Recently, we followed the seventh grade for a day to discover a typical day in middle school at BASIS Independent Fremont. Ms. Villanueva, a Subject Expert Teacher who teaches Creative Writing as a seventh grade elective this year, decided to repeat the experiment and see for herself what her students experience each day at school. Below are her notes from her day of middle school!

Each year, hundreds of teachers from the various BASIS Curriculum Schools gather in Arizona for Summer Institute, a week of learning, networking, and preparing for the upcoming school year. Newly hired teachers and those changing roles attend this annual event, where they gather in peer groups to establish best practices for educating students in the context of the grades and subjects they teach within the BASIS Curriculum.
Our sister school BASIS Independent Silicon Valley recently hosted the team from CBS This Morning - Saturday, and had the chance to explain how our academic community is just so incredible.

The following blog is repurposed with minor edits from our sister school, BASIS Independent Silicon Valley. Please join with us in congratulating their newest graduating seniors on their many achievements and in wishing them well as they head off to some of the top colleges and universities in the world.
A round of applause for the Class of 2018, please! Our soon-to-be graduates have completed their final year at BASIS Independent Silicon Valley, and we could not be more honored to have had the opportunity to guide them to this pivotal point in their lives.
Not only have these students conquered a rigorous senior year filled with capstone courses, which required a deep dive into high-level content, many of our seniors participated in Senior Projects or AP Research Projects. Throughout it all, they worked hard to find and apply to colleges that they believe will be the best fit for their skills and interests. As a result of their extraordinary efforts—not just this year, but through their entire academic journeys—our Class of 2018 has gained entry to some of the oldest and most selective universities: California Institute of Technology, Princeton University, and Stanford University, just to name a few.
Read on for the complete list, and please help us congratulate our 2018 Bobcats!
Inspired by the blissful feeling of uncovering connections, our blog Eureka! Fremont is about sharing moments that capture the essence of what it is to be a BASIS Independent student, teacher, administrator, or family.
