Phillip and Sala Burton Acadmic High School is a great school overall. I’ve enjoyed the years I’ve been here so far and flourished in the academics as well as extracurricular activities! The diversity is stunning and highly appreciated as students and staff get to experience a variety of cultures and traditions. Unfortunately, our school gets a terrible reputation based off its past but as the enrollment of Burton High School continues, it is no long the school it was once before and I am proud to be a student here.

Hi! I'm a sophomore who studies in Burton High School. I've a great experience with the administration people, because they're really helpful and nice. I really like the different strategies teachers use to teach,the topics we're studying,and the diversity of things we have in school. At last, Burton gives lots of support and I love it!
The schools has many resources and opportunity for its students. The school is constantly hosting social events for students to socialize and build community such as Senior Skate Night and Gratitude Dinner. My teachers are always exposing me to new opportunities through setting up field trips and job shadows. The school also offers Puma Academy, 7 days a week afterschool. Puma Academy is a tutoring center that is open to all students at Burton.
