The teachers and staff are very nice and we do a good job encouraging diversity and acceptance. They offer an abundance of AP and CIS classes, which is great for students who want a challenge.
Being a student at Burnsville has taught me many things other than education. With there being so many different peole it has helped me see other peoles prespectives which will hlep me be more open and understamnding to people in my future. Unlike other schools, Burnsville has many different pportunities with pathways that really help students enter the workforce. An example of this is the EMT program students can take classes throughout high school and work with real EMTs to help gain experience and have more opportunities straight out of high school. One sad thing about Burnsville is the budget cuts which has decreased the amount of extra ciriculars students have for after school
Very diverse with exceptional academics. The staff is very friendly and are always willing to help, as long as you are the one to reach out.
I attended Burnsville High School for two years. In high school, I was really involved with my academic classes so I was very pleased to see they offered CIS (college in the schools) classes. Many friends had warned me that Burnsville High School wasn't a "good school" but for me, I was just fine academically. Challenging courses at any school are still going to be challenging.
I admired the students the most. I’ve made many meaningful connections and friends at BHS. However, some teachers are a hit or miss; I’ve always done well academic-wise reguardless.
My experience at Burnsville High School was great. The thing that made my experience great was that the teachers were always ready to help out whenever you needed it. I honestly could not have done it without the encouragement from my teachers. I am now wanting to go to college to become a nurse and I have a lot of confidence in my abilities to do good in the future because of them. I loved the classes I took which for example I took a nursing class, and since I want to go into nursing I felt like that was a great opportunity for me. I was really sad when we had to do online because I am going to miss the environment that I was in, but I understand that the school had to close so that we can slow down Covid.
Burnsville High School is a fairly good school. It has a lot of after school activities and ways to be involved in school to meet new people. It is a very diverse community. The halls can get pretty crowded during passing time so don't plan to have much time to go to your locker in between classes.
It was a really good school, and it did do a great job of preparing me for college but, the school wasn’t very safe. The school was very diverse but we had A LOT of racial slurs and racial altercations and fights too.
Based on my experience so far at Burnsville high school it’s a well manage diversity school. There were some issues that I personally disliked was the school work online , I’m mostly a visual learner so there were a few rough things.
Overall good experience with Burnsville High School. Had a few problems with teachers who were stuck in their ways and not really open to adapting to students' needs or ways of learning. There were teachers that I really clicked with which made learning more fun.
overall there are a lot of problems our school has but the advanced programs such as AP and CIS that I have been in has been great.
While Burnsville High School has some promising clubs, the racial and gender equality within BHS is poor. My time at Burnsville has shown me several clubs that are beneficial to students and the community. DECA teaches students vital business skills and helps the community through its annual blood drive. Also, Burnsville Strong and Link Crew make it their mission to ensure the physical and mental well being of the students and community by volunteering to help with everything from caring for the elderly to placing anti-anxiety rooms in the school. This being said, hall monitors have a tendency to only ask colored students where they are supposed to be; I, as a white female, have never been stopped while passing a hall monitor without a pass while my colored friends have been stopped whether or not they held a hall pass. Gender equality is also a weak point within the school with dress codes targeting females and leaving male students wearing virtually whatever they please.
great school,had good teachers, consulares, and above all FRIENDS! the one thing I will miss about this school is why I can't stay their longer. Everyone is just so so so nice!
Going to Burnsville high school has been great. Involved in sports with invested coaches has helped me improve as a person.
teachers actually help a lot, but what should change is sometimes got to make sure the teaching makes sense
I loved the amazing theatre program and music programs! I was able to have a wide variety of activities, and academics. I was able to travel with the school band, and have leadership opportunities. I appreciated how hard the staff worked to have all students achieve academically. I also was able to earn almost 30 credits through the University of Minnesota while still being in high school. I am very thankful for my high school experience.
The Honors and AP teachers were very focused on helping their students to succeed in their academic endeavors. I enjoyed the variety of activities and clubs that were offered. However, budget cuts eliminated programs that should have maybe stayed.
