BASIS has succeeded in fostering a culture of competition and high achievement without sacrificing a sense of camaraderie and genuine concern for students' wellbeing, mostly thanks to the closeness between teachers and students. I hope to see a more diverse student body in the future, as well as greater investment in the school from the owners, especially given its success in rankings and standardized testing!

BASIS Scottsdale is an extremely rigorous school, but it is really worth it! I feel incredibly ready for college, and I am so blessed to have faculty that are happy to teach and really specialized in their fields. The quality of learning is not comparable to most schools, since teachers and students are constantly motivating each other.
This school is amazing. Even though the homework load is sometimes a lot, it is very rewarding! The intense rigor of the classes prepares you so well for college, and I am really happy that I'm able to complete my middle and high school education here at BASIS Scottsdale.
