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.
In our K–4 program, students are not just taught content, but the necessary skills of organization, time management, and study habits. The curriculum includes a wide array of classes ranging from English and Math/Science to Mandarin, Physical Education (both traditional and Kenpo), Music, Drama, and Art. Additionally, BASIS Peoria Primary is proud to offer our signature Connections courses for grades 1–4. There are two different kinds of Connection courses: "All Connections" focuses on the knowledge students acquire in their other classes and brings it all together, presenting students with scenarios in which they work in small groups to solve problems, drawing on the entirety of their learning. "Fine Arts Connections" does the same, but focuses on their Fine Arts knowledge acquired in Music, Drama, and Art.
