About This School
Since 1988, Boulder Country Day School has offered the highest possible standard in a classical education that focuses on the development of the whole child. A class size limited to16 students per homeroom in the elementary and 18 in the middle school and a core-academic curriculum enhanced with art, music, drama, physical education, foreign language and computer instruction provides each student with a well-rounded education.
In 1999, Boulder Country Day School relocated from its original location on a 1¼ acre site at 3800 Kalmia Avenue in Boulder to its current 5.5 acre campus in Twin Lakes Park located just northeast of downtown Boulder in Gunbarrel. The campus includes preschool, elementary, and middle school classroom buildings, and a full size gymnasium with a performance stage, music rooms and pottery lab. The centrally located administration building houses a library, science lab, art room and a fully networked computer lab. In October of 1999, the students and parents of Boulder Country Day built a 9,000 square foot playground structure, which was designed by the students of Boulder Country Day School with the help of a playground architect.
In December of 2009, we expanded our Middle School building with the addition of a second floor. The expansion includes six additional classrooms, a state-of-the-art science lab, science deck, 8th grade lounge, and many more improvements. Several of the first floor classrooms, director's office, activity room and teacher's workroom were enlarged as well. The building went from 6,251 square feet to a total building size of 14,450 square feet. In March of 2010, we dedicated and named the building "The Scott Alexander Middle School" in recognition of beloved former Middle School Director, Scott Alexander, who passed away in April, 2010.
In 2013, Boulder Country Day had 10 students for every full-time equivalent teacher. The Colorado average is 17 students per full-time equivalent teacher.
