About Borrego Springs Schools

Borrego Springs Unified School District’s small and rural setting in the middle of the vast Anza Borrego Desert State Park offers our students a unique educational experience in a tight community surrounded by caring adults and natural beauty. Our students benefit from the plethora of snowbirds from colder climates who descend upon our town every October - May and bring with them a rich array of life experiences, talents and educational backgrounds which they share freely with our students.

Volunteers fill our schools and assist in every aspect from academic tutoring,  classroom read alouds, speaking on career days and teaching everything from music to sewing to tennis to robotics to photography. Our students’ lives are richer and more well-rounded due to these wonderful influences,  friendships and philanthropy. Local civic groups such as Rotary, Civic Foundation, Soroptimist and the American Legion bestow countless opportunities and gifts on our students in the form of school supplies, monetary donations and field trips.

In addition, the Anza Borrego Desert State Park offers our students opportunities to explore, appreciate and learn about the science that surrounds them. High School science students intern in the various departments of paleontology, geology and archaeology; 4th graders ride along with rangers as they patrol the desert and 5th graders camp in our local park in authentic yurts or Mongolian gers all the while absorbing lessons about plant and animal adaption to our unique environment.

To balance our students’ incredible outside the classroom activities, all teachers (K-12)  focus on rigorous vocabulary development and the writing process embedded within their teaching.  With the new Common Core Standards and their focus on analytical thinking and writing, our students must learn to express themselves and their thinking clearly on paper or word documents.

Parents and community members are encouraged to attend the variety of informational evenings offered throughout the year. The topics covered are a result of parent input during the development of our LCAP or Local Plan. Please attend  School Site Council meetings at the Elementary or Middle/High to learn more about our schools. Dates are listed on the calendar.

We invite all to come and participate in BSUSD's wonderful programs!
