BASIS Mesa opened their doors to incoming students in August 2013 serving Grades 5-10.  In 2014, BASIS Mesa will be offering Grades 4-11; Grade 12 will be added by 2015.   BASIS Mesa may also add K-3 in the future.

Divided into a Lower School (Grades 5-7) and an Upper School (Grades 8-10), BASIS Mesa offers the same rigorous academic program as our award-winning schools in Scottsdale and Tucson, and at the same time takes into account the previous educational background of all incoming students.  Beginning in August 2014, Lower School will be expanded to include Grade 4.  

The Lower School program focuses on building organizational and study skills and creating a deep knowledge base necessary for students to tackle the demanding AP-based Upper School curriculum. Highlights of the Lower School curriculum 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 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 Upper School students can begin taking Advanced Placement® courses as early as the eighth grade and will take at least eight AP courses and six AP exams by the end of their junior year.

BASIS Mesa also takes pride in the number of students participating in after-school activities. Students can participate in intramural or varsity sports such as cross country, football, basketball and volleyball as well as extracurricular activities including Leadership Club, Science Bowl, Fencing, Drama, and Literary Magazine.   For more details, visit the Extracurricular tab
