Boulder High School is a high school in Boulder, Colorado. It is a part of the Boulder Valley School District.HistoryBoulder High School was founded in 1875 as part of the University of Colorado Boulder as a preparatory school for the university. It was the first high school in Colorado to graduate a class, hence its slogan, "Still the First." The school is located in downtown Boulder, adjacent to the university’s campus and four blocks from the Pearl Street Mall.ConstructionBoulder High School's building at 1604 Arapahoe Ave. was constructed in 1933 by the Works Project Administration. The facade is classic Streamline Moderne. The school's art deco auditorium has also been preserved. The building was constructed with "Colorado Red" flagstone and limestone, the same materials from which the University of Colorado is built. With funding from a Boulder Valley School District (BVSD) bond program, parts of the school were renovated or expanded in 2008. The changes include a remodeled ESL wing and counseling office, a new gymnasium, a larger administrative wing, and a bigger auditorium backstage. Most of the school's recent additions also have flagstone facades, but none retain the original art deco design.StadiumBoulder High football, soccer, lacrosse, and track teams compete at Christian Recht Field, accessed via a bridge spanning Boulder Creek. Recht Field received a multi-million-dollar upgrade in 2003, which included artificial turf installation to conserve water and reduce injuries incurred by frozen turf during the winter.
