WHAT GRADES WILL BASIS PHOENIX OFFER?
BASIS Phoenix will offer grades 5 through 10 during its initial year of operation (2012-13). The school will add one grade per-year until we reach our goal of a 5th -12th grade campus in the 2014-2015 school year.

WHAT KIND OF SUPPORT DO YOU OFFER STUDENTS?
BASIS requires all students at a new campus to carry a Communication Journal, which is the BASIS term for an assignment notebook or daily planner. Students are required to use their Communication Journals to keep track of homework; the Communication Journal also serves as a mode of communication between teachers and families.
In addition to the Communication Journal, BASIS teachers will work to ensure students are prepared for success in the highly-accelerated BASIS academic program. Teachers will work with all students to build good study and organization skills from the outset and will hold regular Student Teacher hours before or after school to work with students outside of regular class time. Finally, BASIS Phoenix will employ an academic support specialist who will meet individually with students who need or would benefit from additional assistance.
NEXT YEAR, MY DAUGHTER WILL BE TRANSFERRING TO BASIS. HOW WILL THE SCHOOL HELP HER ADJUST?
In the initial year of operation, BASIS Phoenix will modify its curriculum to best fit the academic level of incoming students while still providing a world-class education. Each student will be given a diagnostic test (this is NOT an admissions test) before the start of the school year to provide additional data to our teachers about the current academic content knowledge of incoming students.
DOES BASIS OFFER EXTRA-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES?
BASIS puts academics first; however, we recognize the value in a well-rounded education. BASIS Phoenix will offer a wide range of extra-curricular programs in academics, fine arts, and sports. The specific offerings are driven by student interest. BASIS students at existing campuses can choose from chess club, science team, drama, band, rugby, fencing, volleyball and basketball, just to name a few examples.
