Broomfield High School is a public high school in Broomfield, Colorado, part of the Boulder Valley School District.

History[edit]

In 1961, a junior and senior high school opened at 14th and Daphne to serve students within the newly incorporated city of Broomfield. High school classes at the school had begun in the fall of 1964. While remodeled several times in the intervening years, the original buildings are part of the present Broomfield High School.[1] From June 2008[4] to August 2009,[5] the school underwent an extensive $27 million renovation, wherein most of the original junior high school portion of the school was replaced with a modern two-story structure.
