Boise School District
At the direction of the District Executive Council and Superintendent, the Boise School District is working on guidelines for building use in the fall by outside groups. School will start virtually on August 17, Facilitron calendars will open October 1, 2020. At that time, we will comply with the guidelines set forth by the CDC and Central District Health -- understanding that we at this moment do not know what the future situation might be or what the expectations for gatherings will require. Currently, we are in Central District Health’s Category 2, and we will respect the current City of Boise guidelines concerning gatherings.

The downtown area and south Boise was served well by Boise High. The southwest bench area was served by Borah High. There was a need for a third high school in the northwest bench of the city. The new high school was opened in the fall of 1965. The school opened to 1,100 students from both Boise and Borah. Capital was named after the center of government.

Capital is a two-story school with a large auditorium and a large modern gymnasium. There is a nice courtyard in front of the school. The school has had only one major addition and that was in 1970 when the planetarium and a few classrooms were constructed.

The planetarium was named after T. C. Bird who served the District as Superintendent from 1957-69. The planetarium is a busy place serving all the District's schools, plus a special showing at Christmas time. The planetarium is under the direction of Mr. Tom Campbell.
