We are a brand new charter school in the the BASIS Ed. system. We were unable to secure a start up grant for new charters in our state so our funds are extremely limited and many teachers are having to provide supplies out of pocket. Two of the schools in the BSI system have received national ranking. Students begin their science studies of biology, chemistry, and physics in the 6th grade and continue each year with broader and deeper coverage each year until they are prepared to take the AP exam in their 10th grade.

Each of our teachers in the subjects mentioned bring a great deal of expertise to the classroom, (engineering, molecular and cellular biology, biochemistry, biotechnology) and are committed to preparing the students for a successful college career. We just don't have the equipment to do the above and beyond we each wish to do.
