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
Dear Parents and Students,
The 2015/2016 school year is an exciting time at BASIS Mesa. In our third year of operation, we are still a young school with room to grow and excel. I am looking forward to a year of academic excellence, well-rounded extra-curricular activities, and new and renewed friendships. We will celebrate our first graduating class this year—a huge milestone for both the students and the school.
BASIS Mesa is part of the nationally ranked and highly rated BASIS charter school system. We uphold the highest academic standards, and are committed to giving every student the tools he or she needs for academic success. Last year, BASIS students in Arizona took thousands of AP tests and outscored students in Shanghai and Finland on the Programme for International Student Assessment. When you enroll your student at BASIS Mesa, this is the world-class education that you are choosing.
We have an amazing team of teachers this year who are student-centered and experts in their fields. We have parents who are passionate about supporting the school’s goals, and students who are ready to rise to the challenge of the rigorous BASIS curriculum. Together, we will reach new levels of excellence in the 2015/2016 school year.
Let's make it a great year!
Head of School, BASIS Mesa
