Principal's Message

Diane fitzpatrick

Welcome to BASE!

It is with joy and excitement that I have the privilege to serve the BASE community as the principal. BASE is an incredible place to explore, learn and grow as a human being. Students and staff are learners at BASE. We combine EL Education, AVID, and Project Lead the Way to lead students through their education journey. Our students experience Crew every day, which forms the foundation of building positive relationships and equips students with social and emotional learning supports, self advocacy skills, and a network of peers that work together to row the boat throughout their time here. BASE is proud of our unique internship program and strong College and Career Readiness focus through our three CTE Pathways: Biomedical Sciences, Computer Science, and Engineering. BASE graduates are well-equipped to pursue their dreams post-high school.

Expeditionary Learning has a maxim: We are not passengers on this journey. We are CREW!

BASE prides itself on our sense of community. As part of the EL Education and PLTW focus, students find a learning environment where it is safe to explore, make mistakes and learn from them. The BASE staff values character development equally to the acquisition of content knowledge and skills. First and foremost, students will experience a supportive community that celebrates and embraces diversity. We celebrate the learning process that culminates in Passages at the end of each school year where senior students present their work and educational journey to a panel. Yearly, our capstone students in our Pathways have the opportunity to showcase their work ~ a favorite experience of many in our community. Please join us at one of our Open Houses and consider participating in a student preview day.

We look forward to meeting you!
