Handles bullying effectively: Strongly disagree


- a
Bullying is a huge problem with this school. Some teachers don't seem to take notice or care to stop behaviors from escalating until the bullied student takes action to protect them selves and then are in turn punished.

Supports LD students: Disagree


- a
504s are often over looked if it isn't convenient for the teacher to follow.


Teacher effectiveness: Strongly disagree


- a
No communication between the teachers. Kids are far to young to be switching classes and teachers, especially if they are not going to communicate with each other. Some of the teachers show no patience or compassion. We even dealt with a teacher "tattling" on our son when we asked if he was involved in the class disturbance that had occurred. Was done in a very unprofessional way as if a child was telling on another.

Amount of homework: Strongly disagree


- a
Homework is not consistently given and not enforced to be taken home when it is assigned.



- a
Most Teachers and staff do not communicate with each other so while one may be aware of a situation with a child others that they work with are not. Medication that is required is not given on a consistent basis. Bullying is a huge concern in this school. Some of the words and terms that my son comes home saying are being said to him are appalling! Over all not a good school at all.


Amount of homework: Disagree


- a
Homework is not up to par for the grade. No studying is done. No notes. No books. It's ridiculous



- a
My children have attended three schools since arriving in Clarksville 2 years ago. First was Rossview; then they changed the zone to Oakland. We moved to a larger place and was told we had the option of Rossview and Burt/St.B's. Come to my surprise; Rossview was NOT an option when I had to sign up the kids for school. I was livid but signed them up for Burt. Needless to say, this school is one of the worst my children have ever attended. Not just with academics, but mainly with the BULLYING and lack of supervision. My son had to change classes because one child kept hitting and threatening to kill him; plus much more. Now that my son has changed classes, his current teacher does little to nothing to stop the bullying. For kids that defend themselves, they are also reprimanded and have in-school or primary suspension. My daughter is also bullied and comes home in tears most days. I would not even consider going to any of the teachers. The principle that is there currently is doing well. It is her first year and has been extremely helpful. But, if you can afford and can drive your children elsewhere. PLEASE... PLEASE DO SO. If I could legally drive they would not be going to Burt. (I cannot drive due to an ongoing medical issue).

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
They work hard for all the students and really care. The staff is available and receptive to parents concerns.


Amount of homework: Agree


- a
The homework that is given is to reinforce what is learned during the school day. It isn't overwhelming but is preparing the students for the challenges of middle school.

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
The teachers and administrators really care and are willing to work with students and parents.
