    "My son has been a student at Burr for three years. Two of them in the pre-k program with Mrs. Maley and now kindergarden with Ms. K. I have only had great experiences here. The teachers are very caring, dedicated and prepared. When my child started school he was a very shy child and I've seem him blosoom every year."

    "I had my son in first grade last year with Mrs. B. Iam pleased to say that I was very happy with her way of teaching. She challanged my son, and was also caring and patient. I only wish all teachers would be as caring and have the patience to teach young children like she has."

    "My daughter has been at Burr for two and a half years and I continue to think very highly of this great Chicago public school. There are many additional programs that enhance the regular curricullum, and the kindergarten teacher, Ms. Knafelz is very dedicated, creative and caring. My daughter has been consistently challenged, and the simple daily homework routine sets a high standard and promotes good discipline. Her reading, writing and math skills have steadily progressed. Hurrah for Burr!!"

    "I would like to express how very pleased I am with the education my children receive, academically and beyond. My children have attended Burr since 2002. They've always been encouraged to go above and beyond. With the reforming of our PTO (Parent-Teacher Organization) Parental involvement continues to grow. The teachers and staff are very welcoming and work with the families to help each child achieve their best grades and test scores. The principal, Ms. Scott, is highly educated and experienced and continues to take classes/courses to continue her education (which she also requires of her staff). She is a great leader and a wonderful example to her teachers of what an educator should be. I love that respect for teachers, peers, and the children themselves is a major part of their learning. I hope that you consider Burr for your child's educational needs. - Local School Council Chairperson"
