BASIS Independent students find joy in discovery, both inside and outside of the classroom.
BASIS Independent students are fundamentally risk takers. Students are not afraid to challenge themselves, their peers, their teachers, or their favorite authors. The hallmark of a BASIS Independent student is an appetite for academic challenge; the hallmark of BASIS Independent teachers is their tireless work each day to inspire and satisfy that hunger. Despite their intellectual drive, BASIS Independent kids are kids, they are real, relaxed, interested in athletics, art, music, cooking — you name it. Students are incredibly supportive and respectful of one another.
Our students are smart but above all curious. Children become BASIS Independent students in our classrooms, inspired by our great teachers, our excellent curriculum and our raised expectations for what they can achieve. At our school, we promise an education that teaches children that learning and success depend on commitment and hard work. We encourage their willingness to take on challenges, to manage the inevitable disappointments and to understand that the most authentic, joyous feelings of accomplishment are not given or bought, but earned. Our most successful students realize and fully take advantage of the endless help offered at BASIS Independent.
