Welcome to Foothill Elementary

Foothill Elementary is a successful neighborhood school with high achieving students, an involved parent community, and a committed faculty and staff. Located in northwest Boulder, Foothill has been educating children for more than half a century. Lifelong learning, academic achievement and world citizenship are integrated within the BVSD curriculum. Foothill is now able to meet the needs all students who live in our attendance area and embrace the growing cultural and linguistic diversity of our community.

Our students are supported by an array of services including Special Education, Literacy, Talented and Gifted, and an English Language Development (ELD) program as well as a great number of parent volunteers and a Community Liaison. Our experienced staff includes six that are National Board Certified. Additionally, there are many extra-curricular and co-curricular options available to students including PE Field Fun Days, Chess Club, Trip Tracker (a car-free rewards program supporting our Green Star school), Student Government, Running Club, Student-Run Conflict Mediation and the Foothill Publishing Center.

Our school has been named a John Irwin School of Excellence for student achievement, a Green Star Environmental School for our waste-free recycling program and uses solar panels to generate a portion of our electricity. We are fortunate to be part of the Healthier US School Challenge program, offering a fresh salad bar every day to our students.

Foothill is proud of the partnership it has nurtured between the families it serves, the students who attend and the educators who work here. From school-wide picnics and gardening to parent/teacher committees such as SAC and PTO (Parent Teacher Organization)​, Foothill is a collaborative and vibrant learning environment.
