No stranger to the educational sphere, Mr. Josiah Wagoner has come to guide BASIS Independent Fremont’s Lower School following his experience as a Professor of Education, an educational administrator, educational content creator, and elementary school teacher. As the Associate Head of School and Director of Primary program at BASIS Independent Fremont, he nurtured the young careers of future teachers and trained them to implement the latest educational best practices. As a Dean of Students and Learning Expert Teacher, Mr. Wagoner developed expertise on the Social-Emotional needs of students, becoming known as an empathetic administrator who always puts the needs of students first.
While creating and implementing curriculum and guiding educators, Mr. Wagoner accumulated a wealth of experience in elementary learning and development, making him exceptionally suited to lead BASIS Independent Fremont’s Lower School campus as the new Head of School.
The 2022 Niche school rankings are in and BASIS Independent Schools continue to soar!

Just over five years later, campuses across our network have achieved impressive national recognition.

With the start of the 2021-2022 school year at BASIS Independent Fremont and many of our young scholars having been out of the traditional classroom environment for the better part of two years, it was clear that our first order of business for the school year needed to be…CELEBRATING! We. Are. Back! And boy, does it feel good to be on campus, engaging IN-PERSON with our talented scholars once again, building up the wonderfully diverse and inclusive community that makes BASIS Independent Fremont unlike any other.

The Senior Project is the crowning achievement of the BASIS Curriculum. The last two years may have looked a little different—with Senior Project research, on-site work, and presentations taking a virtual form—but our students persevered in order to complete this extraordinary milestone.
This blog sheds some light on the Senior Project, its history, our incredible advisors, and most importantly, the students who continue to show that they can and will exceed all expectations.
