In preparation of the opening of BASIS Independent McLean, (which is Tysons Corner’s first prek-12th grade school), Basis.ed’s co-founder Michael Block will speak at an introductory session on Mon., Feb. 22 at the Sheraton Tysons Hotel at 7 p.m., located at 8661 Leesburg Pike in Vienna, Va. The Washington Post recently ranked BASIS Oro Valley in Arizona the number one most challenging high school in America and now that  private school model is coming to McLean, Va.

Block was recognized not only as a top educator by Noodle, an education website helping parents and students make better decisions about learning, but Noodle also noted Block for ‘creating educational institutions that combined the rigors of Asian and European schooling with the American system’s emphasis on creativity and originality.’

School registration is underway for Tyson Corner’s new school, BASIS Independent McLean. The school will be located at 8000 Jones Branch Drive in McLean, Va.

“We’re thrilled to bring BASIS Independent to Tysons Corner, the heart of so much growth, innovation and progress in Northern Virginia,” said Michael Block, co-founder of BASIS.ed and BASIS Independent McLean, Va.
