Burgard Vocational High School 3

Burgard is a wonderful school for students interested in the automotive industry, CAD/CAM drawing, and welding. We have caring teachers and administrators who work hard every day to help students achieve success.

This school is way behind on testing scores and is an unproductive community. The students come from broken homes and have other things on their minds besides learning, which makes a productive day very difficult. Teachers spend more time controlling the classroom and keeping kids from fighting each other than teaching. The administration rarely, if ever, follows through with actual discipline, and it takes multiple attempts by a teacher to convince the Vice Principal to take an out control of student from the classroom. Furthermore, they patronize the students by condescendingly referring to them as "children" and "young people" and using a three-point check system for behavior that the students treat as a joke. There is little structure to the students and teachers' lives too, as schedules will be switched during a semester to take effect immediately, meaning that students and teachers lose classes without warning. Needs a major overhaul.
