BASIS Curriculum School 15-year-olds have continued to lead their peers globally for competencies in math, reading, and science according to the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA run by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).

Out of 79 participating education systems from different countries, BASIS students continue to lead their peers globally, such as China, which was represented by four provinces (Beijing, Shanghai, Jiangsu, and Zhejiang), Singapore, Japan, United Kingdom, United States, and others. Current results compared with the most recent OECD exam taken in 2018 show that BASIS students continue to lead their peers globally in math, reading, and science. They are developing critical skills, such as analyzing, reasoning, and communicating ideas, to ensure their success in college and beyond.

BASIS Students also ranked top in Reading, Mathematics, and Science

The results of the OECD Test for Schools (based on PISA) are one metric that demonstrates the effectiveness of BASIS Curriculum Schools. The combination of a rigorous, internationally benchmarked curriculum, Subject Expert Teachers who have a degree of autonomy in the classroom, and a supportive school culture provides an educational environment where any motivated student can and does excel.  BASIS students repeatedly demonstrate competencies that would enable them to navigate the challenges of the future.

BASIS Independent Schools Senior Vice President, Carolyn McGarvey, expressed, “What the results show and why it matters is that BASIS Curriculum Schools students take the lead in developing critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Skills that require the application of deep content knowledge across disciplines to create innovations and solve complex challenges, all the while making significant contributions. Our students are prepared to excel in college and beyond.”
