The BASIS International Middle School curriculum (Grades 5 through 8) is designed to help students develop academic and organizational skills that will prepare them for the demanding BASIS High School curriculum. Whereas the Primary School program is taught in integrated 85-minute blocks, Middle School students move classes and subjects every 50 minutes, which presents an exciting challenge for students.
Organizational skills, time management and self-control are not innate which is why the Middle School curriculum has been designed in such a way to enable students to build and refine these skills. Our curriculum in these grades is one of the most advanced Middle School programs available in the world, fully integrating the sciences, arts, math, language, reading and critical thinking. By the end of Middle School, students have the ability to synthesize information across subject matter and are prepared for the rigor of the High School curriculum.
