Welcome to
BASIS Tucson North

The flagship BASIS Charter School, BASIS Tucson North (originally BASIS Tucson), opened in 1998 to provide area students with a globally competitive public education. Now one of the largest in the BASIS Charter Schools network, our rich and diverse student body extends throughout Greater Tucson.

Our strong core curriculum is balanced with a broad array of elective courses, and complemented by a robust extracurricular and athletic program selection of over 50 clubs and sports. BASIS Tucson North’s veteran teachers and leaders shape academic coaching programs and adopt innovative instructional strategies.

Our tradition of excellence reaches beyond the walls of BASIS Tucson North, building community-based initiatives that connect students, parents, staff, and local and global communities. Students show their Kestral pride across all grade levels, connecting at social events, proposing volunteer opportunity ideas, and organizing monthly community projects with administration.  We encourage all our families to participate and promote a spirit of service, respect, and giving.
