This school is very involved with its students. The teachers teach their students. If your child does not understand something the teacher will take the time to help. The school has plenty of assistants to also help students. The school has reading programs for children who need extra help. These reading teachers are very dedicated to their work with children. The school also has all kinds of activities that involve the student and their parents. The teachers just don't assign homework and not check it, they give grades. The teachers are also creative with giving assignments and projects. The school does not just teach the tests like other schools my son has been to. So I believe my child is getting a solid education.

This school is unbelievably awesome The principal, teachers and staff take their responsibilities seriously. We have our son, who attends this school and gets special services. The support and hard work is greatly appreciated and we see our son growing and strengthening every single day. One day, he will know the foundation of his education started here at this school and we as his parents will never forget the people who made it possible! Thanks to all at the Burns Avenue team, you are super! Thank you.

I have nothing but good things to say about Burns Avenue School. The teachers, staff and principal are totally dedicated to the students. Any problem (and there are not many) has always been addressed and resolved. My Dunn, the principal, has an awesome staff that always goes the extra mile, even if your child is not their student. There is extra help if you child needs it, and there are accelerated classes (like Great Books and Math Olympiads) for the advanced learner. This is truly a Great School!

This is an excellent school with sincere and dedicated teachers. The transition for my two kids to this school was pleasant. The Principal strives for excellent discipline and high academic standards. Reading, Writing, Math and Science are excellent in all grades. Extra help is given to the students who need it by an excellent group of teachers. The Music teachers are wonderful. I now have two instrument players who love music. Art Program is superb. Check out their end of the year EXPO to enjoy the creative program, Even the second graders were taught to make a PowerPoint slide show presentation. Computer clubs, Great Books and Math Olympiads offer extra stimulus for the advanced students. Send your kids here for a lovable school experience . The teachers really know how to make learning fun!

Burns Ave is an excellent school with a wonderful principal that cares. Mr. Dunn goes beyond the call of duty and is willing to speak to all parents on any matter concerning the school or your child. Academically it is challenging for the children. My child does very well and loves her teachers. The PTA is very involved in this school. My child was originally at Westbury Friends and this place ranks way above Friends. I recommend Burns for anyone considering on moving into the Hicksville or Jericho Gardens with elementary aged kids.
