The mission of BASIS Independent Schools is to raise the standards of student learning to the highest international levels. Anyone who has come for a visit, tour, or interacted with our team in any capacity knows how much we love our teachers and how, structurally, our administration is set up to serve their needs and support them as professionals. Their passion and subject matter expertise is the secret ingredient to our student happiness and why BASIS.ed schools have the reputation of excellence that we have. Our teachers are the best kind of role model — they manage their classrooms by earning and offering respect, by showing not telling, and by embodying the continual pursuit of improvement and learning for learning’s sake. They remind us every day what an art & science it is to teach.

Thoughts from our teachers

The culture at BASIS.ed allows me to optimize my teaching time. With the support of the LET (learning expert teacher), I feel that I can get the most out of every minute of class time. And I feel like I'm really TEACHING.

Subject Expert Teacher

I worked in a public school for five years, and left because I felt frustrated I was told to do things in my classroom that I did not feel were the best use of my students' precious time. Today, my students are fully engaged in learning from bell to bell.
