BASIS Charter Schools History

Prioritizing a Higher Standard for Academic Excellence

The network of BASIS Charter Schools began with our founders Michael and Olga Block’s belief that the goal of a great education is to provide students with choices, limitless opportunities, and the ability to shape their own futures. Having discovered the disparity between American, European, and Asian educational systems, the Blocks set out to create a more robust curriculum for Arizona students. Starting in Tucson with just 58 students, BASIS Charter Schools have been educating middle and high school students since 1998, and primary school students since 2013. BASIS prides itself on its tuition-free, open-enrollment, public charter schools which are rooted in the cultivation of love of learning and desire to excel.

Academics are the cornerstone of the BASIS Charter School Curriculum, and as a result our schools are consistently ranked in the Best High Schools list by U.S. News & World Report. In fact, ten of our schools are ranked in the top 20 Best Charter High Schools for 2022. Our graduates earn, on average, more than $100,000 in college scholarships per student. These students move on to some of the nation’s top universities fully prepared to meet the demands of college coursework.

Through our dedication BASIS has now grown to a thriving network of 37 schools in Arizona, Louisiana, Washington D.C., and Texas with more locations on the horizon.
