BASIS Chandler

BASIS Chandler

BASIS Chandler began the 2016–17 school year in a brand new two story facility. Having two floors affords the younger grades a dedicated downstairs space, while giving students in grades 8–12 the entire upper section of the building. Located across the street from BASIS Chandler Primary South, the new school has modernized science labs, a full-sized gymnasium, and is ideally positioned to meet the needs of current and future BASIS Chandler families for years to come.

Boosted by the impressive academic outcomes of the 2015–16 year, and the addition of a state-of-the-art building, BASIS Chandler looks forward to another year of achievement.
