It’s celebration time at BASIS Independent Silicon Valley! 


Our Academic Recognition awards ceremony was recently held for students in grades 5, 6 and 7. We love any opportunity to bring together the BASIS Independent community of students, teachers, administrators and family…and this was no exception!

Students accepted awards in the following categories:

  • Most Improved: Students who have shown significant progress across their classes
  • 90’s Club: Those who have achieved a grade of 90% or higher
  • Honor Role: Awarded to students who are in the top 15% of their class

Reed, a 6th grader, received a Most Improved award and what he had to say is something that resonates across any grade and age level:

“All my hard work has paid off. It’s a reminder that when we keep working hard there are great rewards.”

Well said, Reed!


We are very proud of all of our students and praise all of their hard work. They are clearly thriving, partly due to the unwavering support of parents, teachers, administrators and family.  Acknowledging and celebrating student accomplishments is just one of the defining characteristics of the BASIS Independent Silicon Valley community. 

Grades 5 – 7:  Student Achievement is celebrated at the end of each of the five grading periods.

Grades 8 – 12: Student Achievement is celebrated with Honor Roll inductions and the Commended Scholar ceremony.
