It seems that U of A is aggressively recruiting people. We got an offer earlier this month and are still negotiating the contract. My biggest concern is education. I know BASIS is good, University High and Catalina Foothills High are also good. I heard that University High has admission exams.

My question is how hard is it to get into BASIS? My son is a 2nd grader. I know I have a couple of years but I would like to get a sense of what to expect. I am interested in BASIS because it starts from the 5th grade rather than high school. I visited the school website but the admission policy is pretty vague. It is theoretically open to everyone but I believe tons of kids apply every year. What are other factors that could help with admission?

If chances for getting in are good, we would consider living nearby rather than in the Foothills area. I would really appreciate any insight!!!
