BASIS Tucson North (originally BASIS Tucson) opened in 1998 as the first BASIS.ed-managed charter school and now has the largest student population in the entire BASIS.ed network. We are the network’s flagship high school with some of the most veteran BASIS.ed teachers, but the BASIS Tucson North community is constantly evolving. This year, the school has launched several initiatives to engage students, parents, teachers, and staff in the spirit of learning, community-building, and service.
Building a sense of community within each BASIS Tucson North grade level was a main focus for the 2016-17 school year. Teachers planned social events to not only help students connect with other students, but to also encourage parents to connect with one another. We also begun coordinating monthly community service opportunities for families to serve others, both within and outside the school community.
