Review John Burroughs School
What a great place! They are amazing at discovering challenges, classes and extracurricular activities at the students love. A lot of happy challenged children running around.
The education I received was outstanding. The competitive environment was a bit however I was very well prepared for my university studies. The diversity of the school has improved and I hope it will going forward. While the price tag is excessive for the Midwest, I am glad my parents made the financial investment in my education.
