I've had three children attend Burnett between 1999 and 2014. I have seen a lot of improvements in this time. Mr. Julian is a great principal. He really cares about all of the kids, greeting them by name and encouraging them to do well. The school is a leader in the use of technology in education. Most of the teachers I have dealt with are excellent - some real stand-outs are Mrs. Elizondo, Mrs. Romano, and the current 6th grade team, Mrs. Harlow, Mrs. Stallings, and Ms. Mandeville. The halls of the school are lined with the students' art and writing projects. There is an after-school instrumental music program, and Glee Club (thank you Mrs. Barberon!). After-school tutoring and homework club is also available. One of my children was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome while attending Burnett, and the 504 Plan team was very helpful in providing the accommodations my child needed in order to be successful.
The teachers at Burnett aren't very good. The Intermediate side's science teacher does not teach very well. Most students there aren't very good either, and most seem to not care about their studies, and intend to focus mostly on other more unimportant things.
William Burnett is an excellent school. The principal, teachers and staff are dedicated to our students. I noticed parent involvement is stronger than it has been in the past. Since, Miss Waslif has become our principal our school's API scores have improved. Her commitment to our school has made it a better place to learn and grow.
William Burnett Elementary is great school with a great principal and good staffs. Thanks for working hard on students.
Teachers are very caring and knowledgeable. They foster students to think and learn creatively. Most importantly, students enjoy their learning environment. A great school!
I enjoy having my son go to William Burnett Elementary the teachers are very flexible and great with kids.
My children are 2nd generation Burnett students. Even after moving out of Burnett's area we applied to keep our girls there. The way that teachers and staff have always become part of our family's team is remarkable. In resovling problems with learning,and just making our girls feel like they are part of a second family at school is so comforting. The level of accessibilty we have as parents to communicate with whoever we need to at the school is wonderful. My husband and I are true fans of Burnett's educational, disciplinary, and school environment policies. I can honestly say that our kids are profiting from their elementary school years at Burnett. Sincerely, Lisa Santillan
Great teachers and good principal, but low parent participation. Primary grades are much more developmentally appropriate and hands-on. Much of this is lost in upper grades.
We're so blessed to have an excellent school for our daughter to go to, the teachers are very professional and caring, the confidence is always there knowing that my kid is safe and in good hands.We are so happy with the way lessons are given, our kid had a very good rating from state test. More power to all! (Thank you Mrs. Bronzini and welcome Ms. Neukam, new principal!)
