I had a phenomenal experience at Burlingame. I received an education that prepared me for college, and had an unmatched athletic career (went undefeated for two seasons, winning back-to-back championships!) that also prepared me to compete at the Division 1 level. I remember my time at Burlingame fondly and am looking forward to coming back to tell my teachers that I will be starting medical school in the fall!
Review Burlingame High School
Burlingame High School provided a safe and excellent learning environment. Despite having some teachers that weren't as helpful, I felt that my time at this school was an academically enriching experience. The students, parents, and faculty create a wonderful atmosphere at this school and hopefully it will continue. The most important part about BHS is that students always feel there is someone in the administration or staff that they could turn to if necessary.
Overall a great experience at Burlingame High School. In general the professors were always there to help you and guide you to achieve the best out of yourself so I really appreciated that. School events were fun and well organized. To be honest only flaw would be the cliques but every high school has that! Really enjoyed my 4 years here. (:
