Passion, Perseverance, and the Intersection of Biomedical Research & Computer Science: Meet the Winner of the 2023 Fellows Scholarship for Excellence in Senior Projects!
The leaves are falling, the air is turning crisp, and seniors are putting the finishing touches on their college applications: it’s October, so one would think that the third trimester would be far from students’ minds at the moment. In reality, seniors at BASIS Independent Schools are hard at work in the beginning stages of their Senior Projects!
One of the advantages of a smaller school community and faculty is having interdepartmental collaboration. Within this environment, our educators have a keen understanding of students’ needs, enabling the effective implementation of Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) programs tailored to specific areas and individual student requirements.
“SEL starts with the teacher,” emphasized Mr. Tyler, Subject Expert History Teacher at BASIS Independent Bellevue. He has taken the lead in establishing a SEL framework for all grade levels within our school. Mr. Tyler asserts that once educators are proficient in managing their own SEL, the focus should shift towards integrating this skill more intentionally into the classroom.
The 2024 Niche private school rankings have been released, and BASIS Independent Schools maintains its position as a national leader in K–12 education.

The last week of school means Term Project Week at BASIS Independent Bellevue! Term Project Week is an opportunity for students in all grades to work with their peers on multidisciplinary projects and to engage in a fun, new activity or trip with various grade levels. Students are grouped with Term Project Teachers for each project.
These projects challenge our students to be cooperative learners and to function as a team. We offer a variety of options, and strive to add new projects each year based on both faculty and student interest.
