We Are Buckeye!

A Community Passionate About Student Success

Welcome! Growth continues to be a part of the Buckeye Elementary School District. This year, we have grown to over 5,750 students, as well as over 650 outstanding employees. Our team is excited to have the privilege of working with your children. In preparation for the 2022-2023 school year, BESD teams worked to improve and expand curriculum resources and instructional strategies.

In addition, district educators participated in training and workshops to continue their own learning as part of our ongoing commitment to providing your children with the best educational experience possible.

About BESD

BESD is focused on helping students develop future-ready skills, including critical thinking, design, collaboration, and problem-solving.  As many of the jobs of tomorrow do not yet exist today, BESD believes all students should be provided the opportunities that best prepare them to adapt, grow, and adjust to a dynamic and changing world.

In Buckeye, we truly are a community passionate about success!

This statement is to confirm that all schools in the Buckeye Elementary School District are qualified as Title One schools.
