BASIS Tucson North (originally BASIS Tucson) opened in 1998 as the first BASIS Curriculum School and is currently one of the largest high schools in the entire network. It is the network’s flagship high school with some of the most veteran teachers. Our teachers and staff are working together to shape academic coaching programs and adopt innovative instructional strategies. New courses are being introduced in the high school this year, including engineering, orchestra, philosophy, real analysis, AP Art History, and pre-law.
In addition to continuing our tradition of academic excellence, our community is working together to raise funds for our Annual Teacher Fund campaign, as well as a capital campaign to support the building of a new gymnasium, field, and parking. We are also looking to expand community-based initiatives that build connections between our students, parents, staff, and the greater local and global community.
Each month our school has a community volunteer project that is open to all families to promote a spirit of service, respect, and giving. Students offer ideas and help our administration in organizing these events. We also have social events planned for students within and across grade levels so students can connect and show their Kestrel pride. As our school grows, we look forward to supporting students and encouraging them to see themselves as leaders, scholars, and responsible citizens.
