Basis Tucson Primary School Reviews

At my high school, the academic requirements would be considered rigorous and overwhelming by most. While yes, this would be fairly true, as 6 APs are required to be taken and most take around 10, it is all for the preparation of higher level academic work, which, as I have heard from alumni of the school, is definitely worth it. Although this work is difficult, the teachers and upperclassmen are always willing to help with any problems encountered, which helps create a closer knit community and a positive atmosphere. While it does eat up a bit of time, as all classes are either AP or Honors classes, this taught most of us time management. Also, many may worry about the amount of sleep, but they are just classes, they have lots of homework at some times, and little at others, and sleep is usually cut due to social media and games, not class work.

Our school is comprised of mostly left-leaning, liberal students and teachers who are mostly accepting of all political views, sexual orientations, religious and ethnic backgrounds. When the school was at its previous location, it had a much smaller student body. Now that the school has moved locations and expanded, there are a considerable amount of right-wing, conservative students and parents; thus, acceptance of the LGBTQAA community is a bit harder for peers, which affects some of the posters and activities that the POWER (Diversity) Club can ensue.
The teachers at BASIS Tucson (now BASIS Tucson North) are fully committed and willing to aid students in their studies. Many of my teachers have a university like structure to their class where lectures are given 80% of the time and notes are optional. The teachers are thoroughly educated and understand their subjects. They also communicate in an efficient manner allowing for students to ask questions that are then fully explained. Because the BASIS Tucson North community is relatively small in size it is very possible to develop a good relationship with your teachers and get to know them on a personal level. Teachers also understand if you need an extension because you've had an emergency or are feeling stressed out, they are willing to compromise and grade fairly.
