SCHOOLS


Art Schools

Damien Woetzel, the seventh president of the Juliard School, once said, “We say arts education is good for general education, but that’s not the point. The arts are what great nations are remembered for. They are a mirror. The value of an arts education is widely accepted. Arts camps are the way, the best way, to cultivate an interest and appreciation for arts and identify talent.” Check these schools out for the path to Juliard, any art school of your dreams, and a lifelong love of the arts.

Charter Schools

Charter Schools fulfill a niche in education that is both valuable and distinct. There are important reasons charter schools exist. Martin Luther King III said, “Some people need a targeted kind of learning. They need a different approach, like charter schools. There are virtual classrooms that some will do well in. The reality is, if there are no options, if there is just one particular standard, then someone is going to fall through the cracks, as we’ve seen.” These schools are ready to catch the kids falling, hold up the ones that are served best in these institutions, and provide an excellent space for the rest.

Colleges

Colleges have long been seen as the path to upward mobility, technical and professional success, and social prestige. We include, of course, industrial and technical schools, as we encourage our young people to find the educational path that best serves their interests, passions, and skills. Our area is filled with amazing institutions of higher education. We remember one of the greatest thinkers in history, Albert Einstein, who said that, “The value of a college education is not the learning of many facts but the training of the mind to think.” Let these schools train your young persons mind for the future.

Daycare/Preschool

It’s been half-jokingly said that we spend the first couple of years of a baby’s life trying to get them to stand up and walk. The other side of that is the decades we get trying to get them to slow down and just be kids. You can’t give your kids a better head start in life than a great daycare or preschool (our editor knows; he used to be an early childhood education paraprofessional). Andy Hargreaves said that, “A first class system of early childhood education is the hallmark of a caring and civilized society.” We consider ourselves civilized, so we have a universe of amazing, diverse, specific daycares and preschools to give your young walker/early runner the best foot forward.

Districts

Boulder County is privileged. Let’s just accept it. We are incredibly blessed to have some of the best schools, school districts and – most importantly – educators in our state. There are tons of schools in your local district to choose from and, pro tip, you get to choose where to send your young ones. There’s no “this is your school, no other choice, that’s the way it is” education. You get to work with your young human to identify goals, passions, and projects that you hope to achieve and then pick the school best suited to help you achieve the dreams. Dig in, look around, ask questions.

Driving

After walking, then running, can you believe these young people want to drive? It’s a driver’s state (given our perennial lack of efficient local public transit), which means putting them behind a wheel, turning over the ignition, and watching them drive off into the sunset…or maybe just over to a local high school for an evening football game versus the local rivals. We firmly believe in driver training in advance of taking that test and getting the coveted license to drive (hard to tell, but that was an 80’s movie name, featuring Cory Haim and Heather Graham, but I digress). America has the worst (lowest level) driving training and license requirements. Avoid the nerves and fears by setting them up for vehicular success with these local driving schools.

Homeschool

Education begins in the home. Given the education levels of Boulder County residents, we believe we live in one of the best places to homeschool. David O. McKay once said that, “The home is the first and most effective place to learn the lessons of life: truth, honor, virtue, self control, the value of education, honest work, and the purpose and privilege of life. Nothing can take the place of home in rearing and teaching children, and no other success can compensate for failure in the home.” He’s right. You have all the tools at your disposal. All of human knowledge is on the internet. And these schools are ready and willing to help you succeed in educating your young people at home.

Montessori

Maria Montessori once said, astutely, that “the goal of early childhood education should be to activate the child’s own natural desire to learn.” We have Montessori in Boulder County. In fact, we have a lot to choose from. What is your young one’s special interest, favorite pastime, immediate passion? We have a school that can attend to that, nurture it, and set your young one on to a path of learning love, wide-eyed and in love with the prospect of the next day’s lesson.

Private

Private schools tend to have some of the best funded classrooms, the best teacher to student ratios, high level educations, and a touch of pampering if that’s what you want. People think it’s only rich people, but regular folks make a way so their kids have a way through life. Marcus Mariota  said, “Growing up, my parents made a lot of sacrifices for my brother and I to go to private school and to attend some of the football camps. They got through some hard times, but it was for me, and that’s what I’ve learned from them. I’m very grateful for that.”

Waldorf

Rudoph Steiner said, “The heart of the Waldorf method is that education is an art-it must speak to the child’s experience. To educate the whole child, his heart and his will must be reached, as well as the mind.” We couldn’t agree more, and these Waldorf institutions are ready for you to get to the art of education.

Not all education is indoors, and these outdoor schools are ready to hike your kids to the precipice of genius, push their hands into the soils of learning, and send them home with the occasional stain or knee scrape. We love the idea of learning in an outdoor setting, the way Aristotle would’ve taught.

Tutoring

Dance/Gymnastics

Kinesthetic learning is real. Truthfully, kids learn better when they can move and learn. Dance and gymnastics is an amazing outlet for improving the mind and perfecting the body. We wish our parents sent us to a tumbling class when we were young but alas, here we are. Check these schools out for that extra oomph as we tune our bodies along with our minds.

Music

Music matters. “Music education opens doors that help children pass from school into the world around them – a world of work, culture, intellectual activity, and human involvement. The future of our nation depends on providing our children with a complete education that includes music.” So said Gerald Ford, who we’re pretty sure was a president. These schools will get your kids tuned in to the tunes.

Art

We agree with Emma Walton Hamilton that an “arts education… absolutely for a fact, that there is no better way for kids to learn critical thinking skills, communication skills, things like empathy and tolerance. This is true across every boundary, across cultural boundaries, across socioeconomic, it’s a great leveler in terms of unifying our world.”

Rock Climbing

Rock climbing is a lot like dance training – poise, position, leverage, strength, pose, lift – but your dance floor is vertical. Get on a wall, strengthen your grip – your whole body – while cultivating spatial awareness, critical thinking, and, yes, math skills. The walls are calling in Colorado.

Sciences

Science (the first letter in all the STEM and STEAM school acronyms) Schools are ready to nerd out with you, introduce you to the vastness of the universe or the infinitesimal of the molecule. Get ready to have your mind blown, and maybe blow up a few things.

Museum

Without museums our lives would be boring. Imagine only knowing of history, and art, and the human body, and scientific achievement… through a book. We love books, but we can all agree that experiencing these things first hand, reveling in the textures and details of an artwork, interacting with recreated experiments of Da Vinci, looking through cross-sections of a heart… We live for museums, and we’re lucky to have so many close to us doing amazing work.
