At BASIS Independent Schools, we strive to provide families, fellow educators, and anyone who is curious, with ample opportunities to learn more about who we are, why we do what we do, what it results in, and why it matters.
We are, after all, a fairly unique family of schools. With different types of BASIS.ed-managed schools all around the country, you might not know where to "start" in your search for information. Though many of us are far away from one another, we are united by the common threads of an unparalleled curriculum in both breadth and depth, and a culture driven by our insatiable desire - as students and educators - to constantly grow, improve, and be the best version of ourselves we can be.
Vectors, a BASIS.ed news site, goes beyond the reaches of our school blog, Eureka! McLean to provide to you a window into what it means to be united by these common threads. It is a window into what is going on in and around BASIS.ed-managed schools and students throughout the country (and world!). Take a minute to visit Vectors and subscribe to receive their posts fresh in your inbox.
On the last day of each month, we will send out a recap of some of the top posts for the month. Today marks the first-ever recap. Happy reading, subscribe to Vectors (so you don't have to wait until the last day of the month!).
