Burke Basic School is a Mesa Arizona Charter School dedicated to providing a learning environment that will improve pupil achievement in the basic skills. Our commitment is to have a teacher in every classroom who cares that every student learns, grows, and experiences success every day. We take responsibility for and are accountable for the progress of each student. Most of our students move two grade levels per year in reading, spelling and math.

The original 1836 version of the fabled reading instruction books which for three-quarters of a century were used by four-fifths of all American school children.
We have an intensive, “phonics first” reading program, beginning in kindergarten.
Explicit and systematic instruction refers to the direct teaching of academic concepts and skills in a clearly defined sequence designed to grow over the course of the year and from grade to grade.
“My child likes participating with the flag in morning assembly. I like the way my children feel included in their school”

“The teachers actually teach. I love that my daughter gets personal help and attention.”
“I love the uniforms and academic difficulty. My child is learning harder work than kids in public school.”
