BASIS MESA K-3
Is evaluating interest in expanding to serve grades K-3. If you are interested in receiving updates on this possibility, please join our interest list.
BASIS Mesa opened their doors to incoming students in August 2013 serving Grades 5-10. In 2014, BASIS Mesa serves Grades 4-11. The school will expand to grades 4-12 next year.
The school offers the same rigorous academic program as the award-winning BASIS schools in Scottsdale and Tucson, while taking into account the previous educational background of all incoming students.
In Grades 4-7 the program focuses on building organizational and study skills and creating a deep knowledge base necessary for students to tackle the demanding AP-based curriculum which starts in Grade 8. Highlights include Latin and Classics in the 5th grade, separate courses in Biology, Chemistry, and Physics beginning in the 6th grade, and the choice of French, Latin, Mandarin, or Spanish, in the 7th grade. The Social Science courses tackle advanced content and all students will complete a minimum of Algebra 1 by the end of seventh grade.
BASIS is consistently ranked as one of the top 10 high school programs in the country by U.S. News, Newsweek, and The Washington Post. BASIS Mesa students will take at least six AP courses and six AP exams by the end of their junior year.
MESSAGE FROM THE HEAD OF SCHOOL
It is an honor of distinction to serve the students and families as the Head of School for BASIS Mesa. Let me share why.
Having worked with BASIS for several years and been a part of its impressive growth, I have been able to witness its effect on American education here in Arizona and throughout the country. Too long have stewards of the American educational system sat idly as the world passed by. Too long has mediocrity been the acceptable norm.
BASIS is different.
The recipe for success at BASIS is fairly simple. Students are challenged by teachers who are passionate and knowledgeable about what they teach. Students are supported on an individual level by an administrative team that has their best interests at heart. Finally, the school is supported by an organization that continues to challenge the status quo with a modest goal, revolutionizing American education.
A student that chooses BASIS makes a conscious and decisive statement to their peers here and around the world that greatness is within their grasp, and they will not settle.
