Félicitations! Gratulationes! Felicitaciones! More than 100 BASIS Independent McLean students received honors based on their performance on a 2019 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 over 100 BASIS Independent McLean students below who received honors.
Thank you to the dozens of student who entered a submission to our third annual Communications Journal (CJ) Art Contest. We will proudly display all the entries around the school.
We are happy to announce the winners of this year’s contest:
Students at BASIS Independent Schools know a thing or two about hard work and persistence in problem solving. Our accelerated and spiraled math curriculum gives students ample time to strengthen their fundamental skills so that each year, when our schools facilitate opportunities for students to participate in competitions, clubs, and more, they can then show off their talents and achieve new goals. This year’s math wins across several of our campuses are a testament of how well our students thrive in competitive situations.

It’s March Madness! No, BASIS Independent McLean doesn’t have a bracket, but our students have been in many tournaments, championships, and involved in other great ventures this month (and last!). They participated in a variety of in and out of school academic and athletic competitions, and we are thrilled to share the results here:

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.
