BASIS Independent Schools: Inside the 2021 Senior Projects

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.

Curiosity, Connection, & Change: The Course of a Senior Project

BIB Senior Project Cover_FINALIn the fall of 2021, the BASIS Independent Manhattan Upper School campus building is set to open, which will continue our students’ academic journeys through a complete high school experience. As our rising grade 10 students get closer to their Senior Year, we benefit greatly from a relationship with our sister campus, BASIS Independent Brooklyn, and use them as a model of what future success will look like for us. Not only that, but also we like the collaboration that can benefit all of our students. A very good example of this synergy can be found in a Senior Project conducted by Zihan S. (Class of 2021, BASIS Independent Brooklyn).

2018 Senior Projects at BASIS Independent Schools

Senior Projects are a very exciting and unique part of the senior year experience at BASIS Independent Schools. We wanted to take this chance to look ahead with a blog post from BASIS Independent Silicon Valley detailing the senior projects underway there right now. Please note the post below is republished with minor edits from BASIS Independent Silicon Valley Blog.

It is with optimism and pride that we support our seniors as they complete their final trimester as BASIS Independent Silicon Valley students. Now past the huge milestone of applying to college, our 67 seniors have so much of their education behind them, but are, in many senses, faced with one of the biggest growth experiences in their education to date: the Senior Project.

#SeniorProjectSaturday - Nandini Sharma

In keeping with our commitment to fostering critical thinking skills, BASIS.ed incorporates interdisciplinary coursework throughout our program. We believe that teaching students to make connections across disciplines, to ask questions and seek solutions and answers across traditional disciplinary boundaries, produces creative and independent thinkers and prepares our students for life and work in the 21st century. 
1608_089_SeniorProjectSaturday_Nandini_Sharma.jpgWhile all BASIS.ed coursework includes some level of instruction in interdisciplinary thinking, the Senior Project is perhaps the most salient example of these skills at work. Although BASIS Independent Manhattan doesn't offer a high school program just yet, our students can continue into our PreK-12 sister school, BASIS Independent Brooklyn.

Each year, the BASIS.ed community has the pleasure of celebrating the accomplishments of our entire network of students, participating each year in the presentations of their findings. The richness of the accomplishments of the students knows no limit; we'll share with you each week the abstracts and videos for you to get to know some of our students. Meet Nandini Sharma from BASIS Phoenix and keep reading for her presentation abstract.
