I’ve been a student at BASIS Phoenix since 5th grade, and I honestly love it! Subject Expert teachers, specifically ones dubbed “veteran teachers” who have been on campus since it’s opening in 2012, give in their all to their students and always persevere through the rough days like Friday’s before seasonal breaks. Everyone just wants the best for each other, especially since everyone grew up together. BASIS not only teaches you simple soft skills, like time management and teamwork, but also a sense of community that is hard to find outside of colleges.

BASIS Phoenix has incredible teachers who are motivated and want to see their kids succeed. The high level of academic success attracts some of the brightest students and staff available, and everyone is really determined to do well in the system. The system itself is typically quite good, with a heavy focus on a high end, but balanced education. There is however, very limited opportunities for extracurriculars or sports, and these programs are usually playing second fiddle to the education. The biggest issue however, was interference from the administration, and corporate, who could seem more interested in the schools stats rather than student success. This could lead to staff changes and with bad replacements for innocuous reasons, and the teachers can often be left out in the rain. Overall quite good, but if corporate would give the teachers and local admins more stability, support, and independence, things could get alot better.
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.
