There are many reasons families choose a BASIS Charter School. There’s our college preparatory, STEM-focused K-12 liberal arts curriculum, our exceptional national and international results, rankings, and student outcomes, and the nurturing environment of our two-teacher primary school model. There’s our early foreign language instruction, our celebration of learning, and our inclusive environment and respect for individual differences – just to name a few. There are some myths out there about us, so we want you to hear directly from us why our founders started the network of BASIS Charter Schools, and why we choose BASIS for our own children:
- We love nerds.
- We believe that school should be hard.
- We expect excellent teachers to produce excellent student outcomes.
- Our students are participants, not spectators, in their own education and in sculpting their futures.
- We believe that educational success is the responsibility – and the reward – of every individual in our network.
