With prosecution and defense teams, they use Gareth Hinds' graphic novel to explore evidence and themes, honing critical thinking and communication. The journey ends in a courtroom trial with various roles. Witness their remarkable skills!

BASIS Ahwatukee’s art classes journeyed through indigenous art and traditions, learning about local Arizona tribes and their art, specifically the Guna tribe's reverse applique method to create Molas. Each student's Mola creation symbolizes their individuality while honoring tradition.


We received the AP School Honor Roll with the Platinum level of distinction ! ✨

The AP School Honor Roll recognizes schools whose AP programs are delivering results for students while broadening access. Schools can earn this recognition annually based on criteria that reflect a commitment to increasing college-going culture, providing opportunities for students to earn college credit, and maximizing college readiness. The AP School Honor Roll offers four levels of distinction: Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum.

Thank you to our teachers, administrators, and students for working so hard! 👏👏

A big thank you to the BASIS Ahwatukee Boosters for organizing the first Mustang Stampede. We appreciate all the parents, students, and alumni who volunteered to make the evening a big success.

International Dot Day is celebrated by both adults and children all around the world as a way of boosting confidence and encouraging creativity. Through observing this holiday, people can learn the power of creativity and how just one small dot can make a huge impact on the world around them. The students in Mrs. Sandala's classes celebrated by placing dots all over the school as a form of Guerrilla Art. Guerrilla Art is unannounced, anonymous, and most often unauthorized artwork that is displayed in public spaces intended to create an awareness. It's focused on cause and effect, not the material piece itself.

We were very lucky to have former students and the Mustang mascot stop by the Stampede to volunteer. Thank you for making this fun event successful!
