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.

As a senior at BASIS, I can say that while it was academically challenging, I wouldn’t get the education and college advising I did here, anywhere else. The tight-knit community at BASIS fosters a close relationship between students and faculty, which I think is essential to a positive educational experience, conducted by teachers who are invested in every child’s education and success. The senior year capstone curriculum with the third trimester dedicated to a senior research project is a unique opportunity that is basically shaped around learning the self-directed skills you’ll need in college and focusing on your college applications.
Academics and teacher support is very good but issue of safety and security is very concerning. Member of school staff shows irresponsibility and unconcern on this matter even after multiple times of bringing up the safety issue with them. We as a parent hoping that they will understand that this is our children and everybody’s responsibility to be vigilant, diligent and proactive with regards to this issue.
