Burncoat Prep has a program where they encourage students to earn "Burncoat Bucks." The children earn the play money with good behavior and kindness. It is a wonderful rewards program and a math teaching tool.
I have volunteered at Burncoat Prep on several occasions and I have personally witnessed the Assistant Principal purchasing a baked good for every child that was unable to afford a treat. Burncoat Prep is wonderful, the classes are small and each student is truly cared for.
Burncoat Prep is a wonderful little school. Principal Catamero knows each and every student. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. The teachers truly care about their students. We could not be more pleased with our school. The reviews listed below are old and outdated, this school should not be overlooked. I would recommend to all looking to move into the Burncoat neighborhood.
All my kids attend this school,my oldests one (21 - 17) and my little one (8).Its a great school and the staff is a really caring teachers.Music department is great.My overall experience thru the years with my kids is excellent and I highly recommend Bruncoat Prep School.
In grade K, I have seen little or no parent involvement. This is unfortunate because this school is run so well, and led by a Principal who is as caring and determined as any I have ever seen in Worcester. This school is run the way I remember Thorndyke being run 30+ years ago. One way to get this school to become a 'neighborhood' school again, is to get the kids from the neighborhood to attend this awesome neighborhood school! Don't be discouraged by any remark I've typed here. This school has some great kids, and even greater staff. If I were you, and had the choice to send my son/daughter to this school, I would send them here...no doubt!
