I hate this school so much! They're so mean to you here! You don't get to be in the parties or anything! Worst school year ever!

I am very glad I am not going to this school anymore. I have to agree with my friend below me, they don't let you do anything, like parties or anything, they are just so unfair. I can't STAND most of the people here. -Salina

My son has attended this school for the past 2 years and we have decided to move as this school is only trouble. My son's attitude has completely changed since he has been going to this school, especially this year. He has changed in order to defend himself from all the bullying he encountered last year. My daughter went there for one year and graduated to high school. She says is absolutely horrible. There is fights daily. They have a lot of gangs and many students have failed 2 or 3 times still in middle school when they should be either juniors or seniors and staff has no idea this is happening. For all these reasons i chose to go back to my old neighborhood and have my kids go to good schools

My child currently attends this school. It has been challenging getting him through the school year. Kids are bused in from Grant Park, a lower socioeconomic neighborhood of the county. Most of the kids from that area have failed and continue to fail. Their main objective is to incite an altercation and bully the kids that are there to learn. Don't enroll your child at this school if you can help it.

Three of our six combined children have attended Burnett. I know that the teachers and staff are doing thier best to educate and teach the students to the best of thier ability. Our son is in the 7th going on to the eighth and he has maintained a solid a-b average the past two years. I believe that the staff at Burnett has projected the quality of leadership that the school system needs. I attended McLane (many years ago!) and the fact that confrontations will happen, is a fact of life just in a more consolidated area. The parental responsibilty to raise and guide our future leaders has slipped away from the focus through the years. We all need to trust and depend on the staff to help us identify and correct any issues that the growing up process may have for our children and thier sudents. I would give Burnett Middle school an A+ for the transition period in these students and young peoples life! Gary Perkins

I am diappointed to hear the bad remarks about Burnett..My child will be attending burnett this coming year, 6th grade. I toured the school and was told it was a safe and non violent school. I even turned down a very good charter school to be able send my child to a middle school that I thought would be a better experience for him. I think that the bullying needs to stop in every school. I was bullied as a kid, I am now 43, and it has long lasting effects on a person. It is uncalled for and will get you no where in life, but regrets that you did it as you grow older. Please start to think of what you say to a person before saying it and remember, would you like to be treated in that same manner?

I'm currently a student at Burnett , in the 7th grade. The only thing i like about this school is the 6th graders being on a different schedule than the 7th and 8th. Meaning , the 6th grade has no classes with the other grades. I would like it more if they didnt mix 7th and 8th graders in classes together. Most of the 8th graders are rude and slightly intimidating. I wouldnt reccomend this school to anyone... unless your okay with the drama students start up which usually lead to fights. Fights... There has been MANY fights this year. Food fights never happen anymore, instead students would rather throw punches. This School has so much drama, it is unbelievable. Any student would be miserable with the amount of drama and bullying at this school. Also, the teachers could care less about the students and parents. Basically, the student body is out of control. Too much bullying going on behind closed doors. Even in some of my classes a student would be saying hurtful things, or picking on their classmates without the teacher caring. Sometimes the teacher gets picked on too. Its crazy! If i had a choice, I wouldnt attend Burnett. Heck, I would rather attend Brandon Alternative.

I am currently in the 8th grade at Burnett, and I am ready to leave this school. Sure, the teachers are great and all, the administration is okay, and the food is way better than Colson Elementary, BUT the student body is seriously oh seriously jacked up. If you are a caring parent,pleasedo not send your child here unless you enjoy fights, bad language, smoking, and other whatnot. btw, if you dontbelieve me, I was here and I lived throughit.

I give this school a 4 1/2 stars. My son was able to achieve straight A's all year. I was very happy with the way his teachers worked with him and also keep me informed on his progress even though he does well in school! In the past when he would do well i never heard from his teachers. So it showed me that they are proactive in keeping students on track!

Alot of people have different takes on this school but I think it's great. The teachers and admin are exceptional, the halls are clean and non-violent, and the extracurricular activities are good, too. The cafeteria is sanitary, and the honors program is great. I'm looking forward to my next couple of years here.

I am a former student of Burnett middle school and my mother is a teacher there now (and forever, no she isn't going anywhere). The staff at this school is truly amazing. They are constantly going above and beyond for the students, with a few exceptions but hey, nobody's perfect.

I feel Burnett is a terrible school for kids w/ special needs. You have to fight, fight, fight and I mean above the school level to get any action. I can't say one good thing about it other than this is my child's last year.

I feel that burnett is a great school. i had two children attend this school and they both did great with their grades and i noticed that they both enjoyed attending the schools. burnett offers different activities like music, art, etc. one of their priority is getting the parents involved in the schools activities, life assisting with fund raiser and just helping out with assisting teachers with their glasses. i was very impressed on how the students reacted towards the principal, they treated him like if he was one of them, like their friends. i truly feel that the principals and the teachers at burnett really care about how the students do on their grades and just everyday peer pressures. i truly enjoy the music glass that my daughter attended, she learn so quickly and truly loved her teacher and she show a realy interest in wanting to learn about music

Both of my children have attended burnett middle school. I truly feel they both have excelerated in their academic learning process. the teachers are very helpful and caring. they take their time in helping the children out with their learning. they have lots of different academic programs like, music, arts, sports. many parents are involved in the schools fund raisers and in the children learning process. when I first attended the conference meetings, I was very impressed how the children who already attended the school show a lot of affection to the principal and to the teachers. this showed me that the children in the school had a lot of respect towards the teachers and principal and to each other. I felt very at ease and pleased that my children were attending burnett middle school. yes, I knew then that they were going to attend a school with a caring heart.
