Although there were many awesome opportunities available at BHS, the budget cuts often made things far less affordable to students. The teachers were either really amazing or really awful, the administration did not care about students at all--just publicity and money, and serious safety threats to the school were never handled properly. The district cut funding to the music department, Youth In Government, and several other non athletic activities. One of the female guidance counselors was horrible and neglected the wellness of several students in my year alone. The way the school administration handled bullying, threats, crime, etc. was honestly horrifying. I will never send my children there and I advise no one else to until they clean up their safety protocol, start treating their staff and students like humans and not dollar signs, and handle the safety more seriously.
I loved going to Burnsville! The school has amazing diversity and fun school spirit. I participated in two sports for the high school and everyone was very supportive and the coach staff was great! The athletic director is the best person you will ever meet. Burnsville has dedicated teacher who all really care about there students but the administrators really get in their way. I think they need to change, if ten year teachers are leaving because of administration then you know they have a problem. Over all I loved my time a Burnsville and I will forever be proud to the blaze.
