The mission of Emerald Elementary School, in the Boulder Valley School District, is to create challenging, meaningful and engaging learning opportunities so that all children thrive and are prepared for successful, civically engaged lives. 


In our Emerald community, all children are supported to reach their greatest potential.  We are an innovative, progressive and high-achieving neighborhood school that equitably educates students in a safe, supportive environment.  We foster successful, curious, lifelong learners who confidently embrace the challenges and opportunities of their time.


EMERALD ELEMENTARY is a PK-5 school within the Boulder Valley School District. Located in BROOMFIELD, Colorado, this tuition-free, co-educational public school serves a diverse community of students; we also offer free and tuition preschool classes that focus on both academic and developmental learning standards. 

How Is Our School Unique?

Emerald is a neighborhood school with a balance of diversity that mirrors the real world. We believe building positive relationships and eliminating fears for every student are critical for maximum learning to take place. Contributing to our continued success are social development, strong balanced literacy and math programs, and an incredibly dedicated staff with high but realistic expectations. We provide support for our parents through Love and Logic parenting classes, at no charge and with child care provided. This school also offers free and tuition preschool classes that have a focus on both academic and developmental learning standards.

Emerald Elementary was built in 1958 as the first elementary school in Broomfield. Emerald has gone through many improvements including enlarging the school. The school has Preschool-5th grade students.  We are proud to be one of the first schools to offer a full day kindergarten.  Emerald Elementary is part of the Boulder Valley School District.  During the 2009-2010 school year a new gym was added to the school, and the cafeteria and the office area was remodeled.
