School History The original Badin School building was completed by the French in the late summer of 1917 on an 8-acre plot between Boyden and Henderson Streets. The grounds were landscaped and maintained by ALCOA, the company responsible for a self-contained community with schools being a central focus. This building is currently in use and houses the Kindergarten through third grade classes.
During the 1950's and 1960's, another building was added that included classrooms, an auditorium, a library and office area. This building now houses our 4th-5th grade students.
Badin is a strong community school and a good relationship exists between home, school, and the community. For example, we use the Badin Inn Golf Club as a major fundraiser with an annual golf tournament. The cooperative spirit that the town was built upon is present to this day.
The natural areas are part of the appeal in Badin. Badin Lake and Morrow Mountain enrich this community. These natural beauties of the Badin area are the focus of a beautiful scenic panorama in the Media Center (showing trees, shrubs, birds, and flowers native to Badin; the lake, and a section representative of a dam, with stones from the area) done by a local artist.
Badin Students The current population of Badin School is 446. Our population has changed quite a bit in the past several years due to the local economy, a large redistricting of our entire school system and the fact that several new schools have opened.
Our school is divided into three main sections. In the older building, we have a Kindergarten-1st grade primary wing and a 2nd - 3rd grade elementary wing. The 4th and 5th grades are located in a separate building. We are fortunate to have a gym, a computer lab, an art room, and an auditorium that are in constant use by all grade levels at the school.
We have 1 to 1 technology for 3rd through 5th grade students - Each student has a Chromebook during the school day in all classes. For K-2 students, we have 10 tablets in each class as well as a desktop computer for presentations.
