SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., April 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- A new BASIS charter school serving primary grades K-4 is set to open in Scottsdale in the fall of 2018. It will be the third BASIS charter school in Scottsdale, and the network's 21st charter campus in the state of Arizona.
"The demand for the BASIS Curriculum remains strong in Scottsdale," said BASIS.ed CEO Dr. Peter Bezanson. "That demand makes sense since Scottsdale was the site of the network's second school to open, in 2003 – a school which is currently ranked #1 in the United States by U.S. News & World Report."
The new open-enrollment, tuition free public charter will be called BASIS Scottsdale Primary – West Campus. It will open to about 350 students in kindergarten through 4th grade for the 2018-19 academic year. BASIS Scottsdale Primary – West Campus will be located on the northwest corner of East Tierra Buena Lane and North 76th Street.
When it welcomes students in the summer of 2018, BASIS Scottsdale Primary – West Campus will join 34 other campuses in the BASIS Curriculum Schools network, including BASIS Scottsdale (which serves students in grades 5-12) and BASIS Scottsdale Primary – East Campus (a K-3 school).
"The BASIS Curriculum serves younger students exceedingly well – with early paths to learning Mandarin, learning to read, and learning to appreciate science and math, among other subjects," Dr. Bezanson said. "And our two-teacher model for the primary grades also sets our schools apart."
The BASIS Curriculum Schools network is highly-regarded for excellence by any measure – national rankings, Advanced Placement results, OECD/PISA testing, and college admissions, among others. It serves more than twenty thousand individual students with the world class BASIS Curriculum and consistently outstanding student outcomes.
BASIS Scottsdale Primary – West Campus is hosting an Information Session for prospective parents. Here are the details:
- The event is on Tuesday, April 17, 2018 from 6:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
- The event is at the new BASIS Scottsdale Primary – West campus, located at 7496 E. Tierra Buena Ln., Scottsdale.
