Reading and writing are the building blocks of learning. When students have a strong foundation in language and literacy, it opens up the door to academic and professional success. It also helps them expand their worldview, appreciate different perspectives, and communicate effectively with others—essential skills in today’s global market. At BASIS Charter Schools, we understand the importance of providing students with an internationally competitive education that will prepare them for future success.
