0. If I could go lower, I would.

I was worried because of the rating and reputation, but the administration has really turned the school around. It is a welcoming environment with highly dedicated teachers. I know the test scores will follow soon. I feel lucky my kids get to go here!

I went here 6th and 7th but ended up switching schools by the end of 7th grade. Burnet teachers don't care about you there can be a handful of people who actually care but only a handful , they reward the bad students , everywhere you turn there's security and police , they don't trust you it's like if we were all delinquents , my grades went down really low and maybe your thinking that it's because we don't put effort but in reality some do! You just can't learn anything with loud classmates and rude teachers. This school is cheap , they can't re decorate they can't do anything and I still remember that everyday during lunch we would get screamed at , it was horrible if you really want your child to succeed don't bring them to burnet.

Thanks to those who posted in support of our school! We have so many wonderful students and so many hard-working and amazing teachers and staff. To label our teachers as cruel is just cruel :(. This is my 10th year and I am proud to teach here. There are many challenges and areas where we are working to improve, but please... work to be part of the solution! Advocate for your needs respectfully and don't give up until they are addressed. If you have ideas for how we can improve, please contact us and communicate! I am very optimistic about the way this year has started and I hope you are too! Have a great year wherever you are! :)

I went here 10 years ago and judging from the reviews, this place hasn't changed. I spent my 6th grade year here and it was so bad I blocked most of it out. The teachers were unnecessarily cruel, the place was run and felt like a prison, and the other kids hates me because I could spell. But looking back, I don't blame the kids the way the teacher review below does. Burnet is an amalgamation of the neighborhood. If we want healthier, happier kids (which I'm guessing the teachers and administration DON'T, judging from their behavior), then we have to work hard on a community level to give them hope. Like the student below says, kids here have no freedom, no hope, no happiness. It's a horrible school. If you're a parent, your kid deserves better. And if you're a teacher like the one below, please go do something that doesn't affect kids' lives.
