BASIS Independent Manhattan Reviews
BASIS is a rigorous academic school which promotes high level thinking and learning. Both of our children love the academics and most of the teachers. The teachers and the administration are nurturing and caring. There is an emotional support system which has been crucial for our oldest. We also love the new head of school- he is always available and readily listens to any issues or problems we might have and adjusts as needed.
BASIS is a relatively new school and it certainly isn’t perfect. However we believe that our children are getting a strong academic education, they are connecting with other kids socially and are supported emotionally. We are pleased!
