The curriculum for grades 5-7 is designed to help students develop academic and organizational skills that will prepare them for the demanding BASIS Independent grades 8-12 curriculum. We recognize that the abilities to organize time, manage and control oneself are not innate: we must all learn these skills. Our middle school teachers focus on this every day and aim to fine-tune these intrinsic skills.
In a very real sense, the BASIS Independent grades 5-7 curriculum is the key to the success of the BASIS Independent grades 8-12 program. By introducing high-level content standards here, we ensure students are exposed to these concepts early and often and have mastered the material by the time they enroll in Honors and AP-level courses. Our curriculum in these grades is designed to provide one of the most advanced private middle school programs available in the world.
By the end of 7th grade, students delve deep into the importance of organization and time management, so that they can easily conquer the advanced curriculum they will experience after.
