Developing Learners and Leaders.
About the School
Bluffdale Elementary is proud to be a "Covey Leader in Me Lighthouse School" where helping each child develop leadership and life skills is part of the culture. A number of other special programs add to Bluffdale's positive, nurturing, and learning-rich environment. These programs include Junior Achievement, music education funded through a Beverley Taylor Sorenson Arts grant, and a Bluffdale Leadership Team of Students. Within the school is a Portuguese Dual Immersion school comprised of one classroom per grade level receiving content instruction in Portuguese. (Student teachers are not assigned the dual immersion classrooms unless they request to do so and are proficient in Portuguese.) Spirit Tags are awarded to students throughout the year in recognition of individual accomplishments.
Bluffdale serves 950 students in kindergarten through 6th grade with a safe of 40 teachers. Teachers collaborate in Professional Learning Communities in order to improve student learning and achievement.
