At BASIS Charter Schools, we help students develop a love of learning, a desire to excel, and an ability to rise to academic challenges.
In order to create a curriculum that both challenges and supports your student, we did our homework. We studied the highest-performing schools across the globe and gleaned the most innovative ideas and techniques. The result of our research was a charter school curriculum that works in the moment, yet is able to be reimagined each school year.
Our curriculum includes subjects that may surprise you. Mandarin, engineering, classic literature, linguistics, and economics are all part of our academic program—and these subjects are taught earlier than you would expect, with many of them starting in primary and middle schools. Beginning in grade 6, students take all three sciences—Biology, Chemistry, and Physics—to prepare for honors and Advanced Placement® work in upper grades.
The BASIS Charter School Curriculum is taught by degreed Subject Expert Teachers (SETs) who are experienced in their fields. In grades 1–3, our SETs partner with Learning Expert Teachers (LETs) to create a specialized and individualized approach. Key concepts and skills are spiraled from kindergarten through high school to help students understand connections between different subjects, and to prepare them for Advanced Placement® Exams. This reinforcement and advancement of concepts helps your student absorb and retain material.
At every grade level, we encourage students to apply today’s knowledge to tomorrow’s problems. We build your student’s critical thinking and problem-solving skills, giving them the confidence to face future challenges head on.
