Editor’s note: When charter schools were created in Arizona two decades ago, they were envisioned to be unique models in which the most successful could be replicated. BASIS Charter Schools, with 17 schools in Arizona, two in Texas and one in Washington, D.C., are among the most highly acclaimed in the country. The Scottsdale campus is ranked No. 2 in the nation among high schools by U.S. News and World Report. We invited the leadership at BASIS to describe in 10 bullet points what makes BASIS successful.

We expect parents’ support

Many of the people who work for BASIS charter schools are parents just like many of you. Our schools were founded out of the simple parental hope — shared across the nation and around the world — that we could provide a world-class education for our own kids and the rest of the kids in our cities. Indeed, our founders were looking at schooling options for their youngest daughter when the first BASIS school opened in Tucson in 1998.
