BASIS Independent Fremont Reviews
Yes. BIF is part of a huge network of for-profit company. As such, many important decisions are done from CEO or other people remotely, not onsite.
The head of school can't decide on important things. Their admission acceptance form, a contract between parents and the school, is carefully created by highly professional lawyers and there are absolutely zero fairness in that contract. For example, a student can be kicked out of the school and the school can still charge for the remaining of tuition. The school can close due to pandemic and parents are still obligated to pay full tuition.
The teachers are hit-or-miss. Students in upper grades can expect to meet 1-2 excellent teachers, 1-2 very bad ones, and 3-4 average ones. There are a few good teachers but they often get promoted quickly to admin roles and no longer teach.
