My son is a 5th grade student at BASIS Peoria. In the past, when I asked my son what he learned at school, the answer was always, "nothing." Now, he is so excited to tell me about everything he is learning. He makes connections to what he is learning at school everywhere we go. In the past, he loved to miss a day off of school. Now, I could not get him to take one day off to leave for vacation (so we left as soon as the school dismissed). We LOVE BASIS!

BASIS is very academically focused, challenging students to work harder every day. The rigorous classes offered prepare students for college unlike other schools. They also offer unique opportunities, such as the Senior Research Project to help students reach their full potential. It's obvious why BASIS Peoria is ranked #5 in the USA for best schools. However, the school is lacking in athletics due to its extreme focus on academics, depriving students from participating on proper high school sports teams and being competitive with other schools. Although it had improved over the years that I've been at the school, the organization and management could be more efficient.
I have been at BASIS Peoria for the past seven years and it’s been a roller coaster. There are amazing things about the school like the diversity and community and bonds you create with teachers and staff. I don’t regret my decision to stay at BASIS since 6th grade, it’s been challenging but I love it. It has made me who I am, and I will always love the school despite the stress that came along with the workload and tests. If you are up for the challenge, highly recommended. If you’re a STEM person, highly recommended. I, unfortunately am a humanities person, so being in a STEM-leaning school was quite the challenge, but I’ve learn so much.
