BASIS Oro Valley

BASIS Oro Valley

Located just north of Tucson, Arizona, BASIS Oro Valley is in its seventh year and serves close to 600 students in grades 6–12. BASIS Oro Valley was the third BASIS.ed-managed charter school to open, following sister schools BASIS Tucson North and BASIS Scottsdale, and is consistently ranked as one of the top 10 high school programs in the country.

Since first opening in 2014, BASIS Oro Valley Primary has been a force to be reckoned with. Every day, students are engaged in hands-on, dynamic lessons that connect real-world issues and ideas and they never cease to amaze us with their hard work and enthusiasm. Furthermore, the school emphasizes tolerance and understanding by holding lessons in kindness each grading period, and faculty and staff lead by example to instill the school’s foundational values into every aspect of the day.
