Burlington didn't want to follow the IEP to the letter but had no problem telling me what I had to do to follow the IEP. When I pushed the issue that the school had to follow the IEP, it fell on deaf ears. When I reminded the administration that this is a document that they had to legally follow it fell on deaf ears. I was told by the superintendent that I should get an advocate, in other words an attorney. So, I yanked my kids out of that school and now I wish I had done it sooner. My kids are thriving in a new school and I am not stressed out and am sleeping now. What a difference this change has made for my kids and myself. This school isn't worth even talking about.
This school isn't a place for kids with learning disabilities. The staff and administration actively disregard IEP and act as if they are doing you a favor by showing up to IEP meeting. If your kids are overachievers then this is the school to put them in. They like kids who don't complicate their days and don't challenge them to think outside the box.
I Love this school and so do my kids! The teachers are awesome and if I had a disabled child I wouldn't want them going any where esle! I put on 36 extra miles a day just so my kids can go to Burlington. I have had 7 years experience with one chld and 5 years there with my youngest and have yet to have ny problems. They do really care about character, and they show it every day!
This school lacks many of the academic programs that are available at other schools. They have a barely adequate learning disabilities program. Most of the staff are friendly but there are a few that are out right rude.
