Bassett Senior High School Reviews
I was a former student at Bassett High School. The education system there can improve. I almost felt that the teachers there gave up on the students. Thankfully, I managed to graduate from there [which is a big accomplishment]. Academics is not the student's high priority there.
Much work needs to be done to improve the quality of education. The leadership of the district and school lacks the vision to do what is necessary to make this school a top institution.
I went to Bassett High School my freshman year, and even though I moved away, it has always been the one school I felt like home.
