About Us

Banks Elementary cultivates strong individuals that engage in nature and learn how to be part of a pack, which harkens back to the bobcat, Banks’ school mascot.

At Banks, we emphasis the positive traits of the bobcat, who is independent, yet family-oriented. Our teachers furnish expectations by sharing goals and objectives in order to help explain how each lesson builds toward those goals. When our parents join our Banks Bobcat Pack, they regularly meet with teachers in order to stay involved.

Located in the Tucson Mountains just south of Saguaro National Park, Banks incorporates the outdoors into multiple facets of the student experience. Representatives from Kitt Peak make frequent visits for stargazing nights, fourth- and fifth-graders participate in a sleepover at the Cooper Center for Environmental Learning and Banks even hosts two teams in the Girls on the Run program!
