Student Council

The Boulder High School Student Council is a student-elected group of forty-two freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior representatives. Student Council serves as the voice of the student body and liaison between students and the administration of Boulder High. At the school level, representatives are responsible for all school rallies, Homecoming and Winter dances, Spring Fling, Senior TORCH assembly, movie nights, and many more events that help to unite and unify our school community.

At state and national levels, representatives have engaged in numerous community service drives and activities raising supplies and thousands of dollars for organizations such as the Emergency Family Assistance Association of Boulder, There With Care of Boulder, Make-A-Wish America, and many more. 

Student Council also provides representatives with opportunities to expand their leadership skills through state and national leadership conferences. Students have had the opportunity to attend conferences across the state of Colorado (Ft. Collins, Colorado Springs, Durango, Grand Junction) and the nation (Las Vegas, Orlando, Washington, D.C.).
