John Burroughs School Reviews

I graduated from JBS in 2016. It was a fantastic school! The student body is so diverse; everyone you meet can have wildly different viewpoints, and the students are open and enthusiastic to debate those viewpoints in the classroom and out of the classroom. The academics are tough, challenging and worth it. After graduating with honors and having taken some hard AP classes in high school, coming to college felt like a breeze. Burroughs prepares you so well for higher learning, and it inspired me to stay informed and look around for all different types of perspectives in everything in life.
Review John Burroughs School
Great academics, building a new STEM building, rather insular community both student and parents. A bit self congratulatory on issues of diversity, inclusion and discrimination. Most issues around diversity of any kind (political, social, economical, gender identity) tend to be held in a way that is meant to assure that people are in line with the more dominant (and left leaning) ideology on campus, which favors groups and categories over individualism and the broader proclamations of a truly shared community.
An outstanding school in terms of breadth of academics, experience of teachers, the number and diversity of clubs and activities, diverse school culture, great caliber and breadth of sports activities, abundant resources, tremendous opportunities for patents to get involved in a wide variety of school and outside events and activities, excellent college preparation that prepares students to any school in the country and elsewhere, in any field or occupation, very helpful and friendly administration, students served warm and delicious food with consideration of any special food and other needs requirements for students, teachers, and staff, outstanding facilities that include a number of new and stay of the art buildlings.
