In a beloved annual event, the Class of 2019 ran "up the hill" to signal their last day at Basalt Middle School. We'll see you again in August!
Class of 2015
The graduates throw their caps in the air in celebration. Best wishes to you all!
Seniors Bailey Strobel and Keelie Roberts created a colorful mural representing Longhorn extracurricular activities that now hangs at the entrance to the gym. Thanks for sharing your talents!
The first-ever BHS team built a solar-powered, remote-controlled race car to compete against other high-school teams in the valley and beyond.
Student Art Show
Whimsical gnomes were on display at the annual student art show, which also featured paintings, photography, pottery, jewelry and much more.
The third annual obstacle course had students crawling through mud pits, slithering through tunnels, and sailing down a slip-and-slide. 700 photos here: http://bit.ly/1FF3s8X
College & Career Signing Day
The Class of 2015 announced their post-graduate intentions in an upbeat ceremony, where many students wore their college logo-wear. BHS looks forward to continuing this new tradition!

The (co)studio Design & Build class is creating a greenhouse for BMS to use in its science curriculum. Thanks to community mentors and partners, including Fat City Farmers, for their support!

Eleven members of the track team qualified for events at the Colorado State Track & Field Championships at Jeffco Stadium in Lakewood, May 14-16.
Scholarship Awards Night
Twenty-eight seniors received $300,000+ in local scholarship money at a Wheeler Opera House ceremony in early May, including these recipients of Light Ranch at Old Snowmass scholarships.
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.
