Burnside is a good school . Most of the graduating class will attend the better high schools in the city. The school provides a safe and secure environment inside as well as outside the school. The school need more parents to get involved.

my daughter presently attends preschool at Burnside and I am very satisfied with the teachers and staff, they are kind and friendly. My child comes home happy to talk about the evaporation process and being a author of a book.

I feel the school is giving the children the challenge and education needed in order for them to become the children of our future. I also think that it's time for the parents to speak out form the teachers that care for and educate our children.

I attended Burnside, and my 3 children have also attended, its a great school with fantastic teachers. Ms Carol Anderson and Ms Antoinette Shaw are the 2 best instructors any child could have.

I was disappointed about the lack of communication between the school and the bus service this year, but overall, I do enjoy the teachers and the new administration. The assistant principal ...  Read more

I am impressed ...  Read more
