BASIS Independent Silicon Valley
- Private School
- San Jose, CA
Middle School Student: Basis's curriculum is outstanding compared to other public and private schools alike. It includes all 3 sciences, Biology, Physics, and Chemistry, with excellent teachers teaching these subjects. My experience here has been amazing with my friends, but quite boring without. Things I would change about Basis Independent Silicon Valley would be to add more sport clubs or sport teams. So far, we only have a volleyball girls team, basketball boys team, and basketball girls team. Also, they need a bigger school ground if your the type of person who likes to play wall ball, football, soccer, etc. The school also needs to improve its diversity among people, because the school is about 95 percent asian. Overall, Basis is all about STEM and barely any competitive sports making this school quite unique.

Works Here: I am a proud after school teacher at Rosa Parks. This is a school community that works together to support students and families in every way possible. Each student is tracked carefully and provided math and reading intervention when needed. Equity and inclusion are a number one priority at Rosa. Gender neutral restrooms, a yearly PRIDE parade, and daily morning school gatherings where we all recite a pledge by Rosa Parks and practice our social/emotional "tool box" make this school an affirmative environment for all. The after school program called Kid's Village offers amazing enrichment classes-from the yoga class with Papa Da to slime making. Kids just don't want to leave at pick up time!
