A California Distinguished School
Home of the Bobcats
Banyan Elementary School is a unique elementary school. Located adjacent to Mt. Boney, with a panoramic view of the mountains and the Potrero Valley, it is truly a neighborhood school. When visiting the campus, you would see parents walking their children to school, often with younger siblings trailing behind or pushed in strollers. Entering the Banyan campus, you might hear the sounds of birds perched in plentiful trees in Spring, or the rustle of leaves in the Fall. The laughter of children, the conversation of many involved parents, and the bustling around of hardworking teachers reflects the energy of the school.
The Banyan staff views everyone’s mission as: “Building the future through personal growth and academic success.” The school is home to children, teachers and parents alike. Together the parents and entire staff work to help each child achieve success. A mural on the campus shows a bobcat (the school’s mascot) jumping over the moon. It’s our belief that each child can reach remarkable goals. The children chant “Effort Equals Success” at weekly Bobcat Assemblies. They are continually told that their hard work will help them achieve academic success. We welcome you to Banyan. We hope you become an active, involved member of the Banyan Elementary team, your child’s home away from home.
