also plenty of parent involvement in many activities for students of all ages.
The only problem I have found is the wifi system. BVSD has a tendency to over censor things. While this is not a concern for middle or elementary schools, at a high school level, it does not prepare the students for the real world.
I’ve been going to Boulder Vally School District (BVSD) since I was in preschool. In BVSD, there could be more diversity between students and more school spirit in them. Not much students at my high school now aren’t involved in different clubs or activities. Also, the schools could have more understanding and nice teachers.
