THE BASIS EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY
BASIS seeks to educate American students at an internationally competitive level. With raised academic expectations, implemented through an accelerated curriculum that pushes students to reach their highest academic potential, BASIS prepares middle and high school students to compete with their peers in countries with highly performing educational systems, such as Finland, Canada, Japan, and Korea.
The BASIS educational philosophy, which is quite straightforward, rests on three legs: A rigorous curriculum, student accountability, and knowledgeable and effective teachers.
