What Makes Our School So Unique?
Absolutely everything we do is designed to enhance the learning experience of our students and show them that the sky is the limit when it comes to their academic potential. Our approach produces a powerful outcome: students who want to be successful at school and teachers who work exceptionally hard to ensure a student’s success.
Every child deserves an opportunity to grow and excel academically and have access to teachers who have faith in their ability to do so.
● Since their founding in 1998, BASIS.ed schools have relentlessly pursued academic excellence in order to become not only the best schools in the nation, but in the world. Now, a standardized global test proves that we are succeeding.
● In 2012, BASIS.ed students scored in the top 1% of the world’s schools in reading and math and the top 5% in science, not just outperforming the vast majority of U.S. elite private and public schools, but also top-performing educational “giants” such as Shanghai, Korea and Finland.
