Our Goal

Basin Elementary is committed to providing a challenging learning environment that encourages high expectations for success through developing appropriate instruction.  Our school promotes a safe, orderly, caring, and supportive environment.  We believe that each child is an individual, that all children are creative, and that all children need to succeed.  We strive for an atmosphere of cooperation, with respect for individual differences and community values.  An integral part of our learning process will have our students learning by asking questions, solving problems, and making thoughtful decisions. 


Why Basin Elementary School?



Keeping up with the latest and greatest trends in education, Basin Elementary School incorporates flexible seating, standards based grading, project based learning, small student to teacher ratio, a family-like setting, a Gifted and Talented program, Title I program, a wide array of technology for students, and much more. New for the 2018-19 school year, Basin Elementary School will be offering a lunch program with food from the award winning kitchen at Boulder Elementary. We will also be adding a morning tutor and after school program thanks to our 21st Century Grant.
