Mission & Mindset
Basalt High School Mission
Every student will be equipped with the knowledge, skills, habits of mind and personal qualities to achieve success in the 21st century world and to create choices for his or her future.
When students and teachers possess the belief that intelligence can be developed, they are exhibiting a "Growth Mindset." We improve, learn, and achieve excellence through hard work and effort. Challenges are stepping-stones to improvement not roadblocks to avoid. Approaching work with this mindset encourages our school community to focus on continuous improvement regardless of where we begin on the learning spectrum.
