I am a Burchell High School graduate. I was very reserved when I was in high school, which led to me being severely bullied at Colony High School. At Burchell I found a supportive environment, caring staff, and the freedom to study my areas of interest independently. The staff involved themselves with my education to a point that was truly impressive. They care a great deal and it shows. Burchell has a reputation for being a slacker school, but it is just the opposite: staff here expect all students to exert themselves. While attending Burchell I was able to hold a part-time job and also take college classes thanks to their flexible scheduling policies, and thanks to this school I was accepted to a prestigious foreign exchange program just after I graduated. Burchell High School pretty much changed my life. Highly recommended.

Burchell High is by far the best school to attend in the valley. This school gives kids that might not have ever had a chance to graduate the opportunity to succeed. They treat you like an adult and teach you how to function in the real world. Unlike other schools in Wasilla, Burchell doesn't tolerate harassment, bullying, or fighting. So kids can go there and feel safe. I was a Wasilla High drop out behind a year in classes do to harassment from other students, and the principals overlooking it. By attending Burchell I not only graduated almost a year ahead but also with a 3.8 GPA. So for those who think that the education level isn't efficient, your wrong. I'm in my last year of college getting two bachelors degrees in Marketing and Business Marketing, thanks to the education I received at Burchell!

Burchell is an amazing school. It is very student orientated. I am proud to say that I am a Burchell graduate. However, I must say i appreciate all the students that are writing such amazing comments about the schoo, but maybe we wouldn't get such a bad rep if you guys would show what you've been taught. I noticed so many misspellings and grammatical errors, this can explain why everyone has been trying to shut our school down. I know you guys are trying to help, just apply what you know! I'm a grad and almost done with my degree. Burchell has taught me everything I needed to have such a successful college career.

burchell high school helped me in so many ways that a regular high school would not. they just don't teach you school material but they prepare you for the real world. This school is really great family oriented place. for most students this was they're family.nThe staff is amazing as well.

many people think Burchell is a school where everything is slack. when I attended the school, I was taught thing I would really need for life. because of my experience at the school and the help from teachers, I have the confidence to go to college and crate a life for myself. if I never went to that school, I never would have. the grading scale is a little on the odd side and is hard to understand. but after a while, it all makes sense. the teachers there are not only there to teach, they actually talk to the students like they were real people. I also love the fact that the school is on a first name basis.

Burchell is a bare minimum education with a faulty system of grading. The education is lackluster and shocking when closely examined.
