About Our School
Broomfield High School is truly a community high school. The support given to the school by parents and community members is exceptional. Broomfield High School students' academic successes are not only the school's priority, but also the priority of many adults in the community. As a comprehensive high school, Broomfield offers a balanced program of study to meet the various academic needs and interests of its students. Broomfield High School's course offerings include honors and Advanced Placement courses in many disciplines, fine arts courses and vocationally- focused courses. A unique atmosphere of cooperation has been established in the Broomfield High School community. Together, the school and community discuss and solve issues that can improve the high school experience for all students. Broomfield High School's goal is to maintain that growing relationship and continue the tradition of excellence in all areas of the school's life.
The challenge for schools today is to meet the needs of students for tomorrow - to ready our youth for living and working beyond high school in a world that will be different from both the present and past. We believe the high school experience is a vital, transitional stage in students' lives as they move from adolescence into adulthood.
