BASIS Scottsdale prepared me to enter college as a freshman ready to take on the challenges of a rigorous curriculum. Its close-knit, diverse student body allowed me to experience new ideas and interests everyday. The AP heavy curriculum helped me take advanced classes and further my knowledge. I loved BASIS and would not change much about my schooling!
Review BASIS Scottsdale
While this is not reflective of the teaching instruction, there has been an incredible amount of turnover this academic year. In the 7th grade, my child has lost 4 teachers and one class is on the 3rd teacher! BASIS teachers, while they seem dedicated and well-educated, generally have very short tenures which negatively impacts the school's environment. I've heard of many instances where my child (a straight A student) has been told that a question is "stupid" or "you should know the answer to that." BASIS classroom instruction is the EXACT OPPOSITE of the Socratic Method; it's all lecture, cramming, and test-taking. Again, this is not reflective of the teacher quality at BASIS, it's the expectations set by the school.
Excellent Teachers at Basis Scottsdale who go above and beyond to help their students succeed. I wouldn't have enrolled in my dream college without the dedication and effort those teacher's put into my education. Yes, they expect a lot from their students, but its that expectation that pushes the students at Basis Scottsdale to rise to the challenge. And a good majority of the time, the students do rise to the challenge and thrive. College Counsellors are excellent in helping out students for college admissions.They know exactly what students need to do to get into college.
