OVERVIEW

The Primary Program at BASIS Independent Fremont offers an unmatched learning experience for students as they begin to fully embrace a variety of subjects and their inter-connectivity. This program is uniquely defined by the emphasis on connections between subjects as well as the teaching partnership present in grades 1–4.* Students have different Subject Expert Teachers (SETs) for every core class paired with a Learning Expert Teacher (LET) shepherding the learning environment as they move from each SET’s classroom to another with their LET.

We are now accepting applications for next fall for TK, grades 1, 2, 3, and 9. Learn more about Admissions.

In grades 1-3, students take a full schedule in the liberal arts, including advanced, integrated coursework in the humanities, math & science, engineering, Mandarin, the arts, and physical education. They even have a dedicated weekly 85-minute period called “Connections,” a scenario-based, hands-on learning experience designed to fuel creativity, ingenuity, not to mention social skills like team work and patience. In grade 4, coursework is no longer taught in integrated 85-minute blocks as a bridge to type of coursework and critical thinking expected of middle school students.

* The LET in grade 4 is not present with students in every class and is particularly focused on building independence and self-reliance in students as they prepare for grades 5 and up.
