Mission / Vision
What Makes Us Special

Banks Elementary cultivates strong individuals that engage in nature and learn how to be part of a pack, which harkens back to the bobcat, Banks’ school mascot.

At Banks, we emphasize the positive traits of the bobcat, who is independent, yet family-oriented. Our teachers furnish expectations by sharing goals and objectives in order to help explain how each lesson builds toward those goals. When our parents join our Banks Bobcat Pack, they regularly meet with teachers in order to stay involved.

Located in the Tucson Mountains just south of Saguaro National Park, Banks incorporates the outdoors into multiple facets of the student experience. We partner with Saguaro National Park, Camp Cooper, and the Desert Musuem for field trips. Representatives from Kitt Peak and the University of Arizona make frequent visits for stargazing nights. We have an outdoor learning space and a new outdoor fitness center for all students to use.
