Congratulations to the class of 2022!

#3 - Ribbon Cutting Ceremony Celebrating the Grand Opening of our Lower School Campus!

We recently celebrated the grand opening of the BASIS Independent Silicon Valley Lower School Campus through an official ribbon-cutting ceremony! Joining this celebration were members of the Spring Education Group leadership team, BASIS Independent Schools leadership, and the BASIS Independent Silicon Valley administrative team.

Our upper school campus, which is home to our middle and high school students, opened in 2014. Through hard work, commitment, and dedication from our staff and students, this campus has been a huge success. This led to the grand opening of our new lower school campus, one of the newest expansions of the BASIS Independent School network. Our lower school campus is home to our TK - Grade 5 Bobcats and is nestled in Sunnyvale, California.
