About Our School
Boulder Ridge Elementary is located in a small suburban community 22 miles south of Riverside, and 60 miles north of San Diego, just east of Interstate 215 and is home of the Bulldogs!!! During the 2019- 20 school year Boulder Ridge Elementary school served 673 students in grades Transitional Kindergarten through fifth. At Boulder Ridge, we live by the motto that, “Kindness happens here”!
Boulder Ridge takes pride in educating the whole child. The 2021/22 school year marks Boulder Ridge’s 4th year as a Leader in Me School! The Leader in Me, and the 7 habits help to drive the instructional model at Boulder Ridge. Students engage in collaborative dialogue around the 7 habits and how these habits help shape them as current students and future leaders.
Students play an integral part in running the school, as members of the student lighthouse team they run our morning announcements, monthly assemblies, as well as numerous other events throughout the year! We work to encourage them to think outside the box, and to have fun while leading.
While a focus on social emotional learning is keyat Boulder, we also highly value the academic core such as language arts, math, science and social science. Our teachers are highly trained and enthusiastic about their subject matter.
At Boulder, we also ensure that our students have access to arts and physical education. Our music program is world class and our student concerts are absolutely rocking!
At Boulder Ridge, we also understand that as times change, the role that instructional technology plays in learning changes, which is why our entire school utilizes 1:1 computers or one computer for every student. We know that technology helps to create a more engaging, and creative learning environment! However, we also know that no amount of technology can ever replace a kind, caring, supportive teacher!
Our teachers at Boulder are just that; kind, caring, and supportive. Our school offers both a Tier 2 and Tier 3 academic intervention and enrichment during the school day to ensure that every student at Boulder gets what they need in order to learn at a high level. Our teachers pride themselves on the relationships they build with their students and know that higher level learning cannot take place without relationships with both students and their families. At Boulder Ridge, we are truly all a family and work collaboratively to ensure ALL of our students are loved, supported, safe, and succeed at high levels both academically and social emotionally.
We are grateful to have a full-time counselor on our staff who works with 100% of our students and who follows the ASCA National Model for school counseling. Our comprehensive school counseling program, driven by student data and based on standards in academic, career and personal/social development help to promote and enhance the learning process for all students.
Boulder Ridge is a school where the student needs come first, and fun is part of the program! You will often find Mr. Mitchem, the school principal on the blacktop or field playing a game of football or basketball with his students, you will likely find Mrs. Hilz, the Assistant principal at the Kindergarten gate each morning high fiving our kids as they enter the school! They simply love their students!
At Boulder Ridge, we take the time, the energy, and the effort to build solid, trusting relationships with ALL of our students, and their families!
We are grateful that you have chosen to trust us with your student!
Welcome to the family!
