The Art & Science of Teaching: The BASIS Independent Faculty Video

We are excited to unveil to you the fruits of a couple of non-stop days in October - our BASIS Independent videos! Last week, we shared with you our first video in the series, our BASIS Independent Parent Video. Check out the BASIS Independent Parent Video here. 

Here's a refresher on the project: Over the course of three days, we filmed three separate videos: one about the family experience with our school, the teacher perspective on what it's like to work here, and the student perspective on what it is like to learn here. We love these videos and hope you do, too.

They are raw, spur of the moment, unscripted reflections of what it's like to be a part of the BASIS Independent community.

They breathe life into Education Redefined and demonstrate what happens when you combine an accelerated, rigorous curriculum with exceptional, expert educators in an environment of support and deep respect for the art and science of learning.
