Lincoln Basset Community School is one of the great schools in New Haven area. Principle and teacher of this school are great.

Posted August 27, 2003

Lincoln Bassett has my son reading, writing, and arithmetic skill well over average. The classrooms are just too large, but he was able to learn because his teacher pushed him to learn.
