    "Burnett has the International Baccalaureate program for ALL middle school students. This education provided a holistic world view integrated into all subject areas. All students get 8 classes, with 2 of them being electives. There's everything from Native Speaker Spanish to Speech, Art, and Music. As of 2015, Burnett follows a Blended Learning model including technology and station rotations with individualized learning into every classroom. The teachers are creative and caring despite all the challenges they face in an urban environment. The campus is clean and most students are friendly and respectful. I mean it's middle school...the students' hormones are all over the place. Burnett is a fabulous school to be at. Go check for yourself!"

    "Burnett rocks! Dont judge a school by economic based API scores or just by word of mouth- Go down there and visit yourself! Burnett is an International Baccalaureate school specializing in giving kids a well rounded, global minded education. It has changed dramatically over the years and continues to get better. People who hate on Burnett have to understand it's MIDDLE SCHOOL-the hardest, most hormonally socially awkward years of a child's life. I'd challenge anyone to find more creative, dedicated teachers than the ones at Burnett. They take their challenges and make them successes. If you want a staff who just assigns chapters and asks to answer chapter questions, go to Bret Harte with their high API scores... Burnett teachers won't do that because they are innovative teachers who truly care about their students learning so they create whatever they can to help students learn and feel successful."

    "The administration at Burnett is top notch. Both Ms. Aguerria and Ms. Luz are very impressive and have high expectations for the students and really care about them. This school keeps getting better. My child has had some fabulous teachers this year, and has enjoyed her time socially."

    "this school is awsome. When my friends told me what some people are saying i just could'nt understand why. i mean of course there are some kids that think some teachers are unfair, but what about the teachers that are very kind and think about the kids education. And yes there may be some kids that are mean and judgemental, but really there's kids like that everywhere! like to the school im going to know, it gets me stressed so much that i hope im going back to burnett."

    "This is a poorly managed school. Students are not happy, teachers are not happy. They say that the Principal "micro-manages" everything they do taking away their creativity in the classroom. Aren't two heads better than one? The gangs and clicks; the bullying is not handled appropriately. Children should not have to be subjected to ridicule in school. My child, who excelled in elementary school is so depressed, she doesn't want to go to school anymore. And what is wrong with the District office that they continue to keep a Principal that is a failure with a capital "F.""
