    Bassett High School is the best school either of my children have had the opportunity to attend. There is something for everyone . The teachers care and genuinely have the kids best interest at heart. They go the extra mile and it shows in the spirit the students have. It is a community within a community . It is a role model for the rest of us. I cannot wait for my son to get through middle school and experience high school at Bassett. It gets better every year.
