At BASIS Independent School Silicon Valley we understand that innovation comes from an insatiable desire to know and to discover the old-fashioned way. The most important thing we do is get expert teachers, who are passionate, in a classroom with students being challenged to think harder and further them more than they have in the past. And it shows: according to the international academic test PISA, our students outperform their peers from top education systems such as China and Finland in math, reading and science.

Our core is a unique coming-together of three key elements–educators, curriculum, and students.

“We learn and apply what works. If it doesn’t advance the educational experience, we don’t do it,” said BASIS Co-Founder Dr. Michael Block in a national interview.

Everything we do is designed to enhance the learning experience of our students and show them that the sky is the limit when it comes to their academic potential. Our approach produces a powerful outcome: students who want to be successful at school and teachers who work exceptionally hard to ensure a student’s success.

We believe:
-Every child deserves an opportunity to grow and excel academically and have access to teachers who have faith in their ability to do so.
-There is no substitute for hard work and persistence.
-Classrooms are sacrosanct. We consider the student-teacher relationship to be the defining element of BASIS Independent Schools, and prevent any interruptions or behavior that might disrupt it. This is why our teachers have private, individual offices while school managers work in communal spaces. We direct resources to what truly matters.

That is the BASIS Independent difference.
And it works.
