BASIS in the Media
BASIS Schools are among the best in the world.
“I believe BASIS offers something many schools do not – a common sense solution to the issues facing American K-12 education. I am involved with BASIS because I know it employs a model that works. With these fundamentals in place, the BASIS Schools have achieved phenomenal results.”
- Dr. Craig Barrett, Chairman and President of BASIS Board of Directors, retired Chairman & CEO of Intel Corporation
“The [Program for International Student Assessment, or PISA, test] results were breathtaking. The average BASIS student not only outperformed the typical U.S. student (by nearly three years in reading and science and four years in math) but outscored the average student in Finland, Korea and Poland [each among the world's best schools] as well. These kids even did better than the average student from Shanghai, China, the region that had ranked number one in the world on PISA in 2009. “
