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.

Ohlone Elementary School
7 Best Public Elementary Schools in California
- Palo Alto Unified School District, CA
Middle School Student: A different experience from other schools, Ohlone is a very unique place. From combining grades to numerous trips, Ohlone is a very hands on school that has improved my social learning Although the academics could be more strict this is a good school.
