BASIS Independent McLean
Parent: My middle schooler has been going to Basis for 3 years now. We love it! It should be stressed however that it is not for everyone. It is very rigorous and academically inclined. If your kid’s preference is sports or extra curricular activities rather than academia then this school isn’t for you. This school focuses immensely on academics. The teachers are extremely committed to the kids. My child has found a level of focus that I personally didn’t know she had before attending Basis. I couldn't be happier, but it does require commitment from the parents and the student(s). I see a couple of negative comments and I really believe its mostly due to parents expecting for the material to be easier. I’ve been to PTA meetings were some parents want less rigor in academics and more sports. I find that hilariously insane cause this is not that type of school; its not for everyone, but then again, neither are ivy league schools.
