About Us

Bagby Elementary School is an award-winning school that values academic excellence as well as parental and community support. Serving approximately 500 students in grades TK/K - 5, our safe, warm learning environment is apparent from the moment visitors enter the beautifully landscaped campus. We are proud to house numerous special programs which are an integral part of our campus. We embrace the whole child by celebrating diversity, instilling the joy of learning, and encouraging the exploration of talents through art and music.

Our students are encouraged to be "Upstanders" and are given opportunities to be responsible citizens. 21st century skills drive our instructional practices to provide opportunities to grow and become critical thinkers, collaborative workers and creative problem solvers. Our curriculum is rich in opportunities to explore the sciences and practice algebraic thinking. It is our goal to not only produce students ready for their academic future, but also to be cooperative and caring members of society.


Cambrian School District, a caring and collaborative community, develops creative and critical thinkers who communicate effectively, value diversity and are ready to excel in a global society.
