The Bryan Allen Stevenson School of Excellence

The Bryan Allen Stevenson School of Excellence (BASSE) INC. is an emerging public charter secondary school in Sussex County, Delaware. Basse was founded on the life philosophy of Bryan Allen Stevenson, a native Delawarean, renowned lawyer, and social justice advocate, who frequently talks about the power of proximity as being essential in his journey. BASSE will be a free public service-learning high school in Sussex County opening with grades sixth and seventh, with a strong focus on academic rigor and social justice. Our deep belief is in our children and that they are our future; therefore they require deep investments in their learning both in the classroom and outside of the classroom. BASSE will provide a rigorous, interdisciplinary curriculum to support students in using their gained skills and knowledge to complete service projects in the community. Through collaborations with local community organizations, nonprofits, and service organizations, students will become proximate with the community's needs and develop novel solutions. BASSE aims to develop the capacity for leadership in the youth of Sussex County through the passion of learning, the joy of providing service, and the power of proximity.    Mission: To create pathways, through proximity, for our students, their families, and our community
