The perfect example of a school. An iconic model of flawlessness and integrity. This school is designed for only the most academically inclined students. It's like panning for gold; all the dirt is simply filtered out into the many other high schools in Arizona. We don't tolerate outcasts here, they get sent to Class E. Only people with 200+ IQ are allowed to attend. We hope you join our school See you soon!

Primarily, our school offers a very rigorous and academically advanced curriculum that places us above the vast majority of our peers. This academically focused curriculum results in sub par sports programs and most extra-curricular clubs are academic in nature. The environment for the students is very stressful and can create tension between the students and parents, but at the end of the day when our students are graduating they are leaps ahead of any of their fellow applicants. The school culture is nearly non existent because of the lack of school activities that we can latch on to and form a school identity around, but throughout most grades the social interaction is still decently solid. I hope to see the reputation and experience of our school grow as more students join and attempt to enhance the culture that we lack to help our students feel more at home in this school.
I love BASIS Peoria for its size. As a small school, we have a tight-knit community where no one, not teachers, students, or faculty, is a stranger. We may not have the same diversity of extracurriculars as public schools, but we make it a point to excel in every club we do offer, from Volleyball to Chess. The fact that we are run by a corporation does make it hard to be truly heard by admin, but this is well made up for by BASIS’ unmatched college preparation program. Students don’t schedule meetings with their counselors as in Public high schools as BASIS requires college counseling as a class during senior year. Here every student interacts with their counselor on a daily basis, so everyone gets a personalized picture of what schools, application plans, and scholarships are best for them, as well as comprehensive advice on how to be our best selves, not only for college applications but for job interviews, preparing us for all of life’s challenges beyond the courtyard gates.
