    "I have now left the school after trying to get a conference for months ..I have never seen this many incompetent people in one group. I dont know how they accomplished it. This school puts everything on the parent and child. They do not take responsibility. The children are not allowed to talk during lunch while this music plays for 15 min increments. I stood in the office with a crazy face and broke down to some lady that these children are not to be silenced because they dont feel like hearing loud noises. THEY ARE KIDS! My son learned nothing at this school. He failed in his classes simply because they do not know how to preaent curriculum. This is not a lack of parenting or interest but a lack of good organization, trust, pride and commitment. Sloppy is the best word. I contacted 4 people at this school by email telephone and in person. Still no call back. Who does that?"

    "This school is located in the lowest socioeconomic and highest crime area in the district. I am a teacher at Burnett and am happy to say I am about to start my 5th year teaching at this school. When I first started at the school the behavior issues were exhausting but with new administration and proactive behavior management plans, we have made great improvement. The new administration also improved teacher effectiveness through professional learning and expert guidance and support which has lead to exciting increases in student academic achievement. Whenever there is an issue with behavior or academics, any student, teacher or parent at our school knows she/he has a support team ready to help. The staff at Burnett wants to make a difference in the lives of their students and their community, starting with a great education of intelligence plus character."

    "This school is a title I school located in a low socioeconomic area and it seems that student behavior is usually poor in schools that are located in these neighborhoods. I have been a substitute there many times and witnessed very good teaching while there. The teachers do have a caring spirit, but while there are students who do act appropriately, there are A LOT who DO NOT ! Many of these students do not listen, talk while the teacher is talking, lack respect for adults in authority, and disrupt instruction. It is quite difficult teaching students who are disruptive and in my opinion that is a HOME issue and not a school issue. parents need to do their job at home and quit blaming other people for their problems. Get involved at home first as well as your childs school so you can help fix the problems you see."

    "My son has attended this school since the 2008-2009 year. I have loved the teachers and the communication for all the years he has been there except one but that doesn't reflect poorly on the school, I just wasn't excited about that one particular teacher. We have had some problems with bullying but the school has been handling it great with open communication, easy confidential and immediate reporting for my child, and vigilance. You are likely to find bullying in any school but I have to give this school props in the way they're handling it. Also, this school and I worked together to improve my son's academics. He went from being far behind grade level reading in his early years to being in the PC program this year and academically excelling."

    "This is a title I school meaning, it serves a high population of free and reduced lunch students. It also is situated in a zone that serves students who are high transient students. The teachers are highly qualified most with advanced degrees, they teach with heart and truly care. Simply, the population that is served is just different, many students come from homelessness and instability, many others come from single parent homes etc. What happened in 2006 or so was the school was redistrict to serve a more underpriviledge area thus more behavior problems. There was a wave of these new students that disrupted the school atmosphere, many issues arose the school was not use to. Now in 2009 and forward that wave seems to have passed. Teachers had to be stern many times with no support from home. It's unfortunate for those were unhappy. It's also renovated brand new."
