BASIS Peoria Primary opened with over 620 students in kindergarten–grade 4 in August 2017 due to local demand for a primary school that could prepare students for the high academic expectations of the BASIS Curriculum in grades 5–12. Prior to the 2017–18 school year, the BASIS Peoria building was renovated to prepare for the incoming primary students. The school added new playgrounds, larger classrooms, bathrooms in each kindergarten room, and a health office.
In our k–4 program, students are not only taught content, they also learn necessary organizational, time management, and study skills. The advanced BASIS Curriculum includes a wide array of classes including English, math and science, Mandarin, physical education (both traditional and Tae Kwon Do), music, drama, and art.
With an emphasis on low teacher-to-student ratios, academic and behavior intervention, student wellness, community interaction, and cross-curricular excellence, our staff delivers a truly exceptional educational experience. “Buzz” on by and see what being part of the “hive” is all about!
