Burnet High School to me was almost like a second home. I spent all my time there. I was involved in a few things, and I'm very glad I did. Burnet taught me my weakness and strengths. It gave me many opportunities to become who I am and to always follow my dream. I had many bumps in the road, but I have learned from every mistake and failure I made in Burnet High School. This school is pretty amazing. It's very very unique. This school is and will continue to be the Spirit Pride Honor school. Thanks to this school I am who I am today.
The staff and teachers at Burnet HS are very caring and many of them are good at what they do, however there are issues with consistency in teaching. In addition, the rules are not enforced in a consistent way across the school, with some being overly strict, and others avoiding them in general. The food is mediocre, the sports are alright, and the school spirit honestly depends on the person. Overall, the school is fairly average and has just as many benefits as it does drawbacks.
