We are thrilled to announce that BASIS Independent Silicon Valley, home of the Bobcats, has been named the top High School for 2020 Best Schools for STEM in California by Niche. Our robust curriculum, anchored by liberal arts courses, is complemented by our math, engineering and science offerings. Our students have spoken, and based on data collected by Niche, we have earned a coveted number one ranking.
The OECD results are in! We have crunched the numbers and, once again, our students are out performing the top countries and regions in the world. This is an assessment that tests critical-thinking and the application of knowledge not rote memorization.
Congratulations to our students!
Below is some information regarding the OECD test for schools based on the PISA and our results.
Students at BASIS Independent Schools know a thing or two about hard work and persistence in problem solving. Our accelerated and spiraled math curriculum gives students ample time to strengthen their fundamental skills so that each year, when our schools facilitate opportunities for students to participate in competitions, clubs, and more, they can then show off their talents and achieve new goals. This year’s math wins across several of our campuses are a testament of how well our students thrive in competitive situations.
Read on to explore just a few of the math-centric accomplishments from our campuses in Brooklyn, Fremont, Manhattan, McLean, and Silicon Valley.
Inspired by the blissful feeling of uncovering connections, our blog Eureka! Silicon Valley is about sharing moments that capture the essence of what it is to be a BASIS Independent student, teacher, administrator, or family.
