Mr JensenDear Basin Community,


It is with great pleasure that I write this letter to you as the new principal of Riverside Middle/High School. My family and I appreciate the warm welcome to Basin and we look forward to become a part of the school and community. I come to you with 15 years of experience as an educator; teaching social studies at the middle and high school level. I also have 8 years of administrative experience as an Athletic Director.


This year our Big Horn County School District #4 has updated our Mission and Vision statement:


Mission: To inspire, challenge and educate students to become successful citizens.   


Vision: We are a community of responsible citizens prepared to achieve our potential, find our passion, and pursue our dreams. 


This year my main goals are to follow the path that our board, administration, staff and community has laid out in strategic planning. 


  1. Continue the tremendous academic success we have had in learning and teaching that happens everyday in the classrooms at the middle and high school. 

  2. Continuing to improve on the lines of communication amongst all stakeholders within the school district.

  3. Continue to build a positive culture where students can challenge themselves in a safe and caring environment. 


I am truly honored to be given this opportunity and look forward to embracing the traditions that are unique to Riverside, but also usher in a new era of our school district in the new school facility. I believe my main responsibility as the principal at Riverside is to put our teachers in the best possible position to excel in their areas of expertise, which in turn, puts our children in the best possible position to succeed. I look forward to meeting all of you and please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, concerns, or ideas you would like to share make our school and community a better place.


Best Regards,


Matthew Jensen
