Teacher effectiveness: Disagree


- a parent
Teachers assign excessive homework to cover curriculum. They do not teach in the class, just expect students and their parents to complete unreasonable amount of homework.

Amount of homework: Disagree


- a parent
Basis Peoria Principal and teachers do nothing but assign excessive homework to the students to cover the curriculum.




- a parent
Basis Peoria teachers burden students with excessive homework to cover the curriculum. The students are constantly pressured and overworked over endless homework weekdays and weekends, and have no joy in learning the subjects.



- a parent
Always had a good respond time from teachers and principal of the school is great and genuine person who really loves the school and children.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a parent
Teachers will always have time to see you if needed before or after school. They will send emails if signature is missing on a paper. They are willing to spend more time with students after school to help them.


Amount of homework: Agree


- a parent
One to two hours of homework per day is just right amount of time that I think every child should do.

Develops character: Agree

Since my son started going to school, he had been exposed to curriculums from 1) a private Catholic school and a private non-sectarian school in NV, 2) a traditional public school in CA and, 3) BASIS, a public charter school. Through the years understanding the different school systems, the choice of BASIS became evident because of the curriculum flexibility it offers. After a couple of months, my son liked the experience and decided that BASIS is the school for him. As a parent, that enthusiasm is very important. After all it is his challenge, not ours. So, I give BASIS "5 stars" based solely on the curriculum aspect. The choice of BASIS Peoria was incidental because our move depended on which BASIS school (among 4 different waitlist options) would make the first call. Whatever extra-curricular activities and after-school sports needed to maintain a balanced student life, my husband and I take the time to supplement him with other outside-school activites in addition to what BASIS meagerly provides. BASIS Peoria speaks highly of their teachers and their credentials which is always good. However, the curriculum that is put in place is what attracted me and my son to BASIS, not the teachers. The teachers complement the curriculum required of them to implement. I believe that if traditional public schools put in place a similar curriculum that capable students could elect to take, the disparity would not be so pronounced. Of course, there has to be some extra level of involvement coming from the parents, a luxury not prevalent nowadays because of the "time" involved. However, it is the commitment my husband and I embraced when we chose to become parents. So far my son is content to be going to BASIS Peoria.

For most children it is too much homework. Many choldren do not understand the concepts taught and this makes for homework night to be even more tiresome.

This is a highly competitive school. Students will do whatever needs to be done to succeed. Theft is prominent as calculators lost, usually remain so. Digging out of lunch bins is not uncommon. In general, good kids but theft does occur.
