Hidden Springs Elementary School 
Boise School District began providing elementary educational services at Hidden Springs Elementary School at the beginning the 2009-10 school year. Prior to that Hidden Springs operated as a Charter School (HSCS).  
Facing serious financial difficulties threatening the existence of the school, HSCS approached the Boise School District and requested the District investigate the possibility of purchasing the school facility and taking over operation of the Hidden Springs school.  
Hidden Springs Elementary School currently serves the community of Hidden Springs, a rural residential neighborhood in the northwest section of the Boise School District. The school building was constructed in 2005.  Boise School District was the chartering entity that originally approved the petition creating Hidden Springs Charter School in 2001. Under the agreement, HSCS will no longer operate as a charter school. Instead, BSD will operate the school as a thematic elementary school maintaining the Harbor Method pedagogy.
