Burcham is a great school! But I don't like the principal or the secretary, they're big phonies and pick and choose who they're nice to. I'm glad this will my Childs last year there. I hope one day they replace the principal!

Burcham by far exceeded every expectation I had for an amazing school. It is wonderful having pre-k- 1st graders together, because the whole school is geared towards that age range. Every effort is made to make sure kids are happy, healthy, and safe. The principal is easy to talk to in the event that you have a problem I truly felt comfortable with this being my sons home away from home.

Burcham has exceeded any expectation I have had for my 6 year old. She has attended Pre-K and Kindergarten and I have seen her thrive every day she has attended. The staff and administrators are the most caring and provide the highest quality of educations. We would absolutely recommend this school to anyone!

We moved to Weatherford when my daughter was in Kindergarten. The school,principal, and teachers were top notch. Everyone had the children's best interest in mind. I enjoy that the school is just k-1st so that the kids are all on the same social level (no 1st graders playing with 5th graders). Mrs. Reed is the best.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.
