I knew going into BASIS that it was mainly a STEM school. BASIS has decent resources for kids who want to go into STEM. The main areas where I think there could be improvement is in their "Outreach" programs. BASIS Chandler, in particular, does not have a guidance counselor. This has caused much consternation, especially since the student body is so competitive there are high rates of depression. If a student is struggling emotionally, there are almost no resources for that student to use. Where in a typical high school there might be a peer support program, guidance counselor, or support groups for a student to join, there isn't at BASIS Chandler.

I think everything you learn here is super shallow. Honestly, probably all high school are like that, but BASIS especially skims the surface of the water at a really fast pace, so basically you know stuff, but you don't know how to use it. It is pretty tragic really to think that the majority of the parents, students, and teachers, admins are all blinded by the fact that BASIS is super elite. Haha. Definitely consider Hamilton as an option when your transitioning to high school here.
BASIS Chandler is a Rigorous AP-based Charter school. The curriculum is very demanding of students and requires hard work. I have been a student at BASIS Chandler for 6 years and though I have found my journey to be tough, I love the intense academic opportunities I have been provided with. The students are all dedicated to learning more and expanding upon their future, and our consistent competition to stay in the top ranks has led BASIS Chandler to be a great school for any persevering student to attend.
