I have concluded that Burlington High School represents one aspect of an overall good school system with good foundation to carry me forward in life and be successful. I had opportunity to enroll in challenging classes (multiple advanced placement classes with great test results) and participate in the Music program via Marching Band and Wind Ensemble (audition only). My connections via teachers, advisors and other students was invaluable.

Burlington High School was wonderful. The teachers were consistently helpful and professional, the school environment was studious and motivated, and the student body was generally content and spirited. Although they could do a better job giving their students a voice in certain issues, on the whole, they make good decisions.
Burlington High School is overall a very accommodating and friendly school. Most of the teachers, apart from a few, are very kind and helpful. The Bridge Program is also a great program to help students succeed. There are some areas that can be improved on, like the faculty's inability to listen and do something about students' complaints about specific teachers.
