Principal's Message

Andrew Cronk's Staff Portrait


Everyday I come to work with a sense of joy. It is such an honor and privilege to be the principal of BASE. Throughout these hallways and classrooms you and your children will find teachers who are both talented and passionate about their craft. You’ll find a rich tapestry of Expeditionary Learning philosophies, AVID strategies, and Project Lead the Way curriculum woven throughout the school. Combined with our unique internship program, strong College and Career Readiness focus, and the personal relationships in formed in Crew - ours tudents graduate well-equipped to pursue their dreams.

Expeditionary Learning has a maxim:

We are not passengers on this journey. We are CREW!

You'll find a sense of community here and strong focus on health, science, and engineering. You'll find a learning environment were it is safe to make mistakes and learn from them. You'll find a staff who values character development as highly as the acquisition of knowledge and skills. Mostly of all you'll find a place that embraces learners from all walks of life. I encourage you to browse through these pages to learn more about what makes the Beaverton Academy of Science and Engineering unique. Join us at our Open Houses and consider participating in a student preview day. We look forward to meeting you!

Best Regards,
Andrew Cronk
