The Right Private School
Private School in San Jose
As you consider BASIS Independent Silicon Valley as the private school for your child, we’d like to remind you of our simple approach to education, one that we’ve practiced for more than a decade and continue to improve upon. Our Independent Schools will be no difference, because we also are learners.
1 | Hire great teachers who love kids, who have deep content knowledge and a passion for what they teach.
2 | Lift the bar up to the highest global standards, and students will rise to meet the challenge.
3 | Light a fire in the heart, mind and soul of every child. Help them carve out their own path of learning, so that they can succeed in college and make their way in the adult world.
4 | Break the hard sciences down into their essential elements in middle school: Chemistry, Physics and Biology. As they know in the best school systems in Europe and Asia, this works.
5 | Recognize that a thorough knowledge of grammar is necessary for good writing, and that logic builds critical-thinking and problem-solving skills.
A key element of the BASIS Independent difference is our focus on creating the best private school experience possible for our students. If it isn’t absolutely necessary for achieving academic excellence, then we don’t do it. Steve Jobs said it best: “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.”
