Some may call BOV a weeding-out school, but the reality is that the teachers here put their utmost effort in their students. Each teacher offers at least one office hour slot and is happy to accommodate students’ busy schedules. In addition, peer tutoring is available almost every school-day after-school, dedicated to helping struggling students get back on track. BOV is the place to go to if you seek a challenging academic atmosphere while surrounded by excellent support. Arts and Sports are still lacking compared to nearby high schools, but constantly improving because the admin. values student input.

I went to BASIS from 8th-10th grade. This school is very meticulous and unforgiving on its students and functions very similarly to that of a business. However despite that, this school will definitely teach you how to study effectively, how to maximize what you are learning, and give a general appreciation education. The environment is HIGHLY COMPETITIVE here! I currently go to Purdue university, and in my opinion attending BASIS is equally as stressful as attending a credited university. If you are coming to this school it is highly recommended that you have an established work ethic, and that it was your choice to come to this school. Remember this school is #3 in the nation, so do not take this school lightly and be prepared to work hard. Further more this school does not ensure that you go to a good college- it ensures that you go to college. With that being said if you are going to this school good luck!
A very good, prestigious charter school. Good change if you do not want to attend the local public schools. The curriculum is pretty much solely STEM based. It is very difficult and students can expect a ridiculous workload every night. The school doesn't really teach any practical skills or have an extensive arts program. The sports program is very small and clubs are limited.
