Re: “A Very Frightening Story From BASIS San Antonio

I have two children who attend Basis San Antonio as 6th graders. A large majority of children who go to this school are transfers from NISD, one of the largest school districts in Texas. Yes, it is a huge adjustment going to a school that actually gives out homework And children have to study fail to maintain good grades. None of this was ever hidden from us. At orientation the head of the school told us to expect 3 hours of homework a night while students adjust. They emphasized that children are learning to be responsible for their own education and what you put in is what you will get for it. my daughters love their teachers and have learned more in half a year than years in public school and I'm Sure they will continue to do so. Have we made sacrifices? Yes. Parents need to realize that there will be breakdowns and tears of frustrations but that just makes the successes that much greater.
I'm also deeply disturbed that someone said no one cared that his son was ill and did nothing. No there is no nurse but children have free access at all times to telephones thrughtout the school. If a child is not feeling well they do not send Them back to class bUT contact the parent. The children are taught to be responsible and to make their own decisions on if they are capable of staying in class the rest of the day. these are preteens and teenagers capable of making their own decisions not toddlerS. I feel that most often people only look for horror stories of parents who want someone else to blame for their child's and their own shortcomings or unwillingness to put in the work and dedication required.
