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 Peoria truly lives up to their reputation as the 8th best high school in the nation. BASIS Peoria has amazing teachers, challenging courses, competitive academic environment, and a wide selection of clubs. However, my one complaint is that school requires the students to take certain AP classes as their elective. The rule is that if a student took an Honors class, that student must take the AP Class in that subject the next year. For example, I took Honors Biology last year, meaning I have to take the AP Biology class this year. When I tried to change my AP Biology class to AP Physics 1 with the Head of Operations, they refused. Now I cannot take AP Physics C, even though I plan to major in Astrophysics. The AP requirements get in the way of the student's plans and are quite irritating to many students who wish to study certain subjects.
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.
