Welcome to
BASIS Mesa

Since its founding in 2013, BASIS Mesa has been known for being extraordinary. Our campus sits atop the old GM Proving Grounds—formerly 40 miles of asphalt laid down in 1953 in the middle of the Sonoran Desert as a test track for some of the fastest, most remarkable vehicles on Earth. After closing in 2009, that piece of desert was developed into the innovation and technology hub that is now Eastmark—currently the sixth fastest-growing community in the country—and home to our beautiful K–12 campus.

We strive to honor our history by being something of an academic proving ground, where our students—at age five or age eighteen—are encouraged to test out their most creative ideas, expand their intellectual limits, and push the learning needle to red. Our exceptionally diverse student body who represent their widely varied cultural and economic backgrounds embody the source of our tremendous strength.

School Highlights

  • As a growing school in the rapidly expanding community of Eastmark, BASIS Mesa partners with community members to implement and foster a “Community Counts” character program. Each month, the school highlights a character trait—such as respect or teamwork—and celebrates with pep assemblies, spirit days, and more. Partnerships among teachers, staff, parents, students, and Eastmark community members allow BASIS Mesa to participate in the growth of this innovative new community in east Mesa and benefit from its rich resources, alongside neighboring tech leaders like Apple and EdgeCore.
  • We are one of three BASIS Charter School campuses that house kindergarten through grade 12 under one roof.
  • BASIS Mesa’s Class of 2019 graduated seven National Hispanic Scholars (determined by performance on the PSAT).
  • Much of our faculty hold advanced post-graduate degrees: 48 percent have a master’s degree; 4 percent have a doctorate degree, and 4 percent have a law degree.
  • In 2018, of the 154 BASIS Mesa students who took 480 AP exams, 85 percent earned a passing score of 3 or higher.
  • During the 2017–2018 school year, our students traveled with their teachers to both Washington, D.C., and Costa Rica.
