At BASIS Independent Manhattan, our content-rich curriculum is complemented by plenty of opportunities for students to see ideas in action—both in and out of the classroom. We delight in giving students the opportunity to deepen their understanding of material and how it relates to the world around them, as well as explore problems from new angles.

Hands-on work and projects are present in all grades and subjects, especially through our primary Connections course and Project Week, but we take special care to allow students to learn through doing outside the four walls of their classroom. As a private school in New York City, our students are offered limitless opportunities to see coursework through a different lens.
