The BASIS Effect:

The “BASIS Effect” stands as an experience for students attending BASIS Charter Schools, encapsulating the distinctive characteristics and traits cultivated during their time at BASIS. The “BASIS Effect” is a testament to the personalized and enriching environment provided by BASIS, allowing students to not only excel academically but also develop a set of characteristics that set them apart. 

Unlock these characteristics and more in your student – by joining the #1 School District in Texas! 

BASIS Students Are Known for Their:

Group 878
Spontaneous and Fun Fact Filled Conversations. Our students love learning and often, unprompted, provide listeners with facts and thoughts fueled by that learning. A ride home after school may ignite a recitation of the planets in the solar system, even though no question was asked.
Group 879

Self Confidence. In their journey through BASIS, our teachers are charged with ensuring students understand the material and each individual is performing at his/her personal best. When this problem-solving happens, students gain the confidence that they can do it. Early on, we help students to think critically and problem solve to build confidence. They are able to apply those tools in making presentations and participating in activities that encourage the growth of confidence.

Group 880

Individuality and Self Expression. We encourage our students to be themselves and to be tolerant of others. We do not have uniforms for that very reason, as we want students to be able to express their personality and beliefs without fear of retribution.

Group 881

Teamwork. The world requires that we be able to work with others in a nonjudgmental and collaborative way. As early as Kindergarten, we have students participate in activities that promote teamwork. A BASIS student exhibits the traits of an effective team member in and outside of school – positive interactions and teamwork on the soccer field often stem from the team presentation a student made in class.

Group 882

Leadership. BASIS students have and take a variety of paths to learning and portraying leadership. They design extracurricular activities, present their proposals to decision makers and then run the club or activity. They lead our Honor Societies and compete nationwide at Math Decathlons. Many of our students have built businesses while in college and beyond. BASIS students are leaders now and of the future.
