    "Frequent fights between students, multiple inept teachers, IB program has been implemented and encouraged students to explore career paths"

    "I am from class of 2020 and at this school, it's an amazing school with amazing clubs and teachers/staff as well. This years experience has been unexpected in a good way. We recently had our principle replaced with an amazing person who's gotten involved and helped many of our programs and clubs such as our MCJROTC program ,that I myself am part of, and he has even donated money. Most students do get along with some teachers/staff to the point that you can say "they are friends" of course with out passing the guidelines of the districts rules. Also, as an IB learning school,students do grow from what we learn.This is one of the places where i can truly be my self and study what i love with help of an amazing staff or teachers and helpers. that's my experience at Basic High School. Alondra S. Montenegro"

    "This is an Amazing School! 2 of my kids were accepted and graduated from Point Loma University in San Diego in engineering and have jobs. My third kid has been accepted to Coast Guard Academy to be an officer. My brother-in-law went to the US Air Force Academy, Basic grad. There are other students I have met who have received either full ride scholarships to or accepted to prestigious schools like Harvard, Duke, Colorado School of Mines, UNLV, SUU and many other schools. Some of our top leaders in The State and local Industries of Nevada have graduated from Basic Academy. Greatness, has shown through 1st in State for Baseball X2 years, 1st in Country for ROTC X14 yrs, Top honors in Band, Orchestra, Drama, Football, Track and the list goes on. My daughter's Valedictorian speech sums it up best; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kJd9mXmDV7Q&t=114s Don't be caught up in the "New is Better" High School mentality, as Basic Academy is Southern Nevada's best kept secret!"

    "I graduated from Basic in '94, so my opinion of Basic wouldn't apply to the way things are run today. I can only hope that the quality of teachers has improved, that school events and activities are planned and arranged by more than just the white, elitist Mormon kids; and, that cultural diversity has become an invaluable idea to the adminstration."

    "Basic is a school that you grow up at and is very comfortable and at home. What could improve is the building itself because it's been a school since the 1950's, but they are still very up to date."
