Enter to learn......Go Forth to serve.

Welcome to Buchanan Elementary

Welcome to Buchanan Elementary School. At Buchanan, we follow the Boys Town Model and encourage our students to make good choices every day to enrich both their academics and social skills. Through Boys Town, our school has a bi weekly “Good Example” social skill and students are recognized when they show these skills. Students are encouraged to take ownership of these skills and be good examples to others!

Parents, teachers, and students work closely together to help ensure that the culture of Buchanan is one that is welcoming to everyone who walks through our halls and classrooms. Students are provided with enriching and meaningful educational experiences. We will continue to work with our community to enrich our student’s lives and the community we live in.

Buchanan is a K – 5 school that also provides Junior Kindergarten. We provide a rich balance of reading, math, and writing to enhance learning and give our students the tools needed to find success in their academic careers and beyond. Both enrichment and intervention activities are used daily to make certain that the needs of every student is met.

Buchanan Elementary is an accredited academic institution as required under the South Dakota Department of Education. We continue to integrate technology into our building and provide students with a wide variety of access to technology. Teacher collaboration and assessment is continually utilized to drive and improve instruction. Buchanan Elementary averages 415 students per year with class sizes ranging 20 -27.

Welcome back to school! We look forward to another great year!
