Sweeping ...  Read more

One month into the school year we had to pull her out because the bullying was out of control. I got no help from the school. ...  Read more

Bassett Middle has a bullying problem ..... Its the worse school I have ever sent my kid to

Posted by a parent on 03/29/12

The school has a bullying problem that was taken care of. But as far as the academic goes it does not exceeds the standards to the East where books are available and the children are learning at a higher pace. Plus, candy and slurpees are being sold during lunchtime in which the school tries to compensate ...  Read more

It's all up to the child ...  Read more
