As BASIS DC
prepares to open their new school on August 27, in Ward 2, the school is abuzz with putting the finishing touches on their new digs at 412 8th Street, NW. The school plans to offer what it describes as a rigorous liberal arts college preparatory education to DC middle and high school students.
"I hope students leave the first day wanting to come back for more," said Principal Paul Morrissey.
Morrisey said that students from all over the city have enrolled in grades 5-8 (the school plans to eventually expand to 12th grade). Morrisey said this summer BASIS DC is offering early start programs to help students get a head start. One program offers extra help with math and reading and the other helps students with organization skills such as note taking and study habits.
