Speaking from a parent who actually use to pay for private school---you really can't beat the education here. It superseded what children were getting in private and offers so much more! My eldest graduated in 2012 and is now at NYU & my youngest is a freshman.

I sent my daughter here because I thought that being in the Burbank School District would be good for her academically, and while the academics are good, the staff doesn't really deal with bulling very well. Last year my daughter had the worst year of her life at this school whiich finally culminated in a fight. The staff says to report bulling, then she gets labled a rat. You can't win. I believe the school administration is blind to what is really going on in the daily lives of the kids that are there. If your a good student everything is handed to you, if you get into trouble, then there are after you, lerking and watching your every move, making the child feel like they are being singled out. I finally had to transfer her out to the Glendale Unified School District. Hopefully she will prosper there.

I really wanted my son to do well in this school and up until freshman year, he was an excellent student. However, during this time, he started to show the first signs of what I now know is bipolar disorder. I really wish his guidance counselor and school psychologist would have advocated more for him. He has always been a sensitve/emotional kid, but his behavior at the time was very much out of character. When I inititally asked about testing, I was told I would not want him labeled as having emotional problems. This scared me off from getting him the assesment he needed at the time. My son got worse, he missed a lot of school due to hospitilization, and I was still informed that his permit would be revoked due to attendance and failing grades. I didn't have much energy to fight anything else at the time as I was a mess. I wanted to leave this review so that other parents who might be dealing with the same issue, know to get their child tested by the school psychologist) even there is push back. This is a very good school (which is why I wanted my son here) but not very helpful (with the exception of the school nurse - she was great) with kids struggling with mental illness.

I've been working at J.B.H.S. since October 2001 as a Sustitute Instructional Assistant, mostly with Special Education. The overall atmosephere is great. Most of the students seem to get along good. This school has a great "Best Buddies" program where the special ed kids interact with their other schoolmates on & off campus. J.B.H.S.has a Great principle in Mr.Urioste " Mr. U"

Perfect school. It has all the things my child needs to have a great high school experience. Outstanding in extracurricular activities; great choir, band, sports, etc. Teacher always have a fantastic attitude towards their students. This school has an excellent way of presenting itself. They provide lots of shows and teachers spend extra time for students to achieve high grades and make students feel at home and happy all four years.

My daughter was enrolled in a local private school for her freshman year and we ran into many complications. It got so bad, I had to pull her out and I placed her at Burroughs. We couldn't be happier! The staff is wonderful and they help her stay on track while maintaining a 3.8 GPA while being involved in extracurricular activities and sports. My daughter has made many friends and so have I. We couldn't be happier!

I am extremely proud to teach at JBHS. Our administration is supportive, we have outstanding teachers that go above and beyond and our school feels like 'home'. We are a very large family.

I was really impressed by Burroughs ability to make their school seem like a community in itself, the Principal and all the staff are so involved, and their pride in the school is easily seen

With all the school shootings going on in the rest of the country I was a little concerned, but I spoke to the Assistant Principal. They have all sorts of stuff in place to keep the kids safe. They really care about the kids. It feels like a family!

The school provides excellent guidance services by making sure that every student sees their counselor and completes an academic plan. Dedicated and driven administration. Principal definitely walks his talk.

I've been very happy with the education my son has gotten at Burroughs thus far.

Posted March 7, 2005

I can not say enough about the positive experience my son has had at this school. He is challenged academically in his honors classes and in the advanced placement class he is attending. He is in the chamber choir which has been an incredible experience for him as well. His self esteem and confidence has soared as his ability to perform in front of a mass of people has developed. He is so happy attending this school. He makes all A's and is already planning for college. This school and the parents invest in the students.

a relatively good school, but when i complained to the principal about some clearly biased and inappropriate political 'education' going on in a tenth grade world history class, the response was underwhelming, to say the least.

Well I'm not a parent but I'm currently a sophmore (9/18/03) and i have to say that Burroughs High is one the best around. Sure there is tons of construction going on but just wait until second semester and everything will open. To those kids who complain about being tardy, try not to stop and talk to your friends during passing period, or try going around the crowd, all the buildings have multiple exits/entrances and stairways for accessablity. Also, the teachers are very good at this school, but like all groups, there are always a few bad teachers here and there. Compared to middle school, my average GPA has raised from a 3.3 to a 3.8

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.
