BASIS Peoria Reviews

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.

Basis Peoria is academically outstanding and forward thinking and the teachers are fantastic. They are all really nice and approachable. Though Basis does teach an academically rigorous coursework, it is lacking in extracurricular activities. That also is understandable because of the small population that currently go to Basis. However, because of the small school, everyone knows everybody else. There will never be an unknown face(unless they are new) because you see every face at least twice a day in the hallways. Basis is more preoccupied with its academic field than its social field. Basis students are loaded with homework from the beginning of the school year to the end.
I love the challenge that BASIS represents. Offering so many AP courses, although the work load is tough, has really helped me prepare for college and beyond. I wish that the school had a more diverse elective pool, such as nutrition or culinary classes or even a music history elective. The school is very STEM focused, which I excel at, but I love the challenge of the more humanities based classes, of which there are few. Overall, it is a school for go-getters who love to learn and love to work hard.
