My overall experience as a high school student here was amazing! I made many new friends each year and the teachers are awesome and are willing to help any student with problems they may have during class or outside of school. Many opportunities for extracurricular activities and the opportunity to get ahead with your college career!

Burns High School turned me into a man, not only did it inspire me to want the world but it kept me humble in doing so. I loved how diverse it was all four years of my high school experience. I have learned a lot as far as learning how to not procrastinate, putting my studies first, and learning who I was. What I think should change about Burns High School is the fact that it allows a little too much of up bringing heritage into the school and a lot of racial slurs are spoken about on the regular. However, anywhere has it's hardships and I would not trade Burns High school for the world.
Burns High School is a widely diverse high school. Although everyone is from different backgrounds and are of different personalities they teachers find the good in every single person, finding ways for students and stuff to come together making great things.
