BASIS Chandler Primary South Campus

BASIS Chandler Primary South Campus

The 2016–17 school year opened with many changes and renovations to the BASIS Chandler Primary South Campus facility. Over the summer, BASIS Chandler Primary South acquired a new front office, a bridge that now connects two of the three school buildings, and a large playground complete with turf and a concrete pad for basketball and other games. Additionally, the school administration moved to new offices, which afforded more space and improved workflow. Yet to come this year is a fourth building, which will house a real gymnasium and more classrooms.

One of the biggest accomplishments from the 2015–16 year at BASIS Chandler Primary South was student retention. Additionally, 88% of our 4th grade students advanced to BASIS Chandler for 5th grade and another small percentage went to other BASIS.ed-managed charter school campuses.
