This school is great. They have really helped my son. They have excellent teachers. I wish I had not paid for the private school that my sons went to, as this school is better.
This year is our fourth at Burlington. My kids love it, and wouldn't want to be anywhere else. The teachers are fantastic, so caring and enthusiastic. The Principal (Janis Hughes) sets the tone, striving for excellence and compassion.
I went to this school for K-5 and it sucked, if I acted up once They put me into a 6x6x6 room. The only good thing were most of the teachers, the Principal at the time and maybe still is Mrs.Hughes...
I love Burlington Elementary. The whole staff is wonderful. I love the Freiker's program and the encouragement to play on the playground!
Excellent teachers & principal who care about each child. The PTO is very involved and there is a strong feeling of warmth and community created by them. My child loves it and is thriving both educationally and socially!
Burlington Elementary is a very close nit and diverse school that invites everyone to get involved to make the school a success. The principal, teachers and parents strive to make the school and community proud to send their students to Burlington!
My son just had his 'ceremony' at Burlington denoting his graduation to middle school. He spent 3 years at Burlington and finished with high marks. The family attitude at this school is outstanding. The principal leads the way for all of the staff in creating a comfortable atmosphere for the kids. I am not sure if the gifted and challenge program will still be available next year because of budget cuts. The G&T program at Burlington that my son was involved in was led by a fantastic teacher as well. Ultimately, I believe that my son was challenged throughout his years at Burlington. He comes out of Burlington with a love of reading and math while performing at middle school levels in both categories. I am pleased with the education he received at Burlington.
This is the start of our children's 2nd year at Burlington, and I couldn't more pleased. I have been extremely impressed with the principal, Mrs Hughes. She is always smiling, she takes care of any concerns right away, and she manages the school wonderfully. Mrs. Etherington, Mrs. McMillan, and Ms. Sherrill are wonderful teachers. My children are learning at an impressive rate, and I can't take much credit for that. Veronica, the front desk secretary is so helpful and cheery, too. If you can, send your children to this school!
This is our children's 5th year at the school and I absolutely adore it. The teachers and principal are amazing and are genuinely concerned for my children and their welfare and education. The secretaries are fabulous as well.
My son and daughter both attentded Burlingham over two and a half years and I couldn't have hoped for a beter set of administrators. My son has some light special needs and these were met and exceeded by his warm and dedicated teachers. My daughter loves it here and is really bummed to be leaving the community that has taken both of my kids in so readily. Burlington is a great example of how an elementary should operate.
Very happy with both the administration and the teachers in grades 1 and 2. Teachers Wilden and Powers in particular are excellent educators. Definately a top choice in my humble opinion.
I went to Burlingotn for 6 years! I loved it. The school is the best in town from what I hear about other schools that my freinds went to! It's safe, and fun. I ask of you please at least try it for a year if you don't like it go to a differnt school.
