A message from BASIS.ed CEO, Dr. Peter BezansonPeter_Bezanson-head_shot.jpg

At BASIS.ed, we believe in higher, not lower expectations, and more, not less focus on achievement. We know that knowledge is good in and of itself, and that the things worth knowing don't come easily. Knowledge, we have learned, is for the brain what exercise is for the body — and the more you know, the easier it is to master new things, to continue learning, to keep growing. It might be hard work, but the rewards are well worth it. We understand this, and we think that you understand this, too.

We also understand that innovation — the cornerstone of growth and leadership in the global economy — comes from a desire to discover the old-fashioned way. Our teachers spend their entire adult lives studying their chosen subject fields because they are passionate about the material. It is this passion that is contagious in BASIS.ed classrooms, encouraging children to question, to investigate and ultimately to fully understand. Inspired teachers ignite the fire for lifelong learning.

Our focus at BASIS.ed is on what really matters in education. We ignore the fads and quick fixes. We teach children not to avoid the hard work and challenges, but to embrace them. It's actually a rather simple formula, and as we say, what we do is not rocket science, although we study rocket science. You know what truly matters for your child's education. We do, too. That is why BASIS.ed is now the standard of educational achievement across the country and around the world.
