Burroughs Middle School has the best academic program of any middle school in California. Dedicated hard working teachers and support staff make this possible.
The students are great there, as are the staff. I've taught science there now for a few years, and wouldn't want to teach anywhere else. The principal is very motivated to be involved in the school, and works very hard to give our kids the -'You can all go to college message!' Burroughs believes in its students. Like I said- great staff and great students. I love Burroughs!
JBMS has excellent teachers and administrators that focus on the education of our children. It's a very organized school and has several programs and information.
I have to use this space to thanks teachers like Dr. Cohen, Ms Helal, Ms Armendaris , just to mention some of them, for been so helpful and patient with the students. Teachers, staff, administrators , parents, all work together to prepare and motivate our kids to be ready for college and to be grate citizens. JB is one the best schools in Southern California.
Support at this school has been great. I appreciate all the teachers and support from the administration.
JB has the best teachers, administrators, staff, students, and parents/guardians. Why wouldn't any child not want to attend school here? Our students learn from the best.
John Burroughs Middle School has the best teachers that take time to help out their students.As a graduate from John Burroughs I have seen how the school really keeps up with the students and how they care for each and every one of them.Aside from all the classes and teachers Burroughs also has great activities for all its students that we all enjoy.Overall it's an Awesome school!
I have had the opportunity to take part consecutively for the last 6 years at the school. In that time I have learned from every person who is a part of this school. The staff members are continuously giving their best best efforts to our students. Mrs McKay (principal) has created a perfect team that involves students, teachers, staff, coordinators, assistant principals, secretaries, nurse, and safety personnel. In my opinion John Burroughs has an open door and everyone is comfortable and together solve what is needed and work together to improve the school.
I appreciate the support in the two years that I have been at this school. Communication is very important here. It is the first time that I have had direct contact with the principal in the two years that I had my daughter enrolled at John Burroughs, which is very good.
I love John Burroughs MS because there is a lot of pride, children are treated with respect, and we have great parents who work with us to continue in our quest to make JB the best it can be!
The staff, parents and students all work to make every day the best. Great school.....My kids love it.
Blue Ribbon School that focuses on College Prep for all students. My daughter loves it there. The teachers are great, the staff and the surrounding community. They always put the students first. There is a great afterschool program for the kids and their Test Scores are great!
This is a wonderful community - John Burroughs M.S. - The school image is great. The administration along with teachers and students as well as the parents are united as one team and this is what makes the school flow so wonderfully. I love the fact that they are a public school with a complete private school image. Keep up the great work JB Middle School !
My child has come out of her shell since she has been going to this school. Thanks to all the wonderful teachers she has had
an awesome school with great teachers, although many of them are getting laid off. has a good library too.
I'm a parent of a JB student who graduated recently. My son received a very good education at JB; and his teachers were highly motivated teachers. My thanks and appreciation to the whole administration for an excellent service to our community.
Outstanding! I attended my nieces' 8th grade graduation today and thought is was the Best commencement I have ever attended! The Administration, Principle, Teachers, Staff, Parking Staff, absolutely everyone I came in contact with was an Outstanding, Positive person! Hats Off to JB! and Thank You All!
Great school! I love it and I am proud to be a part of it! I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! Good: Fun, friendly, and teachers don't bug you every minute of the day! Also the teachers are funny even as they teach you! I know this because I attend this school right now as a 7th grader. It includes many activities like orchestra, drama, sports, dances (only if u WANT to go to them...they are afterschool and u eat In N Out burgers) and even fair-like events! Bad: You don't get your own locker, except for PE and there are so many people who attend here. But the more the merrier right?
hey. well as a graduate of John Burroughs Middle School i am very proud to say that this is a wonderful school. It has challenging programs to offer such as Magnet, SAS, AVID. JBMS has wonderful teachers who dedicate their time to enrich students academically. They also have great staffs. They have cool clubs to join and wonderful P.E. teachers. They have many athletics events to enjoy from. For example, Students Run Los Angeles(SRLA). It was really fun running the 2007 marathon. It really prepared me for highschool and i am currently a straight A student taking AP classes. I really recommend this school. Thank you JBMS!!
