We have studied the principles and practices of the best-performing schools in the world. We continue to consider what works well, and analyze how to make the BASIS Charter School Curriculum better, year after year. As a result, from kindergarten through grade 12, the BASIS Charter School Curriculum engages, challenges, and inspires, as it has since 1998.
From an academic standpoint, the BASIS Charter School Curriculum is designed to provide a foundation of disciplinary knowledge that fuels critical thinking, problem solving, and creativity.
From a behavioral standpoint, teachers in every grade focus on and motivate the development of two fundamental competencies: the organization of complex tasks and the productive management of limited time.
From a cultural standpoint, the BASIS Charter School Curriculum invites participation, requires an appreciation of diverse perspectives, pushes boundaries, and demands professionalism—even from students.
