John S. Burke Catholic High School Reviews

I love Burke Catholic! I attended public school from K-8th grade. The transition from large classes and a different environment to the small, Catholic atmosphere was great. Choosing to attend Burke Catholic was the best decision I ever made. My parents encouraged the idea but never forced me to go. When I heard of the school, I felt compelled to attend. The relationships I have made with friends, teachers and the staff is irreplaceable.

The school run down, two out of the three Boys bathrooms don’t even have functioning locks. Strict rules reinforced by very harsh teachers. Not saying there aren’t any good teachers it’s just that majority of the teachers are very rude and don’t respect their own students. Athletics is the only shining star in this school. Literally the only saving grace for Burke Catholic. The religious aspect is prevalent which should be suspected in a Catholic school. My personal experience has not been all negative. I will admit that I have developed a tight group of friend in Burke. But the negatives strongly out weigh the positives. Also, lunches are far from fair priced. The practice field is on a literal rock and dirt patch. Our game field is terrible as well. Clubs are also insanely underfunded. It feels like $10,000 shouldn’t just get you a sub par schooling experience. WHERE DOES ALL THE MONEY GO.
There was barely any diversity, food was okay, but my basketball experience contained racism, exclusion, favoritism, and other horrible elements. Some of the teachers were either lazy or racist, and no one understood you, only people of your race maybe could. They could definitely bring in more cultures and races, get more students involved, and bring more resources to ready students in their college experience, instead of discouraging them, encourage them and believe in them.
