Dear Visitor,

We are embarking on a school year like no other. While we are beginning the year teaching via a distance learning model, our mission continues to be to raise the standard of education to the highest international level. Although we cannot gather on campus right now to achieve this goal, our Bobcat spirit will still be palpable throughout our Zoom classrooms and Schoology sessions.

Our teachers continue to be experts in their field, and our students’ curiosity is thriving. As they have historically done, our seniors will apply for college, and we know that they will continue the tradition of the Bobcats before them with their impressive college acceptances.

There may not be much that feels normal about this year, but what does stand out to me is the consistent agility and dedication exhibited by our robust community as we have prepared for the 2020-2021 school year. These are qualities that I have come to expect in our Bobcats, and it is comforting to see them persist during these
unprecedented times.

As Head of School at BASIS Independent Silicon Valley (BISV), I always enjoy talking to prospective students and their families, and helping them to learn about our school. I believe that our amazing teachers and students speak for themselves, and I am delighted that you are considering becoming a part of our fantastic community.

Yours Sincerely.

Ms. Sara Kolb
Head of School
