BASIS is a good school because it pushes its students and puts them at a higher level. However, it pushes them too far. When I was a student there, I had no time for anything other than homework. As a middle school student, I had hours of homework every night. Looking back, I wish I had gone to a school that gave me more time to enjoy my childhood instead of just focusing on homework 24/7. The teachers are nice and know what they are doing, but students are taking so many classes that their attention is diverted and they can't focus on any one class. I used to hate being sick because missing one day of school meant that I would spend my entire weekend doing homework. If you want your kids to be completely focused on academics, BASIS is great. But if you want more than just education from a school, go somewhere else.

I have had my kids enrolled at Basis Prescott since it opened. It has been a Godsend to Prescott as the public school system here is terrible. The teachers know how to teach their content, there are consistent after school times for extra help, the staff responds to emails and issues quickly. My oldest son graduated last year and walked into a $10,000/year scholarship at a private university just because he graduated from a Basis school. My kids are not geniuses, but have been provided with an outstanding education at Basis Prescott and have really soared to their maximum potential
I'm one of the few LGBT+ youth in a highly conservative grade. My peers never say anything to my face, but if something need be said, it's behind my back. My significant other has been mad fun of because I am LGBT. Over time, the majority of my peers have gotten closer to me, and see me more than a label. Prescott is a "red" city. There's one black male in my grade of 31 people. Needless to say, there's a lack of diversity; there's 10 females in my grade. The teachers, the help they provide, and the friends I've made over the years all make it worth it. Having depression myself, I can say BASIS is most certainly not for everyone. It's essential to reach out and ask for help- this has helped me mature emotionally.
