My son is going on his third year and plans to graduate here as he gets excellent grades, enjoys his teachers and classes. The counselors are great as well. The school seems to strive to success. The IB is a great program too and the AP classes. My son is in both and loves that he is getting college ready already!

All of the reviews except one are from 2015 or older. This is a great school still saddled down by a poor reputation from the past. This school really started turning it around the 2015-2016 school year. This school has taken off since with an influx of IB teachers from other schools and young hires. It's a magnet school now for IB. It's hard to have such a great environemnt and set of teachers for a low income school, but Basic Academy is is doing it.

Currently in the school writing this. i came in today to see the whole school covered in Red-solo cups and toilet paper. The other day people were popping off stink bombs. The hall monitors will stop you if you are wearing a hat, but apparently a beanie is fine? The teachers are all giving projects at the time of finals. We don't even know what's on our finals! All i learned in honors English 9 was how to help the community. the only class i learned in and enjoyed was algebra 1. The CCSD is so confused, it's just falling apart.

Th worst school if you wanna talk to your counselor. Also if you are ever so different by the slightest people thing you're from another planet this school is so super white washed. If very to little diversity. only a handful of great teachers and students. Overall, ok school to go to but would I ever send my Kid here in the future.... NOPE.
