Leading the world in math, reading, and science
The Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA), administered by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is an exam given to 15-year-olds around the world to evaluate critical thinking and applied knowledge in math, reading, and science.
On the OECD Test for Schools (based on PISA), BASIS Independent students soar, so much so that if our students formed their own nation, they’d be the top performers in the world.
Excelling at college-level work in high school
Deep learning happens when students are challenged. Our curriculum is centered around this idea, and there is no better manifestation of challenge than AP and post-AP coursework.
BASIS Independent students perform exceedingly well on AP exams compared to peers in the U.S. and students around the globe.
BASIS Independent students excel in the world's top colleges and universities.
College admissions are one of the ultimate indicators of strength and recognition of a program. BASIS Independent students work incredibly hard; we’re proud to offer a program that acts as a launching pad for students to achieve their dreams.
