The Senior BASIS DC High School is the District's top-performing charter school, according to annual D.C. Public Charter School Board rankings released this week.The Washington Post story
In 2012, BASIS Washington, D.C. opened as the first BASIS.ed-managed charter school outside of Arizona. Located in the heart of downtown D.C. near the National Portrait Gallery, the beautiful school serves grades 5–12 and mirrors the design of our nationally-ranked sister campuses, in both facility and in academic value. In August, PARCC scores showed 86% of BASIS DC high school students scored a 4 or 5 in Math.
This year, BASIS DC has launched the "Be More Than a Bystander" anti-bullying campaign. This campaign includes school-wide town hall discussions, an anti-bullying poster design competition, and special training and implementation of a Safe-Space program for select teachers.
BASIS DC looks forward to hosting its first commencement ceremony this year for the Class of 2017. In our nation's capital, BASIS Washington, D.C. provides an unparalleled educational community and only continues to flourish as part of the BASIS.ed network. Indeed, in annual rankings released by the D.C. Public Charter Board in November, 2016, BASIS Washington DC was the District's top-performing charter school - an immense honor for our school, and the entire network.
