Edmund Burke School Reviews

I was accepted as a late transfer when I had problems with my previous HS. When I entered the school during my junior orientation, I immediately met nice and inclusive students. The teachers were extremely supportive and helped me develop a safe space in a new environment. My entire experience here was extremely wonderful- despite the cringe assemblies and songs that were played. The teachers were by far the nicest and most supportive people ever. Burke has been the best thing that has happened to me and it's extremely diverse, weird in its own way, and fun.

Burke challenges me but I'm still motivated to do well. The good teachers at Burke (a majority) are really amazing. The few bad teachers here really are bad.
Burke is small, so rumors spread really quickly. We all tend to get cabin fever in the winter and that is when the overall environment gets toxic, but when we get some space, we're ok. There is a huge judgmental culture here. There is the occasional racist/sexist/homophobic slip-up, but what school doesn't have those? I've been very happy here because I have found a really wonderful and supportive group of friends.
I have had such a good support system at Burke. Teachers are always accessible and very helpful, whether you need help with homework, a paper, studying, or personal problems. The advisor program has been a huge help for me.
Burke is an incredible school with an amazing principal and top-notch teachers. I have thrived during my time here - everyone is kind and diversity is valued. The academics are challenging but everyone is truly supportive. Overall, I feel like I have made some wonderful friends and couldn’t be happier.
