BASIS Independent Brooklyn is a PreK–12 private school that fuels creativity, ingenuity, and
independence from day one! Part of a world-class network of schools, BASIS Independent Brooklyn offers a global education for the next generation of leaders. Join us for an upcoming Open House this October to explore our program, offerings, and school community.

Here’s what you can expect to learn at an Open House:

1) Our curriculum is globally benchmarked.
The BASIS Curriculum blends the top education systems worldwide. Founded on creativity and
innovation and powered by traditional academics, is designed to inspire students to learn at the
highest international levels!

2) Our spiraling program is rooted in the liberal arts and STEM.
Students at BASIS Independent Brooklyn engage in Mandarin, accelerated mathematics, humanities, art, music, the sciences, and much more. From day one, key concepts are “spiraled” to help students to master topics and make connections across diverse subject matter, enabling them to build autonomy, problem-solving, and critical-thinking skills along the way.

3) Subject Expert Teachers teach every course.
At the helm of our ever classroom is a Subject Expert Teacher who uses their passion and expertise in their chosen discipline to bring content to life and empower students’ full potential. In grades 1–4, we employ a two-teacher model with a Learning Expert Teacher who remains with students throughout the day and ensures additional support and consistency.

4) A joyful learning culture is at our school’s core. Our teachers and staff alike are committed to fostering a joyful learning culture where hard work is celebrated and intellectual pursuits results in extraordinary outcomes. When school is somewhere students feel confident, independent, and encouraged, they love to learn; and when students love
to learn, they excel.

5) Our new Lower School campus on Gold street is open!
In response to the growing demand for our program, BASIS Independent Brooklyn has expanded to a second campus on Gold Street in Downtown Brooklyn that serves students in PreK–grade 2. The new, state-of-the-art facility is thoughtfully designed to welcome young learners to the BASIS Independent Brooklyn curriculum and community. Our flagship campus in Red Hook will continue to be home to students in grades 3–12.
