Basis is popular, and spend alot of time marketing their academic strength. I found their teachers to be young and unqualified. The administration was not supportive when a child in my sons class was bullied. The only thing my son was doing was memorizing information for the next test. All of the students look sleep deprived when you see them at lunch! My son is enjoying learning much more now that he is at another school, he is doing well, and he has a newly developed curiosity about learning.

My time at Basis was so incredibly valuable. The curriculum is academically-focused, which really helped me understand how important education really is. But I never would've survived the rigorous work if our teachers weren't as good as they'd been; I have many fond memories of them encouraging us to work hard, while also acknowledging the difficulty of balancing the work with the stress of being a teenager. They were always very supportive, and it was obvious from their lectures that they truly loved what they taught; I believe that that infectious passion was what made me strive to keep improving my skills, I believe that those are the best kinds of teachers you could have in schools. The atmosphere with other students was also very lax and I barely remember any real conflict; it was and is a very diverse school, it felt like every student had a unique viewpoint and background, but not once did I feel like my or someone else's views were disrespected.
BASIS Phoenix is a great environment for academically focused students to grow up and thrive. I found that the teachers and staff were all actively involved in my education and was intent of getting me to succeed in all my endeavors. I do think that if your child is interested in sports or other extracurriculars, BASIS is not the school for them unless they are willing to work much harder than the average high school student.
