My son's Kindergarten teacher was Mrs. Smith. she is a wonderful teacher. After reading the reviews from other parents, I am happy to see a positive review for Miss Humphrey, the first grade teacher because that is my son's class assignment for next this school year. Thumbs Up!

My son Stanley Johnson currently attends Burr Oak. I think it is a wonderful school, Stanley has some learning difficulties and the teachers at Burr Oak put him through a very thorough screening. I thought that was very beneficial to me and him to find out if he had any pshyological, physical or mental disbilities. Stanley is currently seeing a speech therapist and he is talking better each day. His teacher Mrs. Hartley follows up with me in letters and also emails, she a wonderful teacher as well. Thank You Burr Oak for being a wonderful school with excellent teachers and staff!

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
