The BASIS Curriculum Schools network is known for being among the best in the world. Now the network is bringing even more innovation to one of its charter school campuses in Arizona. BASIS Phoenix Central, which serves grades K-5, will introduce an innovative Arts Element program beginning in the 2019-2020 school year.
Research done by the National Assembly of State Arts Agencies shows that education in the arts helps students develop fine motor skills, critical thinking skills, and self-expression, and increases brain connectivity. By partnering the Arts Element program with the well-known, high-achieving, standard primary BASIS Curriculum, BASIS Phoenix Central students will have the unique opportunity to study more art disciplines with a deeper level of art instruction enhanced by guest artists, field trips, and access to the fine arts community in Phoenix.
