Do teachers assign homework to their students?

In terms of home preparation, our general strategy is not to rely on parental support and to minimize the need for home preparation (homework). Too much home preparation creates an unequal field for children, as each parent has different qualifications and time availability and thus not all parents can dedicate an equal amount of time. Our school day is longer than in a traditional Czech school, so we assume that children will learn everything they need to in school. The program includes ample space to practice and experience the material being taught. Until approximately the 2nd grade, we do not contemplate assigning homework. We only consider optional homework for children who enjoy challenges. Beginning in 3rd grade, a certain amount of homework will be assigned. However, students will also have dedicated time during school hours to work on their homework with the support of their teachers. This is a common practice at BASIS schools in the US, resulting in a reduced necessity for homework preparation at home.

Program Goals
Our main goal is to educate students to the highest international levels with a spiraling liberal arts and sciences curriculum benchmarked to the best education systems in the world.
We rely on our passionate, expert teachers to develop a classroom culture that inspires students to think that learning is cool. We believe that trust and respect between teachers and students inspire this belief. We’re proud to be both unabashedly forward-thinking and unapologetically old fashioned. Our approach does not give in to the pressure of the latest trends. We focus on what works and what is proven when preparing our students today for what is to come tomorrow.
Opportunity is Defined in Global Terms
Today, we can no longer conceive of opportunity for the next generation as confined to a city, a state, or even a nation. We commit to teaching our students to the highest global standards so that they can succeed in the best universities in the world and compete in a global professional marketplace.
Accountability Drives Improvement
Our program has been committed, from its earliest days to the smart, network-wide use of performance data. We hold ourselves accountable to use the insights this data
provides to sustain and improve learning outcomes for our students.
Connection Leads to Mastery
Our path of study is connected from preschool to Senior Projects. Our curriculum is carefully calibrated so that in every discipline and at every grade level, students are appropriately challenged by their learning, and each year serves as a preparation for the challenges to come.
Mastery Empowers Excellence
We teach our students to achieve mastery of the foundational disciplines and competencies, for it is that mastery which will empower their future lives and careers. In our classrooms, bolstered by the unwavering support of the faculty, students will face demanding challenges and celebrate extraordinary victories as they learn and uphold excellence.
Perspective Creates Responsibility
In our school, diverse perspectives are tested in an environment of informed thought and collegiality. Students must be prepared to navigate the uncertainty of the 21st-century landscape with profound humility. By engaging with a variety of global perspectives, our students are empowered to make their own decisions about how they will navigate the world.
