The New Year is a time for reflection, establishing new goals, embracing new passions and challenges, and connecting with loved ones. With this sentiment in mind, now is an ideal time to engage with your student about what is most important in their lives. However, for some families effectively communicating with their child is easier said than done.
Recently, two of our parents shared with us why they chose BASIS Independent Fremont for their children. Here’s what they had to say:
As Bay Area parents, a lot of your time is spent thinking about the various options at your fingertips for giving your child the very best education possible and how to set them up to attend the best colleges and universities in the country.
BASIS Independent Fremont, our second school in Silicon Valley, plants its flag as our first primary program present in the region. We do, however, enjoy a legacy of success and parent satisfaction with our primary program around the country.
Meet Krithika R., former BASIS Independent Brooklyn mom to (now) 2nd grader Akshara R., and current Silicon Valley resident. Krithika brings with her to the valley a unique perspective: she both deeply understands BASIS Independent Schools as well as the reality of what it means to educate her children in the Bay Area. Keep reading for her perspective on the BASIS Independent Schools primary program and what this means for the Bay Area:
What made you switch to BASIS Independent in the first place?
Krithika R.: I was looking for a school that my daughter could grow in until 12th grade. BASIS Independent Brooklyn was a school that very clearly gave my daughter individual strength and independence while challenging her capacity to meet and exceed her potential. She was previously in a Montessori program and loved it. She thrived and excelled in it, but also didn’t push herself as much there. I knew she eventually would, but I didn’t want to wait a long time to see her meet her capacity. I wanted to see her push herself a little harder. Sometimes we all need a little push to get the ball rolling.
What’s it like to be the parent of a child at BASIS Independent?Parent Perspectives, a content blog series from our sister school in Brooklyn, answers precisely this question. We asked a few parents to share their thoughts on our program: What’s most surprising? What was the thought process in selecting BASIS Independent Brooklyn for their child?
We are excited to unveil to you the fruits of a couple of non-stop days in October at our Brooklyn Campus - our BASIS Independent videos!
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.
