This was an issue for my own student during middle school years and occurred during a class The school seemed very ill-equipped to even address the issue, and definitely not equipped to combat it. For my own student it's no longer an issue, but I don't know what the school is doing now as a whole.
The classrooms are so disruptive and the students bear little or no consequences. The teachers are not held to the standards, failing to meet deadlines that are imposed harshly on the students. This doesn't teach respect, compassion or integrity.
Very poor learning environment; multiple changes in administration, with the latest adding nothing of note to the school; poor discipline overall in the classroom and school as a whole; extremely rude staff. My daughter did well enough in the middle school but we should have transferred out at the high school level, a choice most of her friends wisely made. If you choose to remain, be sure you research the requirements they will expect you to meet and what help they don’t provide. Basis is not about education. It’s about numbers. And the numbers don’t always add up. Ours has not been a positive experience.
I would recommend asking a lot of questions before entering this school. It works for some students, it definitely doesn't work for others. The "rigorous" curriculum comes with some caveats, one being that it does not always have teachers qualified to teach the courses, this is true of the AP classes that are required of the 8th and above classes. Those students take an AP exam and that AP exam translates into their school grade. In our experience, the teacher is not always qualified to teach these high level courses. An AP class is not just another class. We have had the experience of being told to "buy the book," without any help in which of many, many AP prep books, and one month before the exam told to "do the exercises." Juggling several AP classes as a 9th and 10th grade student is more than a rigorous curriculum, it requires trained teachers. Basis does not always provide them and the students suffer.
