Kristen Ramos

Head of School

Ms. Ramos has been a dedicated leader within BASIS Charter Schools since 2012. After two successful years at BASIS Scottsdale as the Special Education Coordinator and Upper School Director, Ms. Ramos took the same role at BASIS Mesa in 2014 before transitioning to Head of School and successfully expanding the school to kindergarten through grade 12. Ms. Ramos shortly left BASIS Mesa for a year and served as Head of School at BASIS Phoenix South Primary. She is very happy to be back “home” at BASIS Mesa now serving the BASIS community for over 9 years. She graduated from Arizona State University with a BA in Special Education and MA in Curriculum and Instruction, while also completing coursework for her second MA in Education Administration.
