One of the newest charter schools to the BASIS.ed network, BASIS Chandler Primary North opened in August 2016 to 539 students in grades K–4. It is the sister school to BASIS Chandler Primary South and will feed students into the established BASIS Chandler for grades 5–12. We expect the same success and excellence from students and faculty at BASIS Chandler Primary North as we see in all BASIS.edmanaged charter schools. Prior to the 2016–17 school year, the BASIS Chandler Primary North Campus building was renovated to prepare for the incoming primary students. The school added three new playgrounds—including an indoor imagination playground—larger classrooms, bathrooms in each Kindergarten room, and a health office. To support the K–4 students at this beautiful new facility, BASIS Chandler Primary North hired 62 new teachers and staff. This spacious building allows for differentiation, pull-out groups, and individualized attention to prepare students for the high academic expectations of BASIS students in grades 5–12.
