BASIS Peoria

BASIS Peoria

Located west of Phoenix, BASIS Peoria is one of the most established BASIS.ed-managed charter schools in the network and, in 2017, received its first national ranking as a "Top-performing U.S. School with Elite Students" by The Washington Post.

In 2016, BASIS Peoria replaced its turf with a state-of-the-art, re-graded turf field, an update that wouldn’t have been possible without the BASIS Peoria Boosters’ fundraising efforts. Now, the green blades are a beautiful sight against the repainted bright yellow beams that hold up the outdoor awning. BASIS Peoria Boosters plan events that serve the entire school community year round. From dances, to teacher appreciation lunches, to partnering with restaurants in the area that have graciously agreed to donate a percentage of proceeds right back into the school, BASIS Peoria Boosters are working hard to make sure every year is the best year yet.
