Bixby School serves preschool through elementary level children and their families by integrating academic, artistic, physical, and social development in a small community setting. Our mission is to cultivate critical thinking; promote independence and self-confidence; instill empathy, respect, and responsibility; and inspire a love of learning.
Bixby School was founded in 1970 as a preschool by the school's founders Pat and Bart. The school quickly grew to become a preschool and K-5 program and has been in its current location of three acres in the South Boulder since 1978. Bixby School is unique in its strong commitment to progressive education and how to individualize instruction to meet all students' needs, foster their strengths and nurture their intrinsic motivation, curiosity and commitment to learning. The school has been on the forefront of innovative practice through rich academics and supporting growth of the whole child.
