I am excited to have a world class K-8 school opening in Fremont! I have been waiting for a program that will go all the way to 12th grade, has data to show that it is one of the best in the world, and is an accelerated program that also focuses on kids taking responsibility for their own education. My older son has been with Basis in San Jose for 2 years and it's been a remarkable experience. Can't wait for my younger one to start at Basis Fremont in the Fall.
