The BASIS Charter School Curriculum
Academic success on our campuses is achieved one grade level at a time. Our proprietary curriculum is taught by Subject Expert Teachers who develop their lesson plans to encourage critical thinking, and development of communication and organizational skills. A co-teaching model, with two instructors per classroom in grades 1–3, maximizes students’ learning potential and nurtures their desire to excel. The combination of our STEM-infused, liberal arts curriculum and dedicated teaching staff lays the foundation for achievement in middle school, high school, and beyond.
