So I grew up going to a different school my whole life all up until my sophomore year I made the transfer to come to Burley. The School I left had a poor administration they would only need to talk you if you were in trouble. Here at Burley I felt so welcomed when I came. The Vice Principal Called me in checked on me and help me make goals for the year. Now as a Senior I see them in the hall talking to students making jokes and making sure everyone was feeling included in the school. At my old school I couldn't fill my schedule as a sophomore! They didn't offer me near as much as Burley did. Here I was enrolled in honers and dc classes. The teachers were awesome and they all really wanted everyone to succeed. Overall the switch was the best decision I have made in education career yet.

Burley Senior High School has a great curriculum that challenges students. I feel as though I am leaving high school well prepared to begin a new adventure in college. My high school made me feel part of a community and we had a great time together. The school excels in academics, athletics, community and arts. Our Boys basketball team recently won the state consolation championship and our dance and cheer teams are attending state competitions soon. The only improvement I can think of would be that I wish that there were more dual enrollment courses for students. I have taken dual enrollment courses for the last few semesters and I would have liked to have had a few more choices. I am graduating from High school with a 3.95 GPA and I will be attending college in the fall to study Radiographic Technology. I can't wait to begin a new adventure! Thank you.
I moved to Burley High School my Senior year and my life had changed drastically. The teachers are well educated and great communicators. The staff and Administrators care deeply for all students and make sure they are doing well. The school is clean everyday and I have never felt unsafe. They follow the rules and guidelines, while making the class a fun environment for students to learn. Overall, my experience at Burley Senior High School has been superior.
