BASIS Tucson North (originally BASIS Tucson) opened in 1998 as the first BASIS Curriculum School and is currently one of the largest high schools in the BASIS Charter School network. It is the network’s flagship high school with the longest serving BASIS Curriculum School veteran teachers and school leaders. BASIS Tucson North has consistently been ranked among the best high schools in the nation by U.S. News & World Report. We have a rich, diverse student body, with students representing over 40 different zip codes in the greater Tucson area. Our teachers and staff continue to work together to shape academic coaching programs and adopt innovative instructional strategies. In addition to our strong core curriculum, we offer a diverse array of elective courses in fields such as philosophy, computer science, engineering, photography and digital arts, cinema history, theatre, orchestra, psychology, and choir. We also offer robust extracurricular and athletic programs with over 50 clubs and sports to choose from.
While continuing our tradition of academic excellence, our community is working together to raise funds for our Annual Teacher Fund campaign, and our capital campaign to support the addition of a new gymnasium, field, and parking. Every year, we seek to expand community-based initiatives that build connections between our students, parents, staff, and the greater local and global communities.
Every month our school has a community volunteer project that is open to all families to promote a spirit of service, respect, and giving. Students offer ideas and help our administration in organizing these events. We plan social events for students across grade levels so everyone can connect and show their Kestrel pride. As our school continues to grow, we look forward to supporting our students and encouraging them to see themselves as leaders, scholars, and responsible citizens.
