What does it mean to prepare students to succeed in any challenge?
One revolutionary school in Northern Virginia sets out to answer this question through their comprehensive liberal arts and sciences program, which is benchmarked to the best educational systems in the world.
BASIS Independent McLean, a PreK-12 private school located in Tysons Corner, focuses on preparing students with the content knowledge and critical thinking skills necessary for success in an ever-changing world.
The Northern Virginia campus was opened in 2016 and is part of the lauded BASIS Curriculum Schools network, which includes six out the 10 top-ranked schools in the country, according to U.S News & World Report.
Centered on the belief that students can do more than what is typically expected of them, BASIS Independent McLean challenges students to reach the highest international levels and holds them accountable for mastering a wide breadth of subject material.
Each discipline is taught by passionate subject experts who have professional expertise or advanced degrees in their chosen field, and who help students become excellent problem solvers poised to confidently tackle whatever comes their way.
“Our school really stretches students’ expectations and requires them to strive for achievements that they previously didn’t think they could achieve,” says Mr. Sharp, English Subject Expert Teacher at BASIS Independent McLean.
In just two years as an established learning community, the school has already made an impact on the educational landscape, winning two state MATHCOUNTS competitions and participating in various national and state events, including the Washington National Youth Music Competition, Model UN and National History Bowl, just to name a few!
