BASIS Mesa has been a part of the Eastmark community since its founding in 2012 to serve grades 5–10 in the East Valley. Since then, BASIS Mesa has expanded its offerings, and also graduated its first senior class of eight students last year. BASIS Mesa now serves over 650 students across grades 3–12, and continues to grow.
As a growing school in an expanding community, BASIS Mesa has partnered with community members to create and implement a community character program for 2016. Every month during the school year highlights a student body-generated character trait and is celebrated with pep assemblies, spirit days, random acts of kindness, and beyond. The outcome of this program is to create a partnership between the teachers, staff, parents, students, and community members and for BASIS Mesa to be not just a school, but an important community center in east Mesa.
