As such, our passionate administrative teams work collaboratively to create and implement year-round initiatives, as well as special events that keep our student body on track and focusing on options and opportunities that promote well-being and nurture the development of healthy decision-making skills. One of our community’s most beloved customs, born of these initiatives, is our tradition of Wellness Weeks.

The SET/LET Relationship: The Symbiotic Classroom Experience

One of the defining elements of our Primary Program is our Symbiotic Classroom, a teaching model that pairs a Subject Expert Teacher with a Learning Expert Teacher for every core discipline. 

Imagine that you are back at school, sitting in class. Maybe it's a class you excel at, and sometimes you feel distracted or bored because you've read ahead and you already know the material. Or maybe you’re in a class you don’t like very much because you struggle with the material. Why is the teacher going so fast? You barely understood the last lesson!

Now imagine there was a second teacher in that classroom, one who knew your strengths and areas for improvement, who could work with you to make sure you were achieving your potential in the best way for you. This is the approach that best describes the SET/LET model at BASIS Independent Fremont.
