To celebrate the opening of BASIS Independent Manhattan, our Visual Arts Subject Expert Teacher, Mr. Stephen Smith, tasked his 6th grade class with creating a work of art that would mark the occasion. After thoughtful examination and brainstorming, the emerging theme for the students was that our school community is a global community. They wanted to create a reflection of the diverse backgrounds of their classmates and to show they are united with one common goal—to receive a world-class education in a joyful and rigorous environment.
Inspired by the blissful feeling of uncovering connections, our blog Eureka! Manhattan is about sharing moments that capture the essence of what it is to be a BASIS Independent student, teacher, administrator, or family.
