BASIS.ed provides comprehensive education management services to all BASIS Charter Schools.

The consistent level of success achieved by BASIS Charter School students stems directly from our passionate subject-expert teachers and their use of the BASIS Charter School Curriculum. The signature of our learning community is the combination of creativity, innovation, and disciplined experimentation that is powered by traditional content knowledge. We are steadfastly dedicated to celebrating and passing on a love of learning, and a shared understanding of the value of critical thinking, responsibility, and motivation to all our students. That is what the BASIS Charter School Curriculum, and every one of our teachers in every one of our schools truly represents.

Do we set and monitor high standards? Are we transforming American education? Do BASIS Charter School students outperform their peers across the world? Yes. Yes. And yes.
