I rate this school 3 stars. I have family that attend here. Good academic choise. The sports here usually do very well. Teachers seem concerned with the students and their future growth in the community. Never here of any contraversy. Coming to this school is always a pleasure. The football games are always exciting. The atmosphere is very intence, especially when their in a tight game. I came to a year end orchestra event and it blew my mind. My little cousin was in it. I was very impressed. There was a great turnout for that also. I haven`t met a lot of the teachers but it seems they have the students under controll. Never here of fights at all. Safety there is under controll as far as I know. The grounds are very neet and clean. The parking lot is well lit up at night and during all events they have.. I would feel safe walking onto the campus alone. Basket ball games are exciting to me to The cheerleaders really rock the gymnasium during all the games I have attended. They have you jumping up and down to the excitement. The school is involved in the community as well. $5,000.00 raffle tickets are great.

I as a parent of a Burns High school child do agree with the comment about the principal. he is really controlling over the teachers and students. He acts like he just doesnt care about them and he is just plain rude and disrespectful to every one even the parents. Also as that person said the teachers are so caring and really care about education. Burns could be the best high school around i believe if they had a different principal.

As a senior here at Burns, I feel that I have been provided with the best eduaction possible. I feel that I have been offered sufficient classes that have prepared me for college. I am now ready to embark on the next step of my life because of the support I have had as a student from the faculty here.

Burns High is one of the best in the county! The only thing I don't like is that a couple of the math teachers are not certified in math!

I think the academic programs are top notch but I would like to see more AP classes added to the curriculum and more students interested in challenging themselves to take them. The extracurriculum activities are available and most students seem to enjoy the opportunity to have lots of choices. The level of parent involvement is average, usually the same parents are involved and the same parents are uninvolved unless their child is in 'trouble'. If parents were more consistent in their communication with the school personnel, then less opportunity would exist for misunderstandings or misinformation.

The quality of academic programs is improving because I believe the administration is putting more importance on AP classes, which was needed.The music program is very good with great leadership. Art is improving but more student work needs to be displayed and appreciated by the general public. Sports needs more dedication from the students. The level of parental involvement needs definite improvement for the benefit of academics and better behavior of the students.

Burns High School has many problems, some of which are as follows: Burns disciplinary actions. Another problem that Burns has is the fact that they focus more on sports than they do the fine arts. During my attendance at Burns I realized that there was no possible way to have a production from the drama club, or a very advertised concert from chorus. When it came to football the whole state knew about it.
