Welcome to
BASIS Scottsdale!

BASIS Scottsdale continues to build the scholarship and leadership of our students while strengthening our community as we enter our 14th year of operation.

In the Spring of 2017, BASIS Scottsdale improved its high national rankings as measured by the 2017 U.S. News & World Report by becoming the #1 Best High School, #1 Charter High School, and #3 STEM School in the United States.

Additionally, we sustained our ranking of “Top Performing U.S. Schools with Elite Students” in The Washington Post rankings. These accolades cannot be achieved without instruction by our extraordinary teachers and dedicated students, who are committed to raising the standards of academic success. We are proud of these accolades and the many other achievements of our students.
