BASIS began as a visionary venture in 1998 when Dr. Michael and Olga Block, world-class economics academics, found that students in their classrooms who were educated outside of the United States were not only more prepared for the challenges faced in college than their American counterparts, but were simply "better" at being students. Digging further, they found that low expectations among Americ...an students led to a lack of curricular substance in U.S. classrooms. Creating a brand new school in Tucson, Arizona, they discovered that American students thrived when challenged, rising to and surpassing the best students in the world. Thus the BASIS.ed revolution was born!They developed a formula for success, refined regularly since then, that proves every child can become a great student when presented a rigorous course of study taught by Subject Expert Teachers and supported by a culture of excellence. What began as a single campus in Tucson has grown to become a unique, high-achieving, and unprecedented network of schools - five independent schools in Brooklyn, Manhattan, Silicon Valley, Fremont, and McLean, an international school in Shenzhen, China, and 26 charter schools across the United States.Today, BASIS.ed students have propelled their schools to become the top ranked in the nation and acclaimed world-wide, as noted in Amanda Ripley's book "The Smartest Kids in the World (and How They Got That Way)."How BASIS Schools Graduate The World's Best-Prepared StudentsThe BASIS.ed curriculum and program of study are based on 15 years refinement of a rigorous, challenging, supportive academic experience, ranked among the very best int he world.
