Bassett High School is the best school either of my children have had the opportunity to attend. There is something for everyone . The teachers care and genuinely have the kids best interest at heart. They go the extra mile and it shows in the spirit the students have. It is a community within a community . It is a role model for the rest of us. I cannot wait for my son to get through middle school and experience high school at Bassett. It gets better every year.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Virginia used the Standards of Learning (SOL) End-of-Course tests to assess students in reading, writing, math, science and history/social science subjects at the end of each course, regardless of the student's grade level. The SOL End-of-Course tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Virginia. High school students must pass at least six SOL End-of-Course tests to graduate. The goal is for all students to pass the tests.
