BASIS Schools will celebrate the opening of a new campus in Chandler tomorrow with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at which Gov. Jan Brewer will speak.
The BASIS Chandler campus will offer a rigorous curriculum for fifth through 10th grade students this August, expanding to fifth through 12th grades by the fall of 2013.
BASIS has been operating charter schools in Arizona for a decade. The school’s first two campuses opened in Tucson and Scottsdale, and both have received top national rankings by such publications as Newsweek, BusinessWeek, US News and World Report, and the Washington Post. A third campus in Oro Valley opened last year.
The ceremony commences at 9 a.m., and will take place at the new campus, located at 1800 E. Chandler Boulevard.
Seating is limited, so RSVPs are required for the event. To reserve a seat, call 480-289-2088 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. — Sadie Smeck
