The D.C. branch of Basis starts Aug. 27. This week, students are being drilled in study skills, reading and math in the school’s new Penn Quarter building as part of a voluntary two-week boot camp.
“Public charter school known for stressing hard work, depth of knowledge comes to Washington”, Olga Khazan, Washington Post, August 15, 2012. The article captures a sense of wonder at the breathtaking rigor of the BASIS curriculum. Parents seem excited: one mom moved from High Point, North Carolina to D.C. so that her two children could attend BASIS.
Will BASIS open a campus in San Antonio next year? Its charter application is still under review at the Texas Education Agency. Show your support for BASIS San Antonio by sending a message to Nick.Fleege [at] basisschools.org.
