This school is great! It gives students the opportunity to take accelerated classes starting in the 6th grade. I remember in middle school we were taking high school classes like Biology, physics and chemistry. Later on in high school everyone take AP classes. Once you are in high school you are given the option to have off campus lunch and we are in downtown dc near all the good restaurants.

BASIS DC loves to flaunt how rigorous the curriculum is, I would know because I am currently a student here. While we have great academics and many opportunities to get help with school work we have absolutely no school spirit. If your looking to be the star quarterback or the best cheerleader this school is not for you. This school lacks the idea of sports except for our cross country team. The administrative are so not involved. Students rarely see them, if you get this opportunity to say hello it's usually because you are in trouble. Speaking of discipline, BASIS DC focuses on the smallest things imaginable. A student could simply laugh too loud and receive a stern and aggressive talk from the dean or even principle, while there are major issues that the head of school could be focusing on. This school is a great academic opportunity but if you're looking for a mix of academics, school spirit, pep rallies, sports, having good club and activities this school is just not for you.
Basis DC challenges students and creates a positive learning environment for all. Basis DC not only holds us to extremely high academic standards but has extraordinary teaches and staff that are always willing to help with anything, from grades to home life. I strongly recommend this school for anyone who enjoys learning about the world around us.
