I liked the size of my school and the student to teacher ratio. I didn’t like the lack of classes offered.
The teachers and administrators at Burke High School are very caring and do their best to provide a good education. Burke really feels like home and I love the size. I know everyone at my school and I'm very grateful for the experience I had during my time there.
I love this school. I have went to school here since i was able to attend school. I am currently a Senior here at Burke High School and i would not want to graduate anywhere else. The administration is always willing to help you when needed and the small sized classes make it easier to ask my teachers questions. If i need help bringing my grade up they always have something else i can do to help me out and succeed as a student.
I transfer here when I was in high school, and I loved the teachers. I felt like I was learning and not just wasting time. I am one of those students that have to study for a couple of hours on each subject to get a good grade. I felt like the teachers here wanted to help and make make sure you understood the content.
I believe that our school administration is okay. They mean well in the things that they do, but some of the ideas that they put into play confuse me just a little bit. Sometimes, the things that they want to impliment do not get put into use. For example, Last year they wanted to do something to reduce the amount of bullying in our school. The principal, superintendent, and the student council had a meeting to discuss different ways we could go about fixing this problem, but little was done that school year. They are getting better this year with implimenting their ideas right away.
The teachers are great and are willing to go the extra mile for the students. We are lacking a guidance counselor, and I believe we need one. I needed some help with classes this year and with college scholarships. I missed out on one scholarship because of a class requirement that I am lacking. I wish someone would have been on top of that to let me know.
