After being in the district for all of my schooling, I have learned so much from my own experience at Burnsville. There are so many different kids all in one building, which is awesome, diversity is really important. Additionally, that can cause issues because so many different people from different backgrounds, can stir up problems. With the fights, to gun threats, if I were a parent of a student, Burnsville would be the last place they go.

I think that the education part of it, is the best, they offer so many college classes, really great teachers, and hard working administration. Along with that, it seems like the teachers are always working their hardest to make everyone happy.
