Innovation is a founding principle of the BASIS Curriculum, and our network has some notable innovations for the 2018–19 school year. We wanted to share a few of these endeavors with our families, including a new best practice called SPORK that is rolling out across our network in select math classes, a new approach to content underway at a sister school in our network, and three campuses that opened internationally this year, further extending our global classroom.
Dear BASIS Independent Brooklyn Families,
I write to celebrate a wonderful year of growth marked by exceptional achievement in our community, and I trust you have already celebrated individual progress with your children.
The summer hiatus is when I like to take a moment to reflect on all that has happened in our community. This past year I have seen the emergence of awareness amongst our students—not just locally but also globally. As a school, we strongly believe in nurturing both perspectives.
Inspired by the blissful feeling of uncovering connections, our blog Eureka! Brooklyn is about sharing moments that capture the essence of what it is to be a BASIS Independent student, teacher, administrator, or family.
