The private school redefining education arrives in Bothell

Discover a learning community where intellectual curiosity drives student success, where interdisciplinary instruction meets experiential learning, and where students are inspired to learn at the highest international levels.

Introducing BASIS Independent Bothell, the latest addition to the BASIS Independent Schools network, set to open fall 2025.

The Kindergarten to Grade 12 private school is grounded in the belief that children today need more than what a traditional education offers. And they have a unique approach – perfected and optimized over 25 years – to ensure their students can achieve their full potential.

A global approach to education

The nationally recognized BASIS Curriculum has built its esteemed reputation by blending top educational system practices from around the world, infused with the spirit of American ingenuity and invention.

It’s founded on creativity and innovation powered by traditional academics. The curriculum is designed to inspire students to learn at the highest academic standards with an overarching focus on fostering student achievement that exceeds global benchmarks.

The program is rooted in the liberal arts and STEM – featuring world languages, advanced mathematics, Humanities, fine arts, the sciences and more. It’s successful at teaching this wide breadth of disciplines to students in large part due to its spiraling structure. This means key concepts and skills are “spiraled,” or intentionally developed, from kindergarten through high school, culminating in Advanced Placement® (AP) courses, and beyond. As students progress, the connections they make across subjects enable knowledge building to turn into knowledge application, which creates even greater facility and engagement in learning and mastering new concepts.

The school’s global lens, combined with this structure of advancing and reinforcing content, encourages students to become active participants, not just spectators, in their education and far beyond.

True subject experts teach every course

At BASIS Independent Bothell, the best technology in the classroom is the teacher. In the BASIS Curriculum, educators are known as Subject Expert Teachers. They are true experts in their chosen discipline, be it Calculus, Latin, performing arts, engineering, literature, or physics, with real-world experience and/or advanced degrees.

This global best practice expands to a distinctive two-teacher model from Kindergarten through Grade 4. This co-teaching model is designed to enable differentiated learning while providing consistency and support for each student.

A focus on the whole child

While the BASIS Curriculum provides the foundation for disciplinary knowledge, the school is equally focused on fueling critical thinking, problem-solving, autonomy and creativity. At the program’s core lies a joyful learning culture where hard work is celebrated and intellectual pursuits result in extraordinary outcomes. A robust offering of clubs, sports and athletics options provide ample opportunities for students beyond the classroom.
