Félicitations! Gratulationes! Felicitaciones! Middle and high school students received honors based on their performance on a 2021 national language exam. Every student in grade 7 and above chooses a language (French, Latin, Mandarin, or Spanish) to study, and each April, our students participate in the national French, Latin, and Spanish exams, which are taken by students across the country. We are thrilled to see our students thrive in learning various languages.
Today, we recognize all our students below who received honors.
BASIS Independent Schools students continue to score impressive admission to some of the world’s best colleges and universities. From the Washington, D.C. Metro Area and New York City to California, students across the BASIS Independent Schools network have proven that even in the face of adversity and adaptation, hard work and commitment can reap incredible results.
Though I have run the Admissions team since 2017, the Toddler Program was my first experience as a BIM Mom. And, it really laid the foundation for my son, Marcus, to love learning. Last week, I revisited the toddler classroom to showcase a day in the life of a toddler at BIM.
We are so proud of our Class of 2021 and honored to share their current list of college acceptances. Additional acceptances are still possible; however, this list is too good to wait.
Please join us in joyful congratulations for our soon-to-be-graduates. Their hard work, perseverance, creativity, curiosity, kindness, and spirit will carry them forward in college and beyond.
In March and April, students in primary, middle, and high school competed and were recognized in state science competitions.
Campus is buzzing with the energy that spring brings. Students, teachers, and staff are ready to complete a school year that has been anything but ordinary. On my agenda this week was to check-in with Amy Kimbrough, Dean of Grades 1-3. In this role, Ms. Kimbrough focuses on our student’s social-emotional development and academic needs. I found our conversation inspiring and would like to share it with you!
Considering our Primary Program? This will give you an insightful snapshot into BASIS Independent McLean. Here, we truly value our partnership with each family, and I have chosen some common questions that continue to be top of mind for many of our prospective families.
The show must go on! With our theater unavailable for the spring play because of COVID safety guidelines, our Drama Club had to get creative in order to still perform for a live audience this year. Our Drama Club is premiering a drive-through play on Friday, April 9 and Saturday, April 10. Audience members will view the performance from their cars as they drive from scene to scene in the parking lot.
I remember hitting submit for my last college application on January 5th, feeling such a relief I could go back to enjoying life. After 16 different applications that had deadlines spanning from November to January, I just could not wait for my immediate future to be decided by my application readers.
Inspired by the blissful feeling of uncovering connections, our blog Eureka! McLean is about sharing moments that capture the essence of what it is to be a BASIS Independent student, teacher, administrator, or family.
