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.

Great school - excellent teachers, some of the best administrators (really have a a modern forward-looking approach to learning). Great classmates -amazing diversity, smart people, well-rounded, life-long friends. Really great sports teams and facilities for sports. Lots of other great activities. Amazing how well Burlington prepared me for my college days. They should build a new school at some point though.
Both children are in marching band and also play fall sports. Most coaches encourage the diversity. However, some do not. They contradict themselves saying the encourage it but then would say although you missed practice for band, you will be benched and not allowed to play.
Most teams agree on a shared schedule. But not all.
