• AT BATESVILLE SCHOOL DISTRICT (BSD) our mission is to Empower Today's Students for Tomorrow's Challenges. We create space for opportunity and innovation because our vision is Every Student Growing Every Day. We are Pioneer Nation!

    The Batesville School District is made up of seven great schools that offer personalized learning plans for every child. The Pioneer Nation begins with Preschool, which offers infant and toddler care. There are three elementary schools to choose from: Eagle Mountain, Sulphur Rock, & West; Batesville Junior High School Charter, and Batesville High School Charter. White River Academy is our alternative learning environment for grades 6-12 non-traditional students.

    BSD offers co-curricular and extracurricular activities that suit the personal interests and strengths of individual students. Our district offers a complete fine arts program, K-12. We also offer competitive sports in grades 3-12 and many intramural participation opportunities. Through these activities, students will learn leadership, work ethic, citizenship, and teamwork. These character-building traits exemplify Pioneer Pride!
