What if you could sit in on a class before you enrolled your child in a new school and experience the teachers, subjects and classrooms in person?

You can do just that during BASIS Independent Manhattan’s Open House on Jan. 20 at 10 a.m. The new PreK–8 private school, located on the Upper West Side, inspires students to learn at the highest international levels, all while discovering and honing their own passions and interests. An Open House at BASIS Independent Manhattan offers prospective parents the chance to experience firsthand what makes the school so successful—from the joyful learning culture to the high-energy classrooms to the visionary teachers. The Open House will cover the following topics:

  • The unique two-teacher LET/SET model. BASIS Independent Manhattan employs a Learning Expert Teacher (LET) and a Subject Expert Teacher (SET) in every classroom—one to guide students from class to class and assess individual needs and one to lead the classroom with expertise in curriculum. These instructors work together to support the social, emotional and academic needs of every student.
  • The internationally-benchmarked curriculum built from global best practices. The results of such a gold-standard program means students are outperforming not just the schools in the city and state, but schools all over the world in math, reading, and science.
  • The core community values evident in every hallway, classroom and student. At BASIS Independent Manhattan, it’s all about the 5 C’s (confidence, creativity, citizenship, courage and compassion). Every month, the school celebrates one of the 5 C’s, allowing both students and faculty to nominate those around them who display the highlighted value.

These are just a few things families can look forward to experiencing and learning more about at this immersive event! BASIS Independent Manhattan is now accepting applications for the upcoming 2018–2019 school year. The deadline for regular admissions is January 24!
