Burgin Independent is a small, family oriented school that focuses not only on education but the well being of its students. Due to its small size, teachers and staff gain close relationship with each student. Students in High School and Middle School will have the same teachers for their period of learning during these years. The small atmosphere allows for a more gainful learning experience for students. Staff are able to become more involved with the family as a whole and know them more on a personal basis. Student/teacher ratio is around 15/1. There is no drastic adjustments that have to be made between elementarty, middle school and high school because it is limited to one building. Students are able to gain close relationships with peers throughout their entire learning experience because of the limited amount of students. Friends will last their entire school experience. Burgin Independent gives students a private school learning experience without the cost.
I have a son who is in the second grade at Burgin and his teacher is the caring and most understanding teacher I have seen in the school systems for a while. And I am proud to say her name is Mrs. Harmon
