BASIS Mesa has been a part of the Eastmark community since its founding in 2012, serving grades 5 –10 in the East Valley. Since then, BASIS Mesa has expanded its offerings. BASIS Mesa now serves over 660 students across grades 3–12, and continues to grow with campus expansion plans in progress.
As a growing school in a rapidly expanding community, BASIS Mesa has partnered with community members to implement and foster a “Community Counts” character program. Every month during the school year highlights a character trait, from respect to teamwork, and is celebrated with pep assemblies, spirit days, and more. The outcome of this program is to create a partnership between the teachers, staff, parents, students, and community members and for BASIS Mesa to be not just a school, but an important community center in east Mesa.
