This school has come a long way! Supportive, caring teachers make this little neighborhood school a wonderful place to be. We love it here and It just keeps getting better and better.

I see great improvement in recent years. My child likes her class, the material is explained with patience, and the teachers are working together on the curriculum. Overall, it's a good school.

Burbank is a really good school with smart kids, good staff, loving teachers who really go out their way to help students. It does what it can with the budget and still score high. Its one of the best schools in LAUSD. Though the school is located in Valley Village, for some odd reason it doesn't get any attention at all from the Valley Village neighborhood council. When I walk by Colfax Elementary School, I see numerous posters displaying donations of resources and money to the school. I also notice the strong involvement from the neighborhood council, even also being displayed on the fence. I find it all that even though they say they serve all of valley village, Burbank doesn't see ANYTHING. NO DONATIONS, RESOURCES, NO HELD MEETINGS. NOTHING. NADA. ZIP ZERO. Why is this? I never get any of my inquiries returned. Even though All of valley village is nice, is it because its in the part the elitist people over that way describe as "Seedy?' To "Stay away from because people pass Magnolia don't make as much money as suggested from people on the internet? So much for the "Village." Making differences in children even though the test scores are virtually the same. Shame

I admit I am biased as I have been a support staff person at Burbank Blvd ES for 16 years. But I see that the teachers are very dedicated, bright and have big hearts. They are always open to helping their students both emotionally and academically. They are good with both the gifted students and those with learning difficulties and willing to make modifications to bring out the best in all the children. The current principal has a very good understanding of what makes children "tick" and she is willing to do what is needed to get the help the child needs. In spite of the very tight budget, this staff bought one extra day of psych time to provide counseling and behavioral support for the students. I always ask to come back. It is an amazing elementary school.

We just moved out daughter from Camellia Elm. to Burbank Elm. and we absolutely love it. This school is definitely set to help your child succeed. Our daughter was so behind on her education going to the other school. They have a Saturday class here that helps student's progress and achieve better grades. The office staff is beyond amazing and our daughter's teacher, Ms. Taylor, is absolutely phenomenal! From the first day she set up a meeting with us to help our daughter succeed.

Unfortunately, I give this school a below average rating. Fortunately, the school's performance HAS improved, but I believe that many factors contribute to this. My son has attended this school for the past 3 years as he has been attending Burbank since he was 3 1/2 years (pre-k), currently he's in 1st grade. Burbank teachers perform on an average level (hopefully not less than that), but sadly, the administrative staff performs at a below average level. Due to extenuating circumstances, I have no choice, but to keep my son enrolled in this school right now, but as soon as able to, I will change him to a better school = better staff. At least the former principal appeared to be sincere, can't say the same for the current one. I'm involved by volunteering and I take the time to teach my son what is relevant to him.

I am a firs time parent at Burbank Bld. Elementary,my son just turn five and he is kindergardener...I have notice there is none extra curricular activities not enogh parent involvememt or much input from school principal.I see that most kindergardener teachers go out of their way to help our little ones exel.However something that bother me was to see out side one of the kinder rooms was a display of kinderners work,based on red ribon awaerness day(drug free)that was completed by the children followin the sentence:I chose to be drug free,insted...(children had to compleate.) I think this little ones are way to jong to be thougt abouth dugs at least my son has no idea what that means,is a bit scary that what our children can be expose in such an early age.My question is: Is this Apropiate ?

Academic programs are excellent at the present but there should be additional programs that would include all student (ethnic) backgrounds. The availability of music, art, sports and any other extracurricular activities and totally absent for this school. The Teachers are very talented and devoted to their profession (those as of '07). Most of the teachers go above and be on what their 'teaching' description calls for. They have be limited with classroom funds and used their own 'out of packet' money to purchase items to encourage students, present cheerful classrooms, and get much needed classroom supplies. Parent involvement has been 150% 'great' due to the Coordinator who was a professional with a heart!! All of these things are done without the support of the Principal.

Being a first time parent at a public school, I have had a lot of questions go un-answered by the office staff Teacher Quality: My child loves the teacher and she is wonderful with her students. The work can be a little harder. I feel that the younger children should start doing small spelling words; i.e.; he, it, I, you. So they will be better prepared for reading in in the higher grades It would also look good for the school, as far as reading scores go for the students.
