When families begin learning about our Early Learning and Primary programs, they often ask us the same question: “Why do you teach Mandarin to all your students?"
Mandarin is a required part of our curriculum from Transitional Kindergarten to Grade 4 because Mandarin provides our early learners with the opportunity to engage both sides of their brains, provides students with visual and artistic stimulation, and promotes the development of interdisciplinary thought and analysis.
New BASIS Independent Silicon Valley Lower School Campus to Open Fall 2022!
BASIS Independent Schools, the world-acclaimed network of private schools, announced the expansion of BASIS Independent Silicon Valley to include a new Lower School campus in Sunnyvale where we will open our highly anticipated Lower School Program. The new campus will open in fall 2022, and we will begin to accept applications for the 2022-2023 school year on August 1, 2021. The Lower School will be located at 1500 Partridge Avenue in Sunnyvale!
BASIS Independent Silicon Valley will now serve students in TK through High School across both campuses providing them with our internationally benchmarked curriculum brought to life by passionate, dedicated Subject Expert Teachers. The Lower School will offer TK - Grade 5 while the Upper School in San Jose will focus on Grades 6 - 12.
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.
