BESD Grows Together

Our Vision:

Dedicated to student success through world-class education.

Our Mission:

A community passionate about student success.


We Are Buckeye!

A Community Passionate About Student Success

Our preschool through 8th grade district is home to more than 5,800 learners in the west valley. We have a total of nine campuses that are rated highly-performing by the State of Arizona.

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.
