A Brief History of BASIS Curriculum Schools

What happens when best practices from top education systems in the world—places like Singapore, Finland, and Shanghai—are infused with the creativity and spirit that defines American education? That’s what BASIS Curriculum Schools co-founders sought to answer after Dr. Michael Block discovered that students in his university classroom who were educated abroad were more prepared to excel in their studies, and when his wife, Olga Block couldn’t find a high school program in the U.S. for her daughter that matched the content depth of her own education from Eastern Europe. In 1998, they opened their first school in Tucson, Arizona. More than thirty-seven campuses and twenty-four thousand students later, BASIS Curriculum Schools is looked to as the gold standard in preparing students with the content knowledge, critical thinking, and creative problem solving skills needed to be successful in an increasingly complex world.
