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.
