Burroughs Middle School has the best academic program of any middle school in California. Dedicated hard working teachers and support staff make this possible.


Posted November 6, 2009

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!

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.

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.

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.

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 !

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!


Posted June 9, 2009

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?

The Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) School Experience Survey asks parents, students and employees about their school's learning environment. Results provide insight into school climate, such as whether the school is academically rigorous, engaging, safe, and collaborative. Learn more

We organized questions from the LAUSD School Experience Survey into five categories. The respondent group-level results (parents, students, and school employees) show the percent of each respondent group that agree or strongly agree that the school has positive results for that category.

Overall school results for each category are calculated by averaging across group-level results, ensuring that each respondent group is equally represented. Alongside the results for each school are the aggregated results across all LAUSD schools, which are provided as a basis for comparisons.
