BASIS Independent Schools strive to raise the standard of student learning to the highest international levels. At the heart is a belief in never underestimating student potential and cultivating an environment of joyful learning. No one believes this more than Head of School Hadley Ruggles at BASIS Independent Brooklyn. She will quickly tell you engaged, independent students produce exceptional results in the classroom and beyond in the real world. She now proudly makes sure that belief is consistently put into practice at our Brooklyn campus.

As we near the end of our second year in Brooklyn, it's time to reflect on the hard work and success of all our students. We take a moment this week to highlight the achievements of a few enterprising middle school students, and look forward to others’ successes in the coming months and years.
In the wake of the announcement of astounding college acceptances of our first graduating class at BASIS Independent Silicon Valley and national high school rankings from The Washington Post and U.S. News and World Report (both of which featured BASIS.ed schools prominently at the top) we share with you a proud accomplishment of some of our own students here at BASIS Independent Brooklyn. We couldn't be more proud of our burgeoning Model U.N. team. In its first year competing, teammate members Palak and Sima won Best Middle School Delegation for their resolution on Internet Freedom of Speech at the Change the World Model U.N. conferences earlier this year!
