Why teach at
BASIS Charter Schools?
Our Teachers are Subject Experts & Passionate Educators
BASIS Charter Schools teachers are experts who love teaching and inspiring students to learn to love learning. Our teachers are treated as true professionals, and are encouraged to bring their own passions and interests into the classroom to convince students of the wonder of their discipline.
Successful & Growing Network
As a BASIS Charter Schools teacher, you are a part of a successful and growing network of US public charter schools. This means opportunities for career growth and advancement as we bring the BASIS Charter School Curriculum to new locations.
BASIS Charter Schools teachers and staff become part of a community of talented, curious, and interesting educators. Teachers are able to work with colleagues from around the country to incorporate best practices and cutting-edge approaches to education. For our teachers, we also provide some professional opportunities to teach the BASIS Curriculum abroad.

A Joyful Learning Culture
In all BASIS Charter Schools, we cultivate a culture of joyful learning where hard work is celebrated and intellectual pursuits result in exceptional student outcomes.
Highly Engaged Students
Our students are highly engaged and focused, while at the same time creative and curious. They are a joy to teach!
A Great Support
We recognize that starting a teaching career or even teaching at a new organization is an exciting experience, but it can also be intimidating, or even, initially, overwhelming. This is why we provide:
- A week-long summer training event to help new teachers integrate into the BASIS Curriculum Schools network, as well as connect with new colleagues.
- Guidance from a network of Subject Area Advisors, mentor teachers that provide specific insights on teaching the BASIS Curriculum
- Abundant resources to help you teach your subject to your fullest potential
- Engaged and supportive parent community
Because health, childcare, and travel expenses can add up, we offer an FSA that allows for pre-tax dollars to cover medical, dependent care, and transit.

At our core, we believe that motivation and hard work result in extraordinary outcomes, and it proves true: BASIS Curriculum students are ahead of global peers in readiness for college and beyond, and possess the self-direction and autonomy to tackle any challenge.Explore Achievements & Results
