Our transitional kindergarten through kindergarten program is carefully designed to encourage a child’s natural tendencies to question, to create, and to discover. This is where we lay a solid foundation for academic success.
Led by a Subject Expert Teacher and a Learning Expert Teacher in most classes, grades 1–5 students study a well-rounded, integrated curriculum that inspires connections and application of knowledge.
Grades 6–8 are designed to foster student independence, self-motivation, confidence, and curiosity: the academic and organizational skills that will prepare them for high school and beyond.
Beginning with Advanced Placement® (AP) coursework and ending with college-style capstone courses and a Senior Project, the BASIS Curriculum in grades 9–12 is consistently ranked as one of the best high school programs in the U.S.

It is amazing to see the creative and brilliant minds of the students at work. It keeps me relevant because I can see the topics and questions that they are interested in solving, world issues that they are passionate about, and concerns that they have at this stage in life.Dr. MurthySubject Expert Teacher, Biology

Since our son has been at BASIS Independent Silicon Valley, he’s gained confidence as a student and he’s become an amazing advocate for himself and his own education. That’s been a joy for us to see. Our son's teachers are what makes the whole experience worthwhile.The BakersParents
