Welcome to
BASIS Oro Valley Primary!

Since first opening in 2014, BASIS Oro Valley Primary has far exceeded standards set by other primary schools throughout the country. Each day, students engage in hands-on, dynamic lessons using a rigorous curriculum with real-world applications.

The school emphasizes tolerance and understanding by incorporating social and emotional growth objectives into lessons on a weekly basis. Our hard-working and dedicated faculty and staff lead by example to instill the school’s foundational values into every aspect of the day.

We recognize the importance of unstructured play and group work in helping students learn to advocate for themselves and their ideas in compassionate ways. Students also have plenty of opportunities for independent practice with concepts to ensure comprehension. Resiliency is taught through example and by helping students learn from their mistakes.

Most importantly, we understand children are young, have missteps, do not always learn linearly, and make our jobs incredibly rewarding. We can’t wait to see what your child is capable of at BASIS Oro Valley Primary!
