School has a high turn over rate every year, you will not see the same staff members each school term. The administrators lack leadership skills among its staff and as well with parents. If your thinking about enrolling your child here I would research other magnet/IB schools before doing so.

My child attended this school last school year and it was a delight for her to attend. The staff was very friendly and the foreign language program was great! My child learned a lot. I would recommend this school to anyone that wants that extra special something that a reg public school can not offer.

If you look at the ratings for different groups, it's clear that some groups are performing better than others. The reason for this is simple: Burton has a lot of disadvantaged students, in addition to a significant number of students who are not disadvantaged. I think Burton has great teachers who are working hard to reach kids in all these groups, but the school ratings used here punish any school with a large percent of disadvantaged kids. My daughter is gifted and works hard, and she has educated parents. The gifted programs at Burton have been really good for her. Clearly, not all kids are performing equally well. I think the school is doing very well, though, and rating schools by comparing performance for all kids in the same way, regardless of their background, doesn't do a good job of representing the good job this school is doing.
