    "This is my 4th year as a bear and I have been completely satisfied with the school.From pep assemblies to football games I'm always having a blast. As for the cheer/Pom team, that I've been on for 3 years, is nothing like the comment below. The coach is amazing and does not prioritize winning. After getting the ONLY back to back state rings Basha has seen, it was taken away from us this past year. As for the coach he is very proud of us and he cant stress that enough to us. We work ourselves to the limit because it's what we love to do, winning is what WE strive for NOT what he expects. As for paying to be on the team, it is very cheap compared to any all star team or dance studio that DOES (coming from an experienced studio dancer that quit to join school activities) rob you of your money. He is the best coach ive ever had, and as for the person below who knows nothing about our team, watch our competition videos on youtube and tell me that each student doesnt want to be on the team WINNING. We love what we do regardless, and you can tell in our faces when we kill our routines that he has put every ounce of love into. Go Bears!"

    "Initially, we were pleased with Basha's apparent commitment to academics, however, many wonderful teachers have left this past year due to lack of administrative support and district budget cuts. The administration and athletic department doesn't resolve parent complaints about the cheer/pom program. They allow the coach to be financially irresponsible, rude and crass, fleece the parents of their money, and put students at risk for injury. Competition is prioritized rather than promoting school spirit and supporting other athletic programs. There appears to be a complete lack of supervision and disregard for the head coach's conduct; berating is not coaching. I would not recommend any parent allowing their child to participate in the cheer/pom program as it is the antithesis of what a true spirit line should be."

    "So far so good! Considering my kid just started at Basha High this year I'm pretty pleased with the school and stuff overall! My kid is thriving and happy to be there. What more can a parent ask for?"

    "We came to Basha from a similarly ranked public high school in Montana. One daughter graduated from Basha in 2013; another will in 2015. Compared to the Montana high school, from which our eldest daughter graduated, I would say that Basha is a good school. The principal and teachers are very easy to communicate with. Some teachers are fantastic--smart, dedicated, loved by students, effective--and others are not. (It's a shame students can't publicly rate their teachers!) The student body is a mix of dedicated scholars and students who are there because they have to be. Basha offers a huge selection of AP classes and electives. Great field trips too! Chicago (band), Catalina Island (AP biology), Disneyland (orchestra), etc. What do students think? After listening to my own child (she's in all AP and honors classes and has a 4.3 gpa.) complain about teachers, students or homework, I have offered many times to take her out of Basha and enroll her at BASIS but she declines every time. :)"

    "I've gone to basha for 2 years now and I think it is one of the best high schools in arizona! The teachers are really cool and there are lots of classes for peoples different interests. The sports and band are very successful also. For the most part the students are really nice too. The administration isn't too strict but they do enforce the rules which is good"
