• Education: BASIS Independent Brooklyn

    The scoop on the new BASIS school opening soon in Brooklyn.

    By Mia Weber

    BASIS, the manager behind some of the most successful schools in the country, including two of the top five high schools in U.S. News & World Report’s annual rankings, is coming to the city in a big way. BASIS is opening an independent school—with tuition nearly half that of some of the city’s most established private schools! Slated to open in September 2014 in Red Hook, BASIS Independent Brooklyn is now accepting applications for grades K-10 (as they grow into K-12). BASIS is noted for their STEM-focused liberal arts and science curriculum, though the younger grades bring in elements of a Montessori approach. BASIS will provide bus and water taxi service to their new Brooklyn outpost. basisindependentbrooklyn.com
