Join the Revolution—Help Lead the Revolution

The BASIS Curriculum for grades 5–7 features accelerated science and liberal arts studies. Students in grades 5–7 work hard to reach their academic potential by developing the critical thinking skills and intellectual agility that are crucial to college prep. Teachers hold students accountable for their own organization and work ethic, providing guidance when necessary.

As a BASIS.ed teacher, you’ll be called a Subject Expert Teacher. You will have autonomy in choosing how to run your classrooms, so you’ll need to identify what methods are best for communicating subject matter to your students.

Why should you choose the Subject Expert Teacher (SET) role?

  • You will have the freedom to teach your passion.
  • You will focus on one subject with eager-to-learn students.
  • You will work on a collaborative team with intelligent peers.
  • You don’t have to be a certified teacher, but you will need subject expertise and a passion for teaching!

Training for New BASIS.ed Teachers

As a new BASIS.ed teacher, you'll receive:

  • Intensive training in the summer before you attend our BASIS.ed Institute. There you'll learn about the innovative BASIS Curriculum and how BASIS charter schools inspire—and achieve—academic excellence.
  • Peer-mentoring lead by seasoned teachers and on-site managers.
  • Opportunities to collaborate and share best practices through our social network, BASIS.ed Connect.

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.
