Our Mission Statement

Here at Basin Elementary School we are in a unique position to maximize each individual child’s inherent potential due to a multitude of factors which include the structure of each classroom, small student to teacher ratio, community involvement, and strong parent teacher interaction. We truly believe that every student should feel valued and honored , and are taught that all people deserve to be afforded the same respect. We strive for an atmosphere of cooperation with respect for individual differences and community values and an awareness of our place in the larger world.  

Basin Elementary School is committed to providing a challenging learning environment that encourages high expectations for success through developing appropriate instruction. We work with every student to develop a growth mindset by encouraging goal setting and that dedication and hard work lead to great accomplishments. The environment also offers flexibility in the classroom. Our school promotes, and models a safe, orderly, caring, cooperative and supportive environment. We strive to offer the educational tools that encourage a rich academic and social learning experience.                                  

We believe that each child is an individual, that all children are creative, and that all children can, and need to succeed. Basin Elementary School recognizes that each of us has a unique style and pace of learning. An integral part of our learning process will have our students learning by asking questions, solving problems, and making thoughtful decisions. We encourage students to take a personal interest in their learning. Basin Elementary School is preparing each child for advancement into middle and high school by ensuring they have a solid foundation.
