    "Basic is such a great school. I went there already for a year and everyone was saying how bad it was. They said that the teachers don't help, and the students are criminals. That is absolutely wrong! The teachers are always there to help when we need it. And I new so many other students from every other grade level. They were not criminals. They were the best of friends you could ask for. If you ask me this school will let you be yourself and go at your own pace."

    "ParentLink software to monitor your child's grades has issues that staff is unable to resolve. Some classes do not get grade updates posted and teachers and school admit to not having a solution. ParentLink, the software company, only says to have the school contact them. In the long run, we are nearly done with the school year and I'm still not able to see updates for all classes. Some teachers are very passive and don't correct students when they aren't staying on task. Requests for parent teacher conferences are not responded to by guidance counselor."

    "Well, I'm a former student and just called to ask for transcripts, was directed to the wrong person 3 times, and whoever you have answering your phones needs to be replaced IMMEDIATELY. The staff of this school, with exception of a few, has ALWAYS been terrible. I graduated in 2000. With honors... And my name was miss-spelled on my diploma... If that tells you anything else about this "school"... I'm simply needing a transcript for license in my current state, under the board of Cosmetology. After explaining FIVE times, that "no, I'm not tryyyying to go to school. I've been a hair stylist for 10 years. I just need this for THE STATE BOARD OF KANSAS to obtain a NEW license!!!???" Get it together BASIC. Brings me back though... All I ever learned at Basic High School was how NOT to do things. Looks like not much has changed. That's Henderson for ya. I'm extremely disappointed right now. And embarrassed that I ever attended this school."

    "I Love Basic!! This school and the MJROTC program has brought the best of my child out. However, the problem is with the students and parents who don't care about education and disrupt the already overflowing classrooms. How do you expect a teacher to teach when there are so many unappreciative/disrespectful students in the school when, as a first person witness, I have seen and heard parents come into the Dean's office and say "They (the child) is your problem - not mine"! How can you combat a combative, ignorant parent"? I am an involved parent who takes reponsibility for her child instead of pushing it off on others....in other words I am a responsible parent who does not blame others for my child's shortcomings - I work with the teachers and administration to make sure my child gets the best education that these teachers can provide - unfortunatley there is an element in the public schol that will not make this possible without parent involement and discipline and no "blame game""

    "Although im not a student at basic high,i plan to attend it.Mainly for its academics and its MCROTC. This school has a 5/10 test score and a 3/5 community score. Considering this is Vegas,Those scores are phi nominal. Ive done research on the schools mcjrotc and based off the cadet reviews and drill videos ive seen,i cant wait to go. I love this school and i hope you do to."
