We invite you to join us at our Open House for preschool–grade 12 on Saturday, November 4 at 10 AM. Our Open House is the best way to discover our amazing teachers, learn about our advanced curriculum, and meet our fantastic current students and parents!
At our first Open House of the 2018 admissions season, prospective families will follow a mock schedule based on grade level and experience our academic program, expert teachers, engaging extracurriculars, and student life in action.
Our Open House starts in the Theatre with an introduction from our Interim Head of School Ron Kim about the welcoming, vibrant, growing community that our students, parents, and teachers are creating here at BASIS Independent McLean.
Then prospective families will be grouped into Elements, which is the way BASIS Independent McLean separates grade-level classes. These small grade-specific groups will receive a glance at a day in the life of a BASIS Independent McLean student and an overview of the curriculum for that grade.
Our Student Ambassadors—students in grades 5–10 who are so excited by the school they want to help other students discover it—will lead Elements around to several classes to hear from a combination of six grade-appropriate Early Learning Teachers (ELTs), Learning Expert Teachers (LETs), Subject Expert Teachers (SETs), Dean of Student Affairs, and current parents.
Our ELTs, LETs, and SETs are passionate about their subjects and the BASIS Curriculum and can’t wait to share their knowledge with prospective and future students. Our Deans will share how they support our students and teachers in and out of the classroom. Additionally, current parents will be available to answer questions about the school, the teachers, the admissions process, and the culture.
Though not an official tour, the mock schedule also gives prospective families an opportunity to see classrooms and common areas throughout the school.
The morning wraps up with a question and answer session with our admissions team, where they answer questions about our acclaimed program, the application process, and other topics of interest to your BASIS Independent McLean experience.
No matter what grade a family is interested in, our immersive Open House will help families truly experience our dynamic classrooms and nurturing community first hand, as well as provide details about the exciting journey through BASIS Independent McLean and beyond!
Please note: This structured event will start at 10 AM. Please plan to arrive 10-20 minutes prior to 10 AM.
