About Bassett

Bassett Street Elementary has served the students of the Lake Balboa/Van Nuys community since 1958. Approximately 700 students attend the school. Our dedicated faculty, administrators, and staff collaborate with families to ensure that all students are college and career ready.  

Vision

All Bassett stakeholders will provide a safe and motivating environment for life-long learners, who are prepared to participate as responsible citizens in a diverse and complex technological society. 

Mission

It is our commitment to ensure that ALL students have equal access to a high quality, rigorous and challenging educational program in a nurturing, safe environment.  We are committed to inspire our students with an appreciation of learning and respect for diversity, to empower them to be effective communicators, independent learners, and creative problem solvers.  We will achieve this goal with a strong, collaborative relationship among parents, staff and students.
