    "My son attended this school last year. He is in 7th grade now and is not one of the bigger kids. He was harassed in hallways, had things stolen from him and was stabbed in the leg with a freshly sharpened pencil in class and I was not informed of any of this until my son was home from school. Sweeping things under the rug seems to be their way. I believe I should be immediately informed when my son is a victim of assault as do most parents. To further the incompetence and blatant disregard, when I returned to the school expecting to speak to a principal about any one of these things, no one could be bothered to see me. I got shuffled to a new counselor who had been there less time than my son and had no idea what I was talking about. I was irate. I did not hold it against the counselor and made that known but when finally approached by an administrator I was told I had no proof that my son had been victimized (btw lead was still in my sons leg) I was met with accusations of him maybe doing to himself, his word against other student and the threat of police being called as I was apparently "belligerent" as well as an over arrive parent making something it of nothing."

    "Absolutely horrible school. Please if you can avoid it do not send our children here. my son was assigned this school because of our address and I am now looking to move simply because I could not take another year of their incompetence. We PCS'd (moved) here in August and from the start they failed to do their jobs properly. They lost my sons enrollement documents, so we had to have many meetings on his curriculum. They have no transition for students going from a structured elementary system to Middle school. Kids are just supposed to figure it out. This includes textbooks, which my son was told he had to go and get from the school librarian during his lunch time because they do not issue them out during class. There is little to none responsibility for when things go wrong, everyone wants to blame someone else. God forbid your child missed the bus home because they would not let him in the school to use the phone and call me. Twice he had to walk about 5 miles to the house. This is by far the worst school I have ever encountered and hope that this review keep other parents away from it."

    "I am an eighth grader at Bassett, and this is my first year here. I absolutely love it! The people here are so nice, and everyone was talking to me the first day of school. My dad had heard that this wasn't a very good school, but I am happy I decided to go here. Our overall grades aren't very good, but the teachers are amazing. I have have had all A's this year, and I am also the editor for our school yearbook. Even if you are struggling in a subject, there is tutoring almost everyday after school. The school offers a variety of technology programs, such as dollars and sense, keyboarding, and a class just learning about technology, I have all three. I have never been bullied and there are amazing people here to become friends with. I would definitely recommend Bassett for anyone to attend."

    "I was warned about this school before my daughter started by numerous people. I still gave it a chance. WORST decision ever made. Teachers are horrible and could care less about their job. School is way underfunded. 8th graders can't pass the 6th grade star test. I was warned, and will warn others please do not let your child even waste a year at this school."

    "The only children who are happy, and excel in this school, are the children who are popular, well known, and strong. Parents only see what they want to see; their spoiled little brats happy, no matter how much they hurt the other children."
