Vilnius Jonas Basanavičius pre – gymnasium is a school in Vilnius.
It was founded in 1951 and 17 years later it got reorganized and was called the 53rd elementary school. The subjects were taught in Lithuanian and Russian. The name of the school was changed a few times throughout the years, but a significant change was implemented in 1975, it was moved into a new building in Konarskio street.

Currently there are about 1000 students, who are divided into 36 classes. The school also has about 80 teachers of whom a third are primary school teachers.
