WELCOME TO BASIS PHOENIX
BASIS schools offer students something no other American public school does: An education that prepares them according to the highest, most rigorous international standards. Our schools have been ranked consistently among the best schools in the United States--and the world.
"I am involved with BASIS because I know it employs a model that works. BASIS establishes the elements essential to student success: high expectations, great teachers who are experts in their disciplines, and tension within the system to ensure teachers and students are driven toward success. With these fundamentals in place, the BASIS Schools have achieved phenomenal results.”

BASIS Phoenix opened in August 2012 featuring the same course of study as our award-winning sister schools in Scottsdale and Tucson. This year, BASIS Phoenix offers a rigorous college preparatory curriculum for students in grades 5 through 11. Our first 12th grade class will graduate in May 2014.
The Lower School program, which comprises grades 5 through 7, 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. In addition to language arts and math, Latin, classics, general science and physical geography are introduced in 5th grade. Physics, chemistry and biology are offered as individual science courses beginning in 6th grade. Seventh graders continue the study of these subjects while also deciding whether to continue to pursue Latin or to switch to the study of a modern foreign language such as Mandarin, French or Spanish.
The Upper School program, which has brought BASIS Scottsdale and BASIS Tucson North repeated recognition as one of the top 10 high school programs in the country by U.S. News, Newsweek, and The Washington Post, offers students a rigorous college-preparatory curriculum. BASIS Phoenix Upper School students begin taking Advanced Placement® (AP) courses as early as the eighth grade and will take at least eight AP courses and six AP® exams before graduating from BASIS.
