Re: “A Very Frightening Story From BASIS San Antonio

My son is a second grader at BASIS Tucson and we couldn't be happier with the school. The homework doesn't seem to be extreme since my son typically finishes most of it while he is at the afterschool program. The aftershool program allows the kids a quiet place to study if they want before going out to play. Its a nice change from the previous public school he attended where the afterschool program had the kids to sit around and play video games for hours. He also gets more physical activity than at his previous school where PE was only offered two days a week. At the BASIS elementary he has PE every day. Also far more exposure to arts and humanities than in his previous school. He is also learning Mandarin which he loves, and I think learning a second language- any language, early when it is easiest to learn, should be an opportunity available in all elementary schools but seems to be a priority for almost no TUSD school besides Davis. I agree that BASIS isn't the perfect fit for every kid - we were told that if our kid doesn't like to read he probably won't like BASIS. Luckily he loves to read and tells me he loves everything about the school. I don't know anything about what the staff is like for other BASIS schools, but we found the teachers at BASIS Tucson to be incredibly caring and responsive to even the smallest of concerns.
