Welcome to Basin Elementary! The teachers, parents and students at Basin Elementary all work together as a community of learners to provide the best education possible for all students. All preschool through sixth grade students are offered an exceptional education with enriching activities and educational support in a safe and nurturing learning environment. We are focused on student achievement and personal growth.

The staff works diligently to meet the diverse needs of its students by providing leveled times for reading and math. Each student participates in a supplemental reading block time where students can be challenged with instruction at their personal level. Students in grades four through six are also placed in leveled math groups. These leveled opportunities increase student achievement by allowing students to either review missed content and skills or be challenged with material that is beyond their grade level.

At Basin Elementary, students are expected to model behavior based on four guiding principles: responsibility, citizenship, respect and integrity. Throughout the year, students learn about these character traits and how they are applied in our school environment. Our school environment encourages students and staff to be our very best in all ways.
