Bear Creek Elementary School is situated on a hilltop at the base of the Flatirons, Boulder's dramatic rock formation, and we enjoy a panoramic view of the city of Boulder and the Colorado plains. The impressive mountain backdrop is a daily inspiration reminding us that our thirty-year tradition of maintaining a strong school community is the bedrock upon which we strive to reach high academic goals. By enveloping children in a safe, nurturing environment and teaming with parents and the community to ensure learning for all students, we can inspire students to conquer their mountains and realize their dreams.
In 2006 Bear Creek was recognized as a "National Blue Ribbon School." The Blue Ribbon Schools Program honors both public and private K-12 schools that are determined by the U.S. Department of Education to be either academically superior or to have shown dramatic gains in student achievement. The Blue Ribbon designation is awarded to approximately five schools in Colorado each year, Bear Creek representatives were invited to Washington, D.C. for a nationial ceremony to meet with other Blue Ribbon schools and to share ideas that have led to school success.
