Welcome to Boise-Eliot/Humboldt

Welcome to Boise-Eliot/Humboldt. We invite parents, students, and community members to ask questions and give feedback for a stronger school. We have a diversity of opportunities and programs happening at BEH, from Playworks, SEI, to STEM, and more. If you are looking for something on the website, please let us know.

On the first Friday of each month, join us in the gym at 8 am for Family Morning. There are free muffins and juice (coffee for the adults!), board games, art making, and sometimes, a rousing game of bingo. Students can  even choose a new book to bring home. Note: Students must be accompanied by an adult.

Get to know BEH by watching our introductory video and visiting our photo albums.
