BASIS San Antonio Medical Center is currently one of the top public schools in all of Texas, with just over 750 students across grades 5–11. We are proud of the incredible strides this school has made in the few short years it has been open and look forward to the achievements to come.
BASIS San Antonio Medical Center has seen tremendous academic growth over the last year. Each teacher on campus is committed to the goal of going from good to great. Part of that goal is to understand that to be a teacher requires self-reflection, accountability, and willingness to improve oneself every day. The culture of the school has shifted and is a robust center of fresh ideas, motivated professionals, and aspiring scholars.
