BASIS.ed – One of the Nation’s Best Academic Programs Is Tuition Free and Looking to Grow
Who wouldn’t want this opportunity for their child?

In BASIS charter school classrooms, students have access to tomorrow’s skills each and every day. The exceptional teachers, student-driven learning, and unparalleled academic support students experience at BASIS charter schools prepares them for global opportunities in college and beyond. While many primary schools have two teachers per classroom, the BASIS.ed two-teacher model is a little different.
In this model, one teacher is a Subject Expert Teacher (SET), and one is a Learning Expert Teacher (LET). The SET is just that: a teacher with a minimum four-year degree in that subject, while a LET usually has a degree in education or early childhood education. So imagine that your 1st grade student is learning math from a teacher with a mathematics degree, while your 2nd grade student’s Language Arts class is taught by a teacher whose passion is English; this makes for some enthusiastic teachers and learners in our community. At BASIS charter schools, primary students are exposed to a variety of subject matter, even Mandarin and Engineering.
One of the most unique aspects of the BASIS.ed primary program is the Connections course, which ties multiple subjects together to help students relate different aspects of the world around them. In this course, 1st grade students might read The Three Little Pigs in English and in Mandarin, and then build various model houses and attempt to “blow them down” in Engineering.
Want your children to be among the happiest kids on the planet?
Not only are BASIS students top-performing, they are also the HAPPIEST! This says a lot about BASIS.ed teachers and the incredible influence they have on our kids every day. Visit our BASIS schools results page to read more about our international benchmarks. BASIS charter schools give students an opportunity to be themselves—to let their true spirits and passions fly—and provides them the best environment to do so.
Amazing, passionate teachers who are subject matter experts are the secret ingredient to our students’ happiness and why BASIS charter schools have a reputation of excellence. Our teachers are the best role models: they manage their classrooms by earning and offering respect; by showing, not telling; and by embodying a continual pursuit of learning and self-improvement.
