Burlington high school offers a great environment for all students to explore their interests. The staff offers a good friendly atmosphere for all students and this makes students feel safe and loved when in school. The facilities are well structured and offer a safe environment. Diversity is what makes Burlington high school different from other schools because students interact with each other without any racial discrimination and that brings togetherness not only in the school but also the community of Burlington. The clubs and activities in school offer students with a chance to take on leadership roles and also exchange ideas on how to promote and live in a positive environment. This has also helped the community be troublesome free. Sports are a good thing in Burlington high school as students compete in sports they love. Me as an athlete, sports have helped me mature and become reasonable in my life

Burlington Public schools are amazing! I have met amazing teachers who really care about their students throughout the many years I have been here. The only thing they need is a new high school... But the other schools are very nice inside.
Burlington High School helped me grow so much so far this year! All of the teachers are super nice and helpful in every way possible. Everyone around you is also kind and welcoming. Overall, BHS is an excellent school.
