This is our 5th year at Burkholder and we currently have a 6th grader. Our older two children had very positive experiences while attending BMS. They are truly a team and work together with parents to ensure the students succeed. They are akways looking for ways to improve even when test scores are high. They have high expectations and rigor for the students. The school also recognizes how important it is to recognize student achievements and accomplishments. They also offer fabulous band, orchestra and choir programs as well as a large amount of after school activities for the students.

I recently attended this school and loved it! The teachers are there for us the students, and there are fair rules and regulations. It's a beautiful school, and very easy to navigate around. I had no difficulty finding my classes.

I was a 8th grade student for this 2007 2008 school year i felt that this school was a terrific school and that the teachers were not only fair but they were very student to teacher freindly!I had no problems with the teachers/administration nor the students this school had a very good after school activity selection!!!!!!Overall i loved this school and will miss it dearly becuase even though it was a very spread out campus it was still very easy to get around from class to class!!!!!!

My son went here (the last year before the rebuild). Was a great school. My daughter s 6th grade year was at Mannion (good school & staff). Starting back at Burkholder, this school seems to be ran more like a prison then a school. They have punished kids without proof. They have not allowed my daughter lunch at least 1 time. The principal & dean will fight you if you disagree. I have had them lie to me and break their own rules. They treat our kids like numbers. Minor issue with only 1 teacher.

This school was a great school. Most of the teachers were great. The school may have been very old but it had a spread out campus that made it easier for students to get around.
