I love the welcoming atmosphere, and the staff are great! Overall very supportive of all extracurriculars, including athletics, UIL Academics, Culinary, FFA, and more. Also very effective in helping graduating students with the college and career process.

Burnet High seems like an outwardly quiet, conservative school, but when you actually get on campus, you find that the school is actually a bustling, diverse community of its own. There are several student-organized clubs and groups to be a part of, from mental health support to on-campus religious discussion groups.
The staff is also very tolerant and supportive, and you can't go a single day without a teacher or counselor making sure you're having a good day. The counselors and administrators invite college speakers to the school, hold frequent college seminars, and have begun their quest to transform Burnet High School into an AVID-curriculum school.
The only drawback to attending Burnet High would have to be the trouble of being in a small town. The school attempts to give students as many opportunities as they can, but it's very hard for such a small school to attract the attention of colleges and public organizations.
Small town school with decent academics that could be improved if they want to further educate the rural area population. The lack of real support from teachers and actual teaching led to this overwhelming opinion. Sports were good and actually received decent support overall however the culture stigma of popularity only if football or baseball team still remains the same. The high school does finally have a great involved principal which is actually something they have needed for a long time. Hopefully this program continues to push for change out of the long term old fashioned thinking that education is of little worth and pushes for change to help change our future generations long term success
