City Hall was originally the Boulder City Elementary School, completed on September 26, 1932 by the Bureau of Reclamation and operated with Six Companies funds. The building has distinctive brick patters along the front and end walls and a red clay tile roof; it has been restored on the outside of the building to closely resemble its original appearance. The school was outgrown quickly after its construction. Many additional satellite schools were created throughout Boulder City, such as the basement of Grace Community Church, the American Legion Hall, and Camp Williston buildings.
On March 4, 1941, ground was broken for the first Boulder City High School, what is currently City Hall. Before the high school was built, Boulder City High School students were bused to Las Vegas and graduated from Las Vegas High School. The first class to graduate from Boulder City High School was 1942.
In 1949 ground was broken for what is today's Boulder City High School located on 5th Street and the end of California, which was followed by Mitchell Elementary School in 1970, Garrett Junior High School in 1979, and King Elementary School in 1991.
The yearbook is entitled the Aquila, which is the Latin word for eagle.

In August, 2014, Principal Kent Roberts left Boulder City High School to lead Green Valley High School in Henderson, Nevada. Assistant Principal Amy Wagner became the official principal during the 2014-2015 school year.
The school is known for its annual homecoming parade. In the 1970s BCHS students would go to the top of "B" hill for a large bonfire to celebrate Homecoming. Prior to that the "B" was outlined with torches or lanterns so that it could be seen at night throughout the city. "B" hill now is all residential.
Boulder City high school's flag football team is notable for the dominating program and state championship in 2015. Flag football became a CCSD girls sport in the 2012-2013 school year as a winter sport. Unlike other sports, flag football was based on location and region, not by student population. This caused a disadvantage to smaller schools having to play larger schools in the same bracket for the CCSD title.The first season the lady eagles barely missed a play off spot ending with a record of 8-10. In the returning season of 2013-2014, the lady eagles returned 9 varisity players and came back with an undefeated regular season of 18-0 to take the Southeast title. The lady eagles continued on to the Sunrise Championship where they fell to Green Valley 13-18. The lady eagles ended the 2013-2014 season with the record of 20-1, tying Green Valley's record from the 2012-2013 season for the most wins in one season. In May 2014, the first All Star Flag football game was held at Foothill High School. Boulder City had 4 girls qualify to represent the Sunrise Team in the All star game: Jeanne Carmel (quarterback/cornerback), Logan Kanaley (running back/outside linebacker), Jane Nevarez (wide receiver/cornerback) and Kinsey Smyth (wide receiver/safety). Boulder City head coach, Chris Morelli was nominated head coach of the Sunrise Team, leading the Sunrise team to the victory over the Sunset All stars.Returning for the 2014-2015 school year, the lady eagles came back for another dominating season. The Lady Eagles went undefeated again in regular season, to take the Southeast Title and end again with an 18-0 season. Post season the lady eagles continued to move forward in the tournament blanking opponents like Del Sol and Green Valley. The Flag Football team went on to win the Sunrise title against Foothill, beating the Falcons 20-0 and securing their spot in the state game. The state game was located at Del Sol High School where Boulder City played the Sunset Champions, Centennial. There the Lady Eagles beat Centennial 7-6 and ended the season undefeated with a 22-0 record to take the CCSD Championship.
