Since 1985, Back to Basics Private School has offered a unique educational opportunity for students of all ages. With an unprecedented teacher-to-student ratio of 1:1, we foster a nurturing environment with hands-on teaching and testing methods, as well as careful matching of teaching and learning styles. The experienced, degreed instructors at this Department of Education-approved K-12 school will help determine your child’s strengths and non-strengths, increase confidence, boost self-esteem, and encourage a love of learning, resulting in academic success.

Students may enter at any time during a school year, and stay for one to three consecutive years, at which time they merge into a more traditional school setting or graduate from our school.
