We have 1st and 3rd Grade boys at Burroughs and couldn't be happier. The teachers are committed and sincerely care about the children. The parent community is amazing and very invested in the success of the school. I would highly recommend this school.

I am extremely dissatisfied with this school. The staff was completely unresponsive and not well-versed at working with children as unique individuals.

Huge academic focus. Strong principal leadersip. Very strong parental involvement - some teachers may lament 'too strong'. The specialty programs are first rate. This is a private school education at a public school price.

The teachers make learning fun and who else has their music teaching playing the accordion in the lobby every morning when they come to school. Rock and roll at the end of the year!

I am a grand parent who is very involved with my grand children. I have been very impressed with every aspect of our grandson's experience at Burroughs.

This school is phenominal. We have been delighted and amazed by the quality of teachers, the facility, the curriculum, and the overall feeling of community and involvement of parents. We can't imagine a better place for our kids.
