BASIS Independent Schools set the pace of global education
When journalists describe U.S. students as academically “behind” other countries or that Singapore has one of the best education systems in the world, they are often referring to performance on the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA), an exam given to students to evaluate critical thinking and application of knowledge in math, reading, and science. In order to evaluate our students’ performance in comparison to these high-performing countries, BASIS Independent utilizes the OECD Test for Schools, which is based on PISA.
Student performance on the OECD is a point of great pride for our schools. It speaks to the power of our program and the dedication of our teachers. Our schools are helping shape the future of education as our students build lasting bonds with teachers, learn at the highest international levels, and become active, contributing members of their communities.
