CICS Basil prepares all students to succeed in college through academic excellence and the content of their character. This begins in Kindergarten. Our rigorous, engaging curriculum builds the skills students need to choose a future that will be fulfilling: a strong knowledge base; the ability to read, write, calculate, and problem-solve well; and the ability to think well. Academics come first at Basil.

  • Longer school day and school year, providing more time to focus on academic achievement
  • High value placed on student character development and school virtues of respect, diligence, perseverance, compassion, integrity, and grit.

Understanding Outcomes

  • The Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA) measures the percent of individual students
    meeting and/or exceeding set growth targets based on normative data.
    • NWEA measures of 50-70% of students meeting their individual growth targets are considered above average
    • NWEA measures greater than 70% of students meeting their individual growth target are considered exemplary
  • Growth index measures the amount of points on NWEA’s scale in which a student or group
    is above or below typical growth.
