Attending this high school was unexpectedly better than I ever thought it would be. When I got put into this school, I was reluctant due to its reputation, but the people and staff are amazing people. My experiences here have definitely changed my life for a positive. When it came to academics there were choices for people like me who wanted more of a challenge and it really helped me advance in academics. The sports provide a space to challenge yourself in athletics and create bonds with people at the school. It's just a great time to be here and I'll miss Burton once I graduate.

This school was a great high school experience. I met a lot of interesting people and I learned a lot of new things. Entering high school, I believed that the experience would hopefully be finding more about myself and what I want in life. I didn't know how I would find it though, as it seemed that I was just moving in an aimless direction and wondering what it was all for. Thanks to the programs being presented, the staffs support through the years, and the community has really shaped who I am now and my decisions I will makes further on. I think that this school really set the grounds for my past which will carry on for my future as I am more certain than I ever been before.
Of course, every school has goods and bads, but my experience has been amazing. All the teachers would gladly help any student, even if you never had them as a teacher yourself. Most of them even stay after school in case a student needs extra tutoring. I transferred into this school my sophomore year and was at Washington High school my freshman year. If you want a very close community, with super nice teachers and faculty, it's definitely a good fit. Given its small class sizes, it's really easy to know everyone in your grade. It's really easy to get involved in your school.
