The Jeremiah E. Burke high School ha been amazing for me personally, tanks to the copious amounts of opportunities provided and to the wonderful staff that make it easy to create a bond with. With the Burke's help and involvement in my life, I've been able to get a job, participate in and win competitions, receive awards and recognition, and even win money like the 2,00 my friend and I won in the Build Pitch Fest 2018. The Burke isn't perfect as it could use some help in it's academics, but overall it's a fantastic school.

The school has a bad reputation because of its passed, nonetheless everything has changed over the years. It is an amazing school with amazing teachers and staff. The Jeremiah E. Burke its the first school to successfully exit the turn around school status in Massachusetts, a great accomplishment that mirrors the high quality of work and effort being put not only by Ms. Mac, the headmaster,and her staff, but specially the students. The Burke High School is rewriting its story. Striving for greatness!
I was a horrible student my freshman year and sophomore years of high school, but the administration worked to push me towards a different route. They gave me the resources I needed like tutoring, college readiness programs and job specialist and because of that I've changed a lot in life. I'm a hard worker who looks to better himself everyday and the staff recognizes it and respects it. I would say choose your friends wisely because my friends were bad influences on me so I got rid of them and became friends with the staff and my peers that were focused on life and academics.
