Our Mission Statement
To provide a learning environment where students feel motivated to achieve to the best of their abilities in order to become successful and responsible citizens.
Buckhorn Elementary is located in Valrico and since our opening in 1979, Buckhorn has maintained high academic standards and expectations for all students. Our outstanding teachers, with assistance from support personnel, extend and enrich the curriculum to meet the needs of every student. We are very fortunate to have strong parental support and involvement, which enhances all aspects of the school. Through the combined efforts of the total school community we are proud to be recognized as a Five-Star School recipient since 2002.
On behalf of students, faculty, staff, parents, and school community, we hope that our web site will provide you with valuable information about our school. Please feel free to contact us directly if you need additional information.
