My experience in Bassett Senior High School was not great. The school didn't have many benefits and opportunities coming to the students. For instance, the school didn't have the money to afford classes and activities. For example, there weren't sufficient advanced placement classes, foreign language classes, not many sports/clubs, and having fewer teachers. My experience throughout my four years, there are several things I would like to change in high school.
For other students who will be attending Bassett High School, for a better experience, I would like to change the number of classes and teachers. The school should include more advanced placement classes, foreign language classes, and add teachers who know how to teach. These changes can give students multiple opportunities.

Bassett High School was an amazing experience of mine, although not every school is great, Bassett was a good school in my eyes. I have such a passion for the music department, I hope that for future years the budget will be increased rather than decrease. I hope the counselors will offer children more help, and for certain teachers (and there are some everywhere) to care more about a child's education.
I loved how the teachers at Bassett were so kind and very helpful in any circumstance. They aren't simply teachers they are pretty much like friends if you wanted them to be. The environment of the school is pleasant and everyone seems to always be enjoying themselves and creating memories. I would not change anything about the school, it is great as it is!
