BASIS Tucson Primary is the original BASIS Curriculum School for primary students, kindergarten through grade 4. The curriculum and methodology first developed here laid the foundation for the entire BASIS Curriculum Schools network. Our rigorous and accelerated curriculum engages students in hands-on, dynamic lessons in literacy, humanities, math, and science as well as in an array of special courses: engineering, Mandarin, visual arts, drama, and music.
In addition to our core classes, BASIS Tucson Primary boasts a fantastic Fine Arts Department. Our faculty stage an Arts Night twice a year, and our third and fourth grade students conclude the year with full stage productions such as School House Rock! and 101 Dalmatians.
Outside the classroom, our students take field trips to places such as the Chinese Cultural Center, the Flandrau Science Center & Planetarium, the Reid Park Zoo, the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, Tucson Village Farm, and the Tucson Symphony Orchestra. We offer a range of extracurricular activities, such as Knitting Club, Chess, Boardgame Club, Kindness Club, an array of sports, Harry Potter Club, and a variety of art and reading clubs. The list is always evolving based on the ideas and talents of our teachers.
Our school embraces a diverse population of students and promotes respect for others as well as fostering individual social and emotional growth. Our strong school community is nurturing, welcoming, and supportive. Our goal is for our students to develop the skills necessary to be a strong and capable learner and a positive member of our school community and the greater world outside our doors.
